outstanding cuisine. The hostess owner spoke excellent English, was charming and informative. Excellent wine list. They have a choice of several prix fixe menus. We chose the Gastronome - 3 course. Many tempting choices, outstanding presentation, the food an exquisite gift to the taste buds. Ambience - relaxing contemporary chic. It is one of the best meals we have ever had. Don't miss it, if you are in the area.

Nice food, ambience and easy to find. Located in a tiny village, the lady owner is very hospitable and took the time to explain the (French) menu. Her husband is the chef. Perhaps if they had an English menu it would be easier...

I tried the local dish of veal’s head, which was jelly and meat but beautifully presented. It was unusual and yummy. See pictures for other dishes we had. Nice restaurant, definitely recommend if one is in the area.

P.S. I tried to reserve by email but had no reply so ended up phoning...

If you are in this area, make sure to visit this intimate little restaurant. We eat from the 3 course menu and found it difficult to choose from the tempting choices on offer. We had a great evening and considered the restaurant faultless.

Not easy to find professionally cooked and served food in a tourist area, but here it is. Ultra modern decor in a very old building works well. Plenty of choice on the menu. All the dishes we had were so attractively plated that it seemed a shame to eat them. Delicious amuses bouche, asparagus mousse and salt cod brandade, foie gras with chorizo, lobster, chocolate tart and the best petit fours ever with the coffee gave me a memorable birthday treat.

Why hasn't this place been awarded a Michelin star (or two) ?
The 3 course menu proved excellent, 2 amuse bouche (asparagus mousse / gambas) were served as well as some freshly baked bread......fois gras with chorizo and red peppers, red mullet with 3 types of cauli......
Ling with a shellfish broth.....all exceptional.
Dessert to the same standard followed by coffee, coffee accompanied by exceptional petit fours (all "Maison")
All for €35 each plus an excellent Sancerre (the wine list is of the same high standard as the food)
Can't wait to go back next year and experience the tasting menu.
