We returned for another lunch with our friend from St. Antonin. It was raining on and off and they seated us in the dining room overlooking the river. The view was very nice. We ordered the Menu Sensation, which consisted of four courses for 41 Euros. Two of us started with a Timbale of vegetables covered with ricotta with squid tempura, which was twice as big as it should have been. The other had a nice-sized dish of langoustine ravioli with a ginger-infused shellfish sauce. We all followed with a perfectly sourced and cooked filet of Saint-Pierre with a very light saffron sauce. For the plat, two of us had a Guinea Fowl dish with potatoes covered by a pastry crust, which was also twice as big as it should have been. The other had a satisfactory veal kidney dish. The desserts were very good. We had an excellent bottle of Crozes-Hermitage Les Meysonniers from M. Chapoutier that was very reasonably priced, and the service was friendly and professional. I believe that this is one of the best places in the area.

This is a nice little restaurant in a lovely setting, with views over the river below. The service was very pleasant and friendly on our visit (which was in September 2013) and the food was interesting. We had read a review from June 2012 saying that much depended on the sobriety on the day of the chef patron. That might explain why our entree was changed between ordering and delivery from what we ordered (or rather what was on the fixed menu) to something else (a delicious foie gras sushi) that we suspected may have been in the fridge as a standby.

Then came our main course, a ravioli filled with minced beef. But what an enormous ravioli it was: covering the entire plate and drowning in thick gravy. A photo is attached. It was actually very tasty but diners of less than unusual greed (fortunately, one of us is unusually greedy) were defeated by the sheer scale of the offering. No side dish or vegetable - just meat and more meat and gravy.

A very pleasant evening and the food was tasty. We had hoped to hear crashes and curses from the nearby kitchen to confirm our suspicions but there weren't any. Perhaps we merely imagined a colourful explanation for a rather curious dining experience.

We recommend the restaurant for location and service and, slightly less enthusiastically, for its food.

Enjoyed St.-Antonin-Noble-Val and Bruniquel immensely. Very picturesque and green. Imposing rock faces. Quite a place!
