This restaurant is sent in caves , so makes for an interesting and cool/pleasant evening. It specializes in the food of the region. Our menus consisted of 4/5 small courses(like starters) which came with oval shaped bread - the idea being that you slit the bread roll in half and fill it with the different items (e.g. mushroom. pate, pork) so there is a lot of bread. As I was with a group it was an enjoyable evening but not the most inspiring of meals! I was rather fed up with the bread and same format.

Arriving in Doué-la-fontaine on a wet and rainy Sunday afternoon, the concierge in our hotel recommended this restaurant. The surprise was the restaurant was built into some caves and after a very pleasant set meal had the opportunity to look around the caves. Well worth getting a meal here if you are near doué-la-fontaine.

Staying nearby we walked to this restaurant for an evening meal, with a little difficulty we found the way in and walked down the steep slope to the entrance. We were slightly early but were welcomed and invited to investigate part of the cave system. Do not miss this it is very worthwhile.

Soon they led us to a table. At the same time they started up the fire in the oven where the staff cook the flatbreads that they serve. The meal was more interesting than good, but all edible and enjoyable. It was based on what was eaten there historically.

After the meal we were invited to explore other parts of the cave system. These led to a difficult climb with insufficient light, fortunately we had a small torch. Then while coming down a second set of steps the lights came on. This is an experience; do not miss it if you are near.

We came here as part of a group and the underground troglodyte setting is certainly stunning. The staff were welcoming and seated us quickly in one of the three or four caves. The food came out quickly and was good, not excellent but not bad. Plenty of wine aided digestion.
A place to visit and admire the architecture but the food was a little ordinary.
