What a lovely little restaurant. We stayed in Pontgibaud on the way from west to east France. It’s very off the beaten track and so I don’t think they get many English families showing up. The restaurant staff were so friendly and helpful even though...we had some French/English communication troubles. But we muddled through and helped a couple of Danish chaps out too!! Such a lovely relaxed place and the food was great too. Not much on the menu but they recommended the speciality of the region which went down a treat.More

We ate here one evening whilst staying for four days in Pontgibaud. Our first visit for an afternoon drink was interesting in I believe we may have been speaking to the "old lady" mentioned previously. Strange character, not really front of house but then again...the restaurant is somewhat different. I appreciate this is a bar as well as a restaurant and understand we are in the country. The local people have a greater affinity for such country pursuits as hunting. The décor was not to my taste. The food? This is why we are here was remarkable value. We six opted for the 27E menu. Plenty of choice. Veggies might have to look hard. We started with Kir and ended with "champagne" all included in the price as well as five courses. All good. Go try it but watch out for the badger perched on the shelf in the corner.More

We were taken here by friends who explained that the Owner was a little out there and had the title "Mad Woman" This amounts to her trying to make fun of anything or anyone who is not sitting quietly or hiding in the corner. I...requested another Pastiche (ricard - Greek Ouzo) during my meal and she raised the restaurant roof by pointing out that no one would be served such a drink with their meal, everyone laughs and I manage to get a Brandy instead. The food we had was a lunchtime set menu for around 14euro a head consisting of 4 courses, not haut cousin but the sort of food that locals traditionally eat of a lunchtime here in France. Do not visit if you are the timid type, only people with a sense of humour need apply Would I go back, well, in a heartbeat, you can eat food at home, but fun and food!?!

As my father already told me long ago "do not let TL lightning fool you" when entering a French restaurant! This is absolutely the case for Restaurant de la Chasse. The decoration might be a bit 'cold' the warm welcome of the owner in combination...with the fresh homemade food really makes up for it. "Unfortunately" our starter (scallops in puff pastry) was so copious that after our main course and excellent local cheeses (which the owner buys directly at cheese farms in the area!) there was no room left for a dessert. I guess we need to go back for that soon!More

The food was average as quite a lot of it seemed to come out a can. They lacked in menu choice, the waiter only spoke French and was a special character.
