We ate lunch over-looking the river and chose from a varied and interesting menu offering a combination of courses. We had two different prawn starters,followed by a meat or fish entree, hot cheese and desert. There is a good wine menu and food is served with a smile. What more can you ask!

Went here for lunch the other day and was pleasantly surprised at the quality and excellent value of the food. My starter of hot gesiers with salad and foie gras, was unfortunately not hot when served. However it was rectified immediately and the chef came out to apologise and explain what went amiss.When it did come back it was perfect... More

We chose the 3 course menue for Euro 16. And got 3 delicious, finely flaoured dishes. From a Goats... More

We (4 of us) had lunch at this restaurant, mid-week. The food was very good and the situation of the restaurant, overlooking the river, is great. We would certainly return.

Visited this Restaurant several times during our stay in this region. Why? because of the position on the River, the menu,which didn't cost the earth and not least the attention from the Chef who took time to explain his menu,was very pleasant and spoke good English.Spent my Birthday meal here and had the most delicious Crayfish tails and Salmon salad...

It's like dining at a relatives house with funny smells in their home and which get transferred back into the cooking. The cooking wasn't the best either. I'm afraid though it's probably one of the best given the choices around. We also had one of the scariest cheeses I've ever experienced. It was so strong and came in an innocent... More

Visited on the night of the Fete de la Musique. Menu hadn't changed much in the last 13 years which was disappointing. Good value though and lovely position overlooking the River Gartempe.

Course one was fois gras with apple, course two king prawns in cream and parsley sauce, course three pineapple and cognac sorbet, course four steak, fois gras,... More

We broke our journey at Montmorillon as it was somewhere we had wanted to visit for a while. Discovered the restaurant quite by chance and decided to try it out. It had a faded charm with peeling paintwork but at only €12 for a starter and main could hardly go wrong. We both had the same which was gizzards in... More
