The restaurant was recommended to us by the desk person at our hotel, and it was a very special experience. It feels like a place locals enjoy, as well as visitors to the town, beautifully designed and decorated. Photos are shown on their website. It has a lot of charm, and a menu we found to have unique selections. We completely enjoyed our dinner that is called "pierrades"--a selection of sliced meats (beef, pork, and duck, in our choice), which you cook yourself at the table on a hot stone. Delicious! (And fun!) We'd highly recommend this restaurant!

The quality of the food (meat) was quite good, however visiting with 2 families was difficult due to the long wait before food was served.

1. Long wait
2. A pork dish for a 5 year old was undercooked (pink in the middle)
3. Meat not prepared as ordered (raw instead of medium)

All orders were done in French, by French people

The restaurant is situated in a small street a bit away from the centre. Maybe this is the reason why I only discovered this restaurant only now although I visit Aurillac every year since 2004.
The interior and it's decoration is simple and the wood and beautiful local stones are the stars. The staff is very helpful, friendly and very efficient.
We were two and had a main course and cheese. My friend had a salad of warm goat cheese, potatoes, bacon and lattice. It was simple but very nice with good products and a nice dressing. I had a fillet of veal, girolle sauce with a gratin dauphinois. It was delicious. Good quality meat, the sauce had correct consistency and the gratin had the correct seasoning. Portions are also good. To accompany this we choose a small bottle Puisseguin-Saint-Emillion 2006. At 11 EUR it was correct.
As we prefer cheese rather than sweet to conclude a meal we took the plate of local cheeses. Unfortunately we could not choose, but the selection was made for us. It contained three local cheeses: Cantal, St Nectaire and Bleu d'Auvergne. The Cantal cheese was in our opinion a shame to be served in its own region. Even in Brussels we can find the same quality. But the St Nectaire and the Bleu d'Auvergne were very good as we are used to eat in the region.
Last but not least a small remark about the bread as it was of an excellent quality.
And during the coffee paid happily the 57.60 EUR and made plans to return soon this nice discovery.
