“Without a doubt, our favourite restaurant in France”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

We've eaten at the Roc du Boeuf at least 5 times in the last couple of years and our experience has always been exceptionally good. Our latest visit on 2nd November 2013 did not disappoint.

Everything is spot on - the decor, ambience, and service is impeccable and the food is creative, delicious and beautifully presented on quality china and glassware.

The chef artistically uses seasonal ingredients and classic methods to produce dishes that are unique, unusual and tempting. Each dish (even the clever amuse bouche) has been carefully designed to embrace the attributes of taste, texture, smell and visual appearance.

The menus change with the seasons and we've now experienced all four. Each visit has been exciting and pleasurable. In August we dined outside on the attractive terrace.

Our (well-behaved) dog was also made very welcome in the restaurant.

I can't wait to go again during our next visit to France.

Here is a link to my website and blog where you can see a full review and photographs taken during our visit in March 2013 www.passionatefood.co.uk

“A pleasure to visit”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Our party thought everything was perfection at The Roc. The position perfect
the dining area atmospheric, the food superb and Natilie charming,
We considered this restuarant to be on a par with any 5 star kitchen in the Uk
and certainly better than several in our vicinity.
If you require a place to remember try this idyllically situated restaurant.

“"Fantastic"”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

This compares and possibly exceeds any restaurant anywhere...we have been there on numerous occasions....we always book a table whenever we are in France. The food is outstanding, the presentation is beautiful....like a picture on a plate. Natalie greets us by name and always goes out of her way to make it a special experience. We always take friends to the Roc de Boeuf...wanting them to share such a special place. Well done Roc du Boeuf...see you soon.

“Always excellent food”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

We have visited Roc du Boeuf on numerous occasions, and always have excellent food and service. The menu is imaginative, and the food beautifully presented. When we have friends or relatives to stay, we always take them to Roc du Boeuf and are never disappointed. Vegetarian friends stated that it was the best vegetarian meal they had ever eaten out. And this is not a vegetarian restaurant! Other friends took photographs of each course as it came to the table! Natalie manages to do the front of house in the restaurant completely on her own, taking orders, bringing out drinks, serving and clearing tables with apparent ease.
