MICHELIN Guide's Point of View

A charming little inn in Cathar country... Not accessible by car, diners come on foot, like pilgrims, to sample the house specialty: medallion of veal ...

Went for the cheaper set lunch menu and found the choices amole and the food stunning. Washed down with a lovely bottle of rose from nearby. Fun staff made the whole experience a delight and the views from the terrace spectacular.

My cousin has a home in the vicinity so I have visited on many occasions, and every trip now has to begin and end at Chantovent. We've celebrated holidays and special occasions there, but also "simple" meals -which are not simple but works of culinary...art. I would go there every day just for their very special kir, but the meals are excellent, service is superb, and the entire experience is always perfect.More

My husband and I celebrated a special day and as always the menu of the restaurant had due to covid 19 lesser choice but still enough to enjoy. Also the wine of the area, of course, is very tasty and has a reasonable price. Outstanding...desserts for choice. The vieuw on the terrace makes it so special and even when you have a table inside there is still the opportujity for enjoying the vieuw. As always the served dishes were creative and tasty ! Typical south of France.More

We regularly visit this superb restaurant. During this October break, we visited for lunch twice. We've never been disappointed since the quality of food and service is second to none - fantastic! The value is excellent and the vibe with which it is presented and...delivered always makes me smile. I would thoroughly recommend a visit and would be surprised if you left with anything other than a satisfied expression after enjoying a quality repast. The booze is good too.More

Relais Chantovent was a lovely experience. The terrace overlooks a breathtaking view and the food was creative and wonderful. If you're in the area, Minerve and this restaurant are must-visits.

A friend who lives in the area (and eats here frequently) recommended that we call the morning of our visit to make a reservation for lunch on terrace, and that worked nicely. (I don't think they take reservations via email.). The view from the terrace...is wonderful -- although it looked like a few people had a bit too much sun, mostly the awning provides good shade. The staff is friendly and efficient, but our lunch took at least two hours, so don't expect fast food. We had the 25-euro menu and it was enough for us, and quite tasty. You could certainly spend a lot of money here (with high-end wines and the full tasting menu) but we actually didn't spend that much.More

This was recommended by our host as a special venue. Set up in the quiet village overlooking the gorge the food was excellent. As non french speaking English we found the menu a little challenging and the staff don’t speak English (why would they!!). The...choice if set menus offered variety and we went for the middle priced one. Each course was well presented and the taste was awesome. The cod was exceptional as was the tomato and mozzarella starter (slightly different from what you would expect). Nice touch was the chef coming out and going round the tables, although we couldn’t converse the effort was appreciated. For a restaurant of this standard in the UK we would easily pay double! I couldn’t recommend this any higher and would certainly return if in the area.More

Faultless food, service and Location. The staff made us feel very welcome and coped very well with my lack of French! Would highly recommend to all but book well in advance. Stunning food and well priced.

Their menus appear only in French. Suggest you copy and paste into Bing Translator, or similar, and this should give you a fairly good idea of what they offer. It is a very good restaurant and the staff speak English so... More
