A quiet and small restaurant in a quiet little street in a quiet little town in this "forgotten" regio of France. The service by the lady of the house is classy. The food is traditional local cuisine with a personal twist from the chef. You need to make a reservation, otherwise bad luck! Worth the search.

We have been coming to this area of France for our holidays for a few years now and each time we make a beeline for this restuarant. It really is amazing; the food, service and prices are incredible...16 Euros for a three-course lunch that truly leaves one speechless with happiness. The restaurant is very small so it's good to book. There are lovely outside tables for sunny days and the interior is wonderfully cosy for cooler/colder times. Miriam the front-of-house dynamo makes you feel so welcome and Patrick's cooking is gorgeous. Our favourite dishes? Gesiers salad; the gratton slice; veal liver; the pork dish; fish tart; duck parmentier; the brochettes de boeuf; lemon tart; hazlenut tart; the potatoes...I could go on forever because we have never had a bad meal or even a bad dish here. The wine is great and reasonably priced. There is literally nothing I can criticise this place for, except for the fact that we live in England and ony get to go once a year!

Le Gavroche is fine but I was expecting better. The front of house lady is very good but some of the dishes, most in fact, were uninspiring. It would be fine at one of the cosy little road house type bistros but Le Gavroche had given the impression of aiming higher. The fact that there was an amuse bouche, the best thing on the day, would tend to support that impression. Some very good wine here, including some very good small bottles.

La Gavroche is situated up a quite street just off the main front road. We dined at lunchtime so the Plat de Jour was the only offering but we were not disappointed.
The starters were fairly average but the mains of beef skewers/frites/salad and a lovely fish dish ( can't remember the name of the fish ) with boiled rice was most enjoyable.
Our dessert choices were tart au citron and a mango/pineapple fruit salad.
We had a pitcher of house red to accompany with a bottle of water.
The waitress was really helpful and very attentive, despite the fact she was the only one serving and all tables were full towards the end of service.
All in all a really good value ( 16 euros each ) lunchtime meal.

We visited at the end of June and managed to communicate although my french is pretty terrible! The owners were very helpful with the menu as my husband is celiac and we therefore had a very tasty 3 courses. The restaurant was busy with locals which is always a good sign - and the patrons were also very friendly! I would highly recommend this restaurant. Well worth hunting for it!
