I ate at this restaurant three times (and once just for dessert!) while in St Cirq. The food was delicious each time- well cooked and beautifully presented. The waiter was helpful with English when we struggled with our French. We decided that a large lunch...More

We ate Sunday lunch on the terrace shown. Both the food and the service were excellent. There are rooms on two levels and a second courtyard, but so leisurely was the service that we did not realise how busy the restaurant really was until we...More

It doesn't have the views that some of the other restaurants have but the FOOD!! Delicious and plentiful, a good price for the area and lovely friendly staff. It's the best in Saint Cirq!

An initial shock when we were shown to an enclosed back yard when I had taken the trouble to book a terrace table weeks in advance. Once we made a fuss and got it sorted everything else was just brilliant. The freshest melon ever, a...More

Given the time of year (in the middle of August) service was excellent and the food exquisite. A different take on SW French food, flavours from elsewhere mixed in with traditional fare and very well presented. The restaurant was suggested by friends and we can...More

Our food was excellent and the set menu was very good value. However, the service was poor. The waitress appeared indifferent to our needs; it took ages to order wine and she did not communicate an allergy requirement to kitchen. After making it very clear...More

We usually go to La Tonnelle in St Cirq because we love it. But we decided to try Le Cantou for a change. It was excellent. Our main courses were amazing and the desserts- it was great. Will definitely be back.

Absolutely delicious food!! Not a tourist trap at all. Everything from the duck samosa to the pork belly and the cheesecake dessert (nothing like the American cheesecake-this effectively put it to S-H-A-M-E...i love cheesecakes btw) was absolutely decadent. I will return to this place over...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Do you have to have a set menu with three courses (formula) and can you have a "lighter" type of lunch? Thanks.

Response from cheryl t | Reviewed this property |
yes there is a couple of versions of fix prix. You have lots of entrees to choose or an appetizer if you want lighter. A very fun little city.
Do you have dinner that is not red meat or duck? Do you have fish or chicken?
