Found this gem on a Monday night on recommendation. Great produce, excellent young chef, complimentary amuse bouche with an incredible mushroom mousse. Service was excellent and great wine suggested by the maitre de. Definitely worth finding

Nothing special to report about this restaurant. Food was adequate and well prepared. Ranked very average in our two week vacation. Service was good, but the room felt a bit cold and uninviting. A bit disappointing with the reviews we read.

Two couples 9 O'clock and the food was disappointing with the only "good dish" being the beef which requires a 13 euro supplement and is consequently exorbitant. Service good environment pleasant but not either especially good or good value. It is conceivable we were there on a bad night

L’Alliance is a lovely little restaurant in the town, within easy walking distance of pretty much all accommodation. It had been recommended to us by our hosts at Les Fleurons B&B, who even contacted the restaurant to give them a “heads up” that we were both vegetarian (France is not renowned for its vegetarian friendly fare). So they made a valiant effort to please the eccentric vegetarians in France, and bombarded us with lots of baked egg and cheese combinations for both entrée and main – really, steamed veggies would’ve sufficed! But the service was cheerful and very friendly, and we appreciated their efforts (maybe one day, vegetarians won’t be such a novelty in the French countryside!). I don’t what they would’ve done if we had been vegan!

Overall, while the meal sat a little heavily, the evening was still lovely – mainly thanks to the ambience and the service. If I was only assessing the vegetarian meal, this place would've been "average" rather than "very good" - the regular menu would’ve delighted any carnivore, and there were many satisfied diners around us. Hopefully, they will begin to move with the times and offer other options on their menu in the future.

I don't normally revisit a restaurant, but made an exception in this case. Really friendly staff and excellent food. The 7 hour cooked lamb is to die for! Nicely spaced tables. Does get booked up sometimes. 3-course meal with aperitif, wine and coffee €50.
