Tried this gem of a family-run affair with our children during our holiday in Cenac. Booking highly recommended. Food great but you need to allow plenty of time to enjoy the whole unhurried atmosphere and food. if you do not have the whole evening this is not the place for you. had the 25 Euro menu starter veg soup which was so tasty everyone had seconds ( bowl on the table so you help yourself ) followed by salad with pate then steak or duck with potatoes fried in garlic and goose fat and herbs- best I have ever had. Home made liqueurs aperitifs also outstanding. Jug of wine and fresh apple juice for the kids were also great. then came fresh jogurt type course which was pleasant, followed by home made cake and fruit flan and coffee . sat at shared table under the trees lit with lights with some others which was really nice after the initial awkward few minutes. the owner-restaurateurs are characterful and funny and come out to chat whilst serving but you may be told off if your plate is not emptied!
if you want to sample true local fare in an unpretentious setting and enjoy an evening a la famille 1950's style go to La Borie

We found this place by accident and had one of our most faboulous meals in the nice family farm.

Even though they speak little english, Valerie and her mother were very nice. We sat outside and enjoyed the great weather, while we ordered three four course meals, built in a set menu.

After a great bean soup we ate the famous foue gras and patte, and then a tasty beef steak made with garlic and a sidedish of potatoes.

To desert we had apricot cake with cream cheese and honey. The meal
Was french style easy going though we did not wait a minute too much.

After drinks the checks reached a bit less than 70 euros, a fine price for this kind of meal, and VAle automatically wrapped up the cake we left in a take away and that was really nice of her.

Im not a food lover but this time i totaly enjoyed it, not only because of the food but also for the hospitality and the place itself.

Go there.

Loved the setting, a real homely feeling! We got served our menu sitting at a table with 2 other couples, but it wasn't annoying but actually complimentary! Food was great, service aswell and together with a great bottle of wine paid 64 euro's. An evening we won't forget!

La Borie Blanche was recommended to my family by a friend (thanks Will) as a no nonsense old school French eatery that was an experience not to be missed. As it turned out our friend was right!

The previous evening three generations of my family had dined in an expensive and sophisticated restaurant where the service was excellent, and the food beautifully presented but sadly lacking in the taste and flavour department......my faith in French cuisine faltered!

Following lunch at La Borie Blanche all my family agreed that this was the best dining experience we had enjoyed while in France. This place provides diners with classic simple French cooking made with excellent local ingredients served in pleasant surroundings by the friendly proprietors............Faith restored!

Can't wait to return.
