A warm welcome, traditional menu, very good value. Popular with local people. We reserved a table for lunch which was necessary. I had an Entrecôte, chips, salad and my lunch companion had Steak Tartare. Both dishes excellent and served very quickly. Strongly recommend this restaurant.

Perfect for a quick lunch this buzzing roadside café has a very traditional French style about it with friendly, efficient staff and a simple menu with a good range of excellent food. Great for a break between local wine tasting in the area.

Traditional, family run restaurant serving a delicious selection of dishes. Very friendly staff and excellent service. Dine inside or out depending on the weather - set amongst the beautiful vineyards with views over the French countryside. Destination of choice when working in the area!
