Another visit to an annual favourite. This family run restaurant has a cool dining room with very attractive naive wall paintings of local beauty spots. It has not changed in 30 years but is still elegant, attractive and smart. The service is excellent, friendly, helpful, but not all that quick. All the food is cooked fresh to order and for... More

Am in two minds about this restaurant. The quality of the products used is very good but for me the menu needs a lighter touch especially for the summer. We went in August and the choice for the main course was coufidou de mouton, pieds de cochon, tete de veau and steak. I ended up eating just the vegetables which... More

Another visit to this regular favourite of ours for Sunday lunch. The very high standards are being maintained. The food remains excellent and the service and ambiance supports it well. We would say certainly 1 Michelin star level and the price for what you get is very reasonable. A must of you are in the area but you will need... More

Don't miss this one! It is now well over a year since a wonderful dinner at Hotel Baldy in Fondamente, and I was wishing just this morning I could go back. The restaurant is some what dated, but still quite nice, comfortable and charming. The screens on the windows was a nice touch, which I think more french restaurants should... More

Apart from the exquisite dining room, with its painted panelled walls showing local beauty spots - which gives the room a strange aquamarine glow - the whole ambiance is delightful. Completely traditional food and all delicious. Be brave - try whatever they recommend ! There is a pretty terrace for apperitif in summer. This family run hotel is rather formal... More

Well-renowned restaurant in the middle of nowhere - book well ahead - serving fantastic local specialities and worth whatever detour you have to take. A few rooms upstairs which are lovely - although we were a bit hot in an unaccustomed heatwave. Wonderful friendly family service and reception, and an amazing (completely amazing) breakfast the following morning. Wonderful, wonderful...

The dining room is attractive if idiosyncratic with slightly naïve wall paintings of local beauty spots. The menu very varied with some local specialities (not to everyone’s taste as there are mainly various offal related dishes) and mainly more mainstream stuff. On Sunday for lunch the place was full as is usual, do not attempt to go without booking well... More

We have just paid our annual autumnal visit to the Hotel Baldy and it is a treat that a gang of us regard as one of the highlights of our French restauranteering . We were not disappointed. True, the hotel looks as drab as the village from the exterior .... and the restaurant is a time warp set in the... More
