Don’t go for the Food but for the atmospere. Like arriving in a Hobbit village. The typical Food fits the surroundings and washes well down with the red Anjou wine that comes in the menu.

Expected traditional Anjou food at this troglodyte restaurant - simple well cooked fare. What we got was traditional but not well cooked and 24 euros for four courses might be cheap but it was not value for money. We arrived at 8pm and there were...More

This is indeed a special place. You are taken inside the cliff into small caves with 3-4 tables each. The menu is mostly fixed: fouaces with rillettes, sort of bacon and white beans then cheese or other desserts, local wine and coffee or tea. The...More
