Excellent food superbly presented. Fresh local, seasonal produce with a gourmet twist. The staff were attentive and welcoming.
We enjoyed our meal and the ambience so much we went back 3 times in our stay! On a warm evening the terrace courtyard was delighful for alfresco dining.

The restaurant appeared pretty and the ambience seemed pleasant. however, it transpired that the owner was rude and unwelcoming; the waiter, unsmiling and slow (even for France).

The advertised "menu du jour" was not offered, bread was not offered (!); when ordered, drinks were painfully slow.

A Beef tagine woud have been tasty however, it can not have been cooked in the oven as the crockery was cold and the meat was still frozen in the middle!

No apology was offered at all.

Very expensive omelettes made made my mother vomit afterwards and my son nauseous.

This was a truly horrible experience which threatened to spoil my holiday.

We ate here two nights running because the quality of their food was so good. Fresh seasonal produce, and simple recipes to really make their flavours shine through. For example I had a soup - a 'cappuccino of asparagus' (just coming in season for the summer) which was rich and creamy, and very cleverly presented. The duck confit was one of the best I've ever had: melt-in-the-mouth texture and great taste. And the strawberry 'tiramisu' dessert was wonderfully refreshing. They also did an entree of eggs cocotte with a morel sauce, which was sensational. And it wasn't just the tourists like us enjoying it, plenty of French speaking locals were also raving about the food. We actually thought this was the best restaurant in the village.
