Highly recommend La Breche (we aren't staying at the hotel, just ate at the restaurant). Friendly and efficient service, mainly by the couple who seem to own the place. Happy to work with you in French but very competent in English. The food was excellent. I highly recommend the macaroon dessert - this is not Manischewitz, but an extraordinary dish with wonderful ice cream, some kind of cream sandwiched between two of what they do call macaroons. Somehow had room for this after appetizer, main course and cheese.

Welcomed by congenial hosts. The food and wines were excellent.
Great choice of menus.
Had a very warm ambience. Everything was beautifully presented. It was so good that we went again.
The night was made particularly special by the husband and wife owners who spoke excellent english and were vey helpful with suggestions.

La Breche is a really special restaurant. It is elegant without being pretentious; service is personal without being too intimate. And the food...divine! There are set menus for 2 to 4 courses in the range between 22 and 35 Euro, and they are all great value. I took scallops which were of the best quality. Wine selection is excellent. Do try the Sauvignon Fie Gris - it is an excellent white wine. Service, as I said, was inobtrusive but great. They did wrap us some food for a friend of ours who was sick. Overall, a great and highly recommended experience - do book in advance!

We went to this restaurant on a Saturday night this November because l'Epicerie and lion d'Or were fully booked. In the end we had a great dinner at la breche. The place is perfect for a Romantic occasion as you have enough space for the two of you (pretty rare for France), the atmosphere is relaxed and cozy and the staff is very attentive. About the food: had foie gras for starter was good but not really special, BUT trout and veal for the main course we're really amazing and worth coming back for. Both had the same dessert - figue carpaccio with
Pana cotta ice cream, both loved it. Last but not least, everything (food plus 2 aperitifs and 2glasses of wine cost us 65 euros). Highly recommend.

We too started our cycling tour at La Breche with pretty low expectations after a couple of very ordinary French hotel restaurant experiences; but we were delighted with the accommodation and blown away by the quality of the meal and the service in the restaurant. Absolutely superb food, waiting staff who are knowledgable about the local wines and a welcoming host and hostess made this a truly memorable experience.
