I was there with my girlfriend and my best friend. We had dinner during a cold winter evening and couldn't tell it was winter. The interior design and atmosphere are all too warm and welcoming. I had the typical truffade which they make with goose...fat and let me tell you, that's a real treat. Plenty of food, delicious taste, good wine. What my dinner mates ate looked equally tasty. Like most people before me I suppose, I strongly recommend to take the detour up to the Buron du Col, you won't be disappointed.More

Stopped for a drink walking up Puy de la Tache from Le Mont-Dore. Would have got something to eat if we hadn't brought a picnic!

We came here and wanted to eat but unfortunately it was fully booked. They offered us seats on the terrace but it was just a bit too cold too sit outside. Looked really nice and good prices but make a reservation to be sure you...get a place.More

Le Buron du Col offers a nice variety of perfectly prepared meals for anything between "dropped by for a coffee" to "starving after the whole day of hiking". Myrtille mojitos are definitely a must. Don't overestimate your hunger ordering truffade, you will be facing a...huge portion of deliciousness.More

We called in for lunch while touring the Auvergne district. The staff were very friendly. The menu offers a good and tasty range of Auvergne dishes, we had the omelette (huge and very tasty) and a very generous platter of cold meats and chesses. The...prices are very reasonable.More

We were visiting Auvergne on an untypical day in late May when it was snowing and sleeting and very cold. We stopped here for lunch. The menu is simple, and we decided to have the local fare of Truffade Maison (fried potatoes and LOTS of...cheese in a sort of galette or omelette, accompanied by a LOT of sliced ham). It was a huge amount of extremely heavy food. Strangely addictive, though. I wanted to keep eating, even after I was very full. Since the small restaurant was empty when we arrived, we were astonished to have a large group of older hikers appear, seeming out of nowhere, to shed their packs and coats and have lunch. The place was instantly full! Very warm and inviting, and recommended to anyone who is in the area and would like to try the local food.More
