For a birthday treat we booked the Saint Jacques for lunch. This turned out to be a serious meal for the educated palate.
The setting is delightful on the shady terrace. The gardens awash with the colour of geraniums and roses.
We opted for the set lunch for €27- starter, main, dessert, coffee including an aperitif and 2 glasses of Bergerac each.
Every course was a delight with ample portions beautifully presented. The service both attentive and discreet. I really cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. Tremendous value for the money. No Michelin star but certainly worthy of one without the pretentious nonsense of Nouvelle cuisine. We will be returning soon for dinner and staying the night in one of their reasonably priced rooms.

We have eaten at this restaurant 3 times now and the quality is superb. Not far off Michelin Star level but without the steep price that comes with that award. Their Ox Cheek is cooked for 6 hours and the meet just melts in your mouth. everything we had was delicious and this is not nouveau cuisine. The portions are generous and you will not br feeling hungry after the meal. The staff and service were excellent. It is a good night out

We had a very special Christmas lunch here. The menu was described as a 'Tapas' lunch. Not knowing what to expect but having had excellent reports from various people we thought we would give it a try for Christmas lunch. For a Christmas lunch for €35 per head plus wine it was not a disappointment and well worth every cent.
There were about ten courses, all quite small, very tasty and beautifully served with an explanation from the waitress as to what we were about to eat. Then sometimes in between each course something else not on the menu appeared.
The food was as good as any Michelin starred restaurant. Beautiful room, linen table cloths and napkins as well as excellent friendly staff. We will definitely eat there again. It is more expensive than the majority of other restaurants in the area but well worth it. We will try their fixed lunch menu which we believe starts as €26 per head.

We had a fabulous meal on Saturday evening, sitting in the courtyard under the trees, the staff were attentive and friendly, but the meal was the star of the show. Each course not only tasted wonderful but looked like a work of art, magnificent, cannot wait to return.
