Wonderful restaurant and delicious food. The setting is beautiful overlooking the gorge. The price was very reasonable for the quality of food and the owner was very kind and helpful. We’ll be back.

This is a most wonderful restaurant in a beautiful location. The views are superb from the terrace but that would need to be reserved in advance in high season. We arrived on spec and found a table indoors, and were treated to the most exquisite...meal. Slow cooked pork for 24 hours, a wonderful and most surprising vegetarian dish, excellent wine, fantastic desserts and everything perfectly plated and presented.

Couldn’t be better! The service was warm and welcoming with English spoken and even our small dog was made a fuss of! Spectacular views over the gorge which surrounds Minerve and the house martins were very busy overhead. Excellent choice on the 30 Euro three...course menu and a good wine list not overpriced.More

Amazing dinner experience between friends! The food was excellent, the atmosphere was both comfy and elegant, and the staff was professional and kind !! Plus the price of the dinner formula is just unbelievable given the quality and generosity of the meal. I especially loved...the entree : "Butternut rôti, cacahuètes torréfiées, fromage de brebis et son velouté de courge musquée" and the delicate mousse.More

This was the best meal ever. We had the eight course menu. It was very well balanced with wonderful sauces. Not too much for an old couple. Excellent service. The staff really enjoy serving and explaining the food. Highly recommended for a special meal.
