“Most popular village in France”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

Recently changed hands but good news, the new owner is the long standing chef.
Really good Quercy food and also open in winter...ie they have a good attitude, friendly to estranger, I have been visiting for many years and simply great. Cassoulet better than in Carcassonne, v good local specialties.

“Food was only "good"”
Reviewed June 5, 2012

this restaurant serves good food, but it was not as good as i'd hoped given the "hype" of serving traditional food from the region. Seems to draw a lot of folks in from the tour buses that stop up the road.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed June 1, 2012

We were staying at the St Cirq Hotel and had booked a table at this, the hotel's reastaurant. at least a week before. We were rather sad to be given a poor table therefore, in a very over crowded reataurant for its price. Our waitress was efficient and friendly but that was about the only postive thing we have to say I'm afraid. We think it suffers from what we call the 'Stratford on Avon' syndrome ie a restaurant in a honey pot village where there are few local residents and diners are tourists staying only a night so that making an effort for repeat bookings is not necessaary.We were sat at 8.05 pm and were out by 9.10 pm after some time spent choosing and a three course meal not including an amuse bouche. As soon as we had finished a course the next was in front of us. The choices were traditional and dull, the plat du jour of coq au vin was the worst my husband had ever eaten in any country tough and tasteless with gloopy sauce and I could not finish mine. May be we made a poor choice of wine ( a midprice Cahors) but again we didn't finish it, very unusual for us!, and certainly not what we expected in a restaurant which is meant to be showcasing local ingredients.
We did advise the young waitress of our disappointment, and would have expected the maitre d' to come subsequently come for a chat, but nothing.
The next night we ate at 'Le Cantou' and had a delicious , imaginative, freshly cooked meal using local specialities and ingredients, well timed and friendly service, lovely wine and half the price.

“Excellent plat du jour in a beautiful medieval town”
Reviewed May 9, 2012

This town is very old, full of shops and restaurants. Le Gourmet Quercynois met our expectations of very good restaurant in an ancient house. We all ordered the plat du jour which was coq au vin, or chicken cooked in red wine. They did a fine job, but since none of us had ever eaten this before, we were disappointed with the appearance of the chicken, purple.
Although it did taste good.

“What a terrible tourist trap restaurant”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

good point
A great location
And the bad points

Very expensive,food dreadfull,staff unpleasant, a real tourist trap serving badly cooked and served food with surley waiters racking up the expensive bill as high as possible and then getting even more surley when the tip isnt huge.
Avoid like the plague
