Ate here with two friends. Had the blowout gourmet menu. Superb. Can't really say anything else. Always a welcome, always standards maintained. Absolutely recommended.

I was advised by friends to book a table for lunch. It was a good thing I did, as the dining room filled up during our lunch. Even so, the noise level was low and there was no irritating BGM. Service was good and at a human pace. The menu offered a la carte choices as well as set menus... More

I need gluten free food and they were truly amazing. They discussed the entire menu, offering options on most of the dishes to make sure I had plenty of choice. This generally doesn't happen. I ended up with a bespoke main course which was delicious. My husbands food was wonderful too. A real find.

The Croix d'Or is my favourite place to eat in the Perche. The food is always excellent and interesting. Monsieur creates good food in the kitchen while Madame (who is a trained wine expert) is welcoming, efficient and du bon conseil. A very agreable experience all round.

It is definitely is the one of the best restaurants of Lower Normandy. Owner run. Very good food with and excellent service. It is closed tuesday and wednesday. Even there is a 3 fixed menus they adapt to all tastes. Very kind with well behaving kids. Must make a reservation, always full. Very reasonable priced.
