We were recommended this restaurant by the boulanger in Chalais but had been warned that without a reservation we might not get in. We hotfooted there just before 12pm and were met by the maitre d'hotel. When we told him that we had no reservation, were only passing in Chalais but were very keen to eat in his restaurant, he very kindly let us in! And what a treat it was! From the welcome to the service and from the menu price at only €18 to the food it was all absolutely fantastic!! The restaurant was full but the food came quickly, it was so beautifully presented and so tasty. We had a great time and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone in the south Charente region.
