My colleagues and I ended up eating here on a recent trip to Bourbon-Lancy, as the other restaurant they had picked was not open. Very nice restaurant. Hospitality was very good. I ordered the Menu Bourbonnais, with the Café Gourmand. If your used to American beef the texture of the Charolais beef is a little tougher. But the flavor of the dish was excellent. And the Café Gourmand was a surprise, crème brulee, mousse au chocolate, sherbert, a piece of cake, and espresso. After the meal, which I ended up leaving about 1/3 of the steak because I was full, I was not sure I would be able to eat all the desert. But one taste and you could not have kept be from finishing it all. Delicious!! Well done Chef Michel.

Dompierre-sur-Bresbre seems like one of those places you just pass through. Another little village like all the others. We were picking up a Locaboat canal boat and using public transport to pick it up. We found ourselves abandoned by the bus outside the deserted railway station. It was like one of those futureistic movies where you wake up and every one is gone. We hauled our cases up the hill to the village looking for life.
The Auberge de l'Olive was like an oasis! The propieter offered to call us a taxi so we decided to have a meal first. It was wonderful.
The restaurant was buzzy and comfortable. Everyone was enjoying themselves. The menue had excelent choices. We had the plat de jour which had a main of Veal. The overall meal was first class. The service was friendly and efficient. Staff were fluent in English, and tollerant of our bad French. :)

The facilities were modern and spotlessly clean. I definately recomend this restaurant.
