I had escargot and superb fillet steak and my wife the set menu @ €25 - escargot (12), a really excellent fish dish, cheese and sweet. The best value meal we have had so far during 7 weeks in France this year. Highly recommended.

The restaurant is good and dishes are simple but well presented. Is a strange dinner room, it looks like a vintage style. The waiter is so serious as to instill fear, but fortunately he's very good, although a bit slow. The price is a bit high compared to other restaurants but it's worth it. Negative point: cold red wine is not even found in the worst bar in Caracas.

I can highly recommend Le Relais du Canalou for the regional dishes offered in the menu. The escargots are fantastic!
The chef and the staff are really nice and will do their best to meet your requirements even for private events. If you visit or if you simply live in the region you should definitely enjoy a meal there!

We showed up at 1:25 PM, it seems that in Digoin it is not a good idea to be hungry after 1:30 but even those five minutes were not enough for good service. The provincial waitress made us feel that since it was close to her rest time we had to go with that day's unappetizing specials. We stood up against her sad scheme and got the dishes we wanted.

The food was tasty, nothing exceptional though but they make a good job with escargots and gougères. Our un-cozy waitress even gratified us with a tense smile or two. The place was not particularly cheap. The wine was OK, coffee drinkable.

Not a must.

Meal was good - though mega expensive - spoilt but a surly waiter who obviously had better things to do than his job.
