“The best around - and we should know”
Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

Laurence and Patrick are well know locally in the trade and as home owners in Oupia we were 'over the moon' when we heard they had bought the place and were coming !

The set lunch time menu is sublime and at night it just gets better.

Attractive, welcoming and Immaculately clean.

Monsieur Nicholas and family....see you tonight/Thursday lunch and for most of July and August I'd guess.

“Just Delightful for a Special Occasion”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

We are just finishing up a five week vacation in France and our last stop is Olonzac. Being Mother's Day in the USA today I wanted to make it a special occasion meal. We asked our hosts in Olonzac and without hesitation they recommended this restaurant. They were absolutely correct! Service was perfect and professional without being overbearing. The menu is varied with both fish and meat dishes. We opted for both the19 and 26 Euro menus. The food was just fantastic and the equal of many much higher priced restaurants we have visited over the past five weeks. One word of caution, the restaurant filled quickly for Sunday lunch, so if you are planning on going on a Sunday I would recommend a reservation. If you go you will enjoy this little restaurant in Oupia!

“Wonderful Lunch”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Almost the last building as you leave the village heading for Olonzac. We booked for a party of six and none of us had been before but we are all keen to go again. Lunch menu was E14 with a quarter litre of wine included. I had prawns as a starter which were delicious and main course was rabbit served with a variety of vegetables. Dessert was a strawberry and raspberry mousse which was absolutely delicious. The food, ambiance and staff are of the highest quality a return visit is definitely a must.

“Hidden gem”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

You usually don't expect to find a restaurant of this high calibre in a village the size of Oupia, but the word is definitely out. Regardless of which of the three dinner menus you choose from, you will be treated to excellent food and attentive service. On our two visits, we sampled both the 34 and 19 euro menus-both very good value for the money. Laurence does a great job of making you feel welcome, and she was quick to recognize us on our return visit. We miss this place already!
Reservations are recommended, especially on weekends.
