This place is far from anything, but it is definitely worth the mileage.
It is a 'cafè style' restaurant - neat and clean.
The husband is in the kitchen and the wife is up front. That was all, as far as staff is concerned. When I was there, on a week day, there were some 15 seats occupied and it all worked very well.
Normally for lunch they prefer to only serve the Menu du Jour, but when I arrived I asked for the a la Carte, should I decide that it was my preference. "Not a problem!"
I chose an open red wine from the Languedoc.
I never-the-less decided for the menu du Jour, but wanted to replace the starter salad with a dish from a la carte - a salad with a slice of Fois Gras Poelée and a 'deboned' half of Quail. The salad was very fresh and the Quail and Fois Gras could not be better prepared and was delicious with its' Porto Sauce.
The main course was a Roti de Porc 'filet et Jambon', served with a Potatoes and Parsnip mash and vegetables. The Roast was perfectly cooked with a sweetish Pruneau sauce, as were the vegetables, but the big taste surprise was the mash. The addition of Parsnips gave it an extremely pleasant and unusual taste.
The dessert was Poached Pears 'au safran' with a home-made Mascarpone ice cream. It was a very sophisticated mix, which was absolutely delicious and showed that the owners understand what is pleasing to the palate. (I later found out that it was the wife's - Bernadette's - creation!).
The Chef - Daniel - came around and chatted with the guests and accepted my raving compliments gracefully.
With the coffee, I had a Berutch (a wild Prune) Eau-de-Vie...and a big measure at that, which was a nice culmination of an excellent meal with good service.
