Nice cosy atmosphere, very good service and tasty meal. The lamb rib was perfect, truffade lived up to its name and expectations. It was our second visit and we'll go again.

Overlooking the square in Parthenay, La Truffade is a very friendly restaurant serving good food which includes their special Auvergne potatoes cooked in a truffade. Have visited many times and will return!

Had a very nice lunch here off the set menu of the day. Pate followed by Auverne ham and the eponymous Truffade. Good and friendly service. Coped with one of the party's gluten intolerance well.

We regularly eat here as the quality is guaranteed - it's good, hearty, food typical of the Auvergne region centering on the "truffade" of melted cheese and potatoes - don't eat here at lunchtime if you need to stay awake and concentrate on the boss's...More
