Don't be fooled by the party buzz right in the centre of town. You might think you'll have a great time but the truth is that is super noisy and not pleasant at all for a dinner meal and they are so understaffed that you will be waiting for service forever. Unbearable. Instead, go to this place, still at a short distance from the centre itself but far from the buzz. The ambient is exquisite, you eat right in front of the kitchen so you can see how your meals are prepared and the food is superb. I had my best meal in a 4 night visit here. Their duck is top notch, I really recommend it and unlike most of t he restaurants in the area, the service is first class and you are served in a very short time. They are very polite as well. Totally recommended. Go there and you won't regret it. Very reasonable prices too.

Good restaurant just out of the town centre. Recommended by hotel receptionist and a good choice. Busy, but fairly swift service from a good menu. I went for steak (extremely good) wife had tajine which she said was good. Recommended

We escaped from freezing, rainy weather into “L’Hote Antique” for lunch. We were warmly welcomed and shown to an upstairs table. The decor was a mix of traditional and modern. The service was extremely efficient, polite and helpful. The food was fantastic! Between the three of us we ordered fish with pasta, chicken tagine and a beef burger, washed down with an excellent red wine from the Languedoc region. The meals were fresh, cooked perfectly and delicious. Three previously unhappy and cold tourists departed feeling warm and satisfied.

Had dinner here before starting on a 5-day Loire Valley bike trip. Our server was Erica, a super-efficient, kind and helpful server. We loved this and will eat here again if we return. Charcuterie plate was delicious, of course with bread. The hot potato and ham dish was stellar comfort food. Tagine chicken was delightful Cheese course for dessert wrapped up a beautiful meal and evening. Chenin (Cab Franc grape) was very good. Nearing the end of the evening, the staff was definitely overworked but doing their best to keep up. We were impressed with the chef and kitchen staff. It was apparent they they wanted everything to be perfect.

A very nice combination of traditional and modern greets one, with the names of wine regions and wine varieties written on the walls as a principle decorative motif; appropriate, given that one is in one of the great wine regions of France. The preparation of the food is certainly professional and it was good, but there was nothing that stood out for us. The service was entirely appropriate.
