From the surly waitress to the plat du jour of tasteless potage and cold beouf, that was ordered to be cunard in mushroom sauce, to the overcooked cunard that was received as ordered, the meal was barely edible. We actually didn't stay for the included frommage because we just couldn't indure the pained expression of the waitress any longer. We weren't surprized that she nor the manager sitting in full view of our table didn't question that we'd left over half of our meal uneaten. The experience did have a few highlights though. One was the gentleman waiter, unfortunately he wasn't ours, with a sense of humour. The second was the potatoes served with the entree. They were thinly sliced russet, fried probably in duck fat, with wonderful spices. Although DH complained that his were cold, they were very flavorful and almost made up for the cunard I didn't receive and the cold beouf I didn't eat after the first few bites when I determined it was beouf. The third was the Carmelized Gateaux with pommes, noix and a lovely cream sauce and the final treat was the rouge vin ordinaire which was full bodied, fruity and very smooth. Based on the number of tables, this restaurant can accommodate a hundred or more guests at one time and has perfect views of Chateau Baynac. I'm dissappointed more for what the place could be than what I experienced but understand that sometimes these places rely totally on tourists knowing they'll not have repeats and can make a living serving what they want, how they want it, by whom they want.
