Always exceptional for us. Been coming for 12 years now and every time we say we should come more often. Superb food , nice ambiance and the staff are so friendly. The food is beautifully presented and just outstanding. Last week we took a number...of friends who all really enjoyed it. Tonight we visited for Saint Valentin. A very special evening. Last year they added a terrasse. Favourite restaurant but book in advance. Many obviously think the same.More

We have eaten here over the years and it never disappoints. Service was slow but we were warned and chatted over a glass of wine.

This place is hands down the best place in Saint Jean d’Angely. We also went to #2 and #3 on Trip advisor and they were no where near as good as La Goule Beneze. After testing 3 different restaurants in this small village, we have...deemed this place a little gem. We order 4 different main dishes and 2 cheese platters over the 2 visits we made to this restaurant. The staff are lovely and the food is world class. Next time we are in Saint Jean, we will eat here every night without a doubt, in fact we look forward to our next visit which is likely to be in 1 years time.More

From the friendly service, to the excellent local food can't really find much at fault here. It's not cheap though but it is well worth it if you're int he mind to spoiling yourselves. Away from the main centre of SJDA so it doesn't appear...to get as packed as other restaurants nearby.More

Have visited several times this year and never been disappointed. Always a warm & friendly welcome followed by an excellent meal and wine at very reasonable prices. An understated gem! Not to be missed.

Had a wonderful evening at this restaurant - had a fixed price menu at €35 that was delicious. All the courses were sourced locally and our server took the time to explain this to us. Tried the locally Charentais wine and it was excellent. Save...plenty of room for dessert!!More

We thoroughly enjoyed our meals here. Beautiful courtyard for when the weather is nice which it was. Great service, really lovely welcoming staff. Great food.

We were very disappointed in this restaurant. The menu was unimaginative. Our main course (canard) was very tough and the desserts not up to standard.
