I am truly surprised at the few less than ecstatic reviews about this restaurant. Obviously, one's lasting impression is inextricably linked with the actual dishes one selected and may have been totally different if an alternative selection had been made.

In my case, I started with the escargots which were, for me, the only indifferent part of this meal, yielding little of the cardamon and roquefort flavours which commended themselves to my appetite. My partner was delighted by her Opea de saumon with its strange, cakey base and by the the Dos de Cabillaud (a kind of cod) that followed. For me, the filet mignon de cochon was sublime. We had 2 desserts, the best of which was the coffee conconction which combined smooth jelly with crunchy elements. The other dessert whose concept was a sweet lasagne was let down only by the fried crust whose flavour wouldnt quite leave the pallette.

This is exactly the sort of restaurant I aspire to eat in when travelling around; where the chef relentlessly challenges his guests with unlikely and improbable combinations of flavours and innovative presentation. These are the hallmarks of Michelin star quality restaurants and if this chef doesn't eventually get this acolade, then life truly isn't fair. Oh, and by the way, the house rose wine was the best I have ever tasted!

Give this place a go; it's in the middle of nowhere and even on a Friday night, only half full. It deserves to be supported!

First the good: the restaurant is in the centre of Créon, easy to find, and lovely decoration. Parking is plentiful out front. There is a lovely garden out back.

The food was good, not great. The risotto was boring.
Cheeses were ok, although the (rather pushy) waiter misidentified them.

The waiter kept recommending things we didn't want, rather forcefully.
We went along, but were disappointed with the result.

We asked for a 21 euro bottle of wine. He strongly recommended another, a Cote de Gascogne...that was ridiculously over-priced at 29...and we only found out when paying.

Everything about the experience felt like the staff were trying to squeeze every last euro out of us.

And they succeeded: 85 euros for two mains, two cheese plates, and a mediocre, over-chilled bottle of wine.

The whole experience left a bad after-taste.

I would never return there, and would not recommend it to others.
In fact, I would tell people visiting the Entre-Deux-Mers to avoid it.

Go to the 'Saint Leon' in Créon, or the nearby 'Baron' instead.
