Decided to give Le Presbytere a try having seen more favourable reviews and looking for a quality restaurant in the area as our favourite is moving soon.
We had booked in advance and we're pleased we had as the restaurant filled up during the evening. The set menu was short with 3 choices for each course ( a good sign showing that the food should be fresh). Starters were marinated salmon, prawns in a veloute, mains were sea bream, sturgeon cheese, puds were apricot crumble, meringue
And mousse. A seasonal menu, each course was well cooked and attractively presented on the plate. cheeses to share ( a nicely presented plate of 7 cheeses) were added.
With house wine and coffees the price was 162€ for 4 people - good value for a restaurant with V&B plates which is obviously aiming high - good luck - we will be back.

Good menu choices and good portion sizes, friendly if haphazard service. The razor clams were rubbery and had bits of shell or grit in them. Green veg was cold but could have been excellent as nicely presented and cooked. and Surprised that we were not asked how we wanted our veal cooked, though it was a good size and tasty. The sauce was splodged on and was very gloopy. Beef pronounced very good. The dessert was very nice but not exactly adventurous. The wine list was poor and the white wine was served too warm. Atmosphere was a lacking - quiet for a Friday evening.
Acceptable with promise. Will try again next summer to see if has been refined.

Lovely setting in centre of village next to the church. Beautiful front garden with outside tables as well as inside. Ample parking in front.
Limited menu but food of top quality and well presented. Chef trained with Bocuse.
Wife at front who speaks good English.

We visited this renewed restaurant with friends. I would highly recommend you this place as not many restaurants of that type do exist in the neighbourhood. Relaxed atmosphere, fast service and friendly. We had a fixed menu as some festivities were in the village. The entree with claims were excellent. Fish was somewhat overdone, but the duck was perfect. Fixed 3 course menu for a fear price.
Seems to be also nice inside on more colder weather, terrace very nice surrounded by lavender.
Correct stop for a nice evening.

Le Presbytere has had a least 3 sets of owners in the last eight years, please can the new ones stay!

Having read the recent reviews we decided to go again after having been horribly disappointed in the past. Well, it was stunningly good. There is enormous care and attention to detail to present plates that are oozing fresh produce, freshly prepared to order. We loved the hommage to mediaeval flavourings of cinnamon and other spices in their Hypocrates infusion which worked beautifully with the red wine reduction served both with either esturgeon (local estuary fish, very earthy, meaty flavour) or a fabulous piece of filet steak. The influences are very mediterranean with a wonderful first course of vitello tonnato amongst the offerings. The veal t-bone in the main courses was perfectly cooked and melt in the mouth. Puddings - fab! We cannot wait to go back and enjoy it all over again.
