“Absolute gem”
Review of Le Saint Cochon

Reviewed 25 September 2017

We took friends to the Saint Cochon last Sunday. We knew the menu in advance and the restaurant would have changed anything if given notice, but we were fine, and not disappointed. The meal price is €28 p.p. for 4 courses and (unlimited) wine, which is great value considering the quality of the food, service and welcome by Ruud and Pascale.

Ruud is the chef and is proud of his cuisine, using only fresh ingredients. Pascale is front of house and very attentive. We had the filet de boeuf and it was superb, as was the starter, billed as cassoulet de fruits de mer, so we were not sure what to expect, and it was absolutely lovely. Then followed a cheese course and finally a trio of desserts with lovely flavours.

It is not a busy restaurant, as they do not advertise other than by word of mouth, but it is a little gem of a place. Always necessary to book, though.

I have given this review 5 stars as the combination of quality, service, hospitality and price is unbeatable.

We stayed in the B&B and were offered every evening excellent food, always different (fish, meat, poultry) with a superb quality at a low price. Charming hosts.

As regular visitors to the Lot et Garonne region of France, no visit is complete without at least one meal at Le Saint Cochon.
Every meal we have had there has been simply superb. It is always a set menu at a set price, with wine included. Excellent value for money coupled with top quality food.
Our most recent visit was for lunch on Easter Sunday and every course was delicious. It is clear from the presentation to the taste of every dish that the chef, who is also one of the owners, has a passion and a talent for cooking. The main course of lamb was cooked to perfection.
The service matches the quality of the food; the owners are warm and friendly from the moment you arrive and provide everything you need throughout the meal.
I cannot recommend this restaurant enough.

We enjoyed the food and the service was good but the evening was dominated by the full wall video projection of 1980's pop of which Celine Dion played a major role. I found it hard to concentrate on my food or the conversation with videos of Phil Collins, Duran Duran, Bonnie Tyler etc blasting away... .

On a personal note, I had made a conscious effort to forget this musical era only to find it making a comeback in the middle of a French field ,,, how bizarre !!

Its a nice place and the owners have clearly put a lot into it but suggest that they retain these videos for their personal out of hours use
