Our host recommended this restaurant to us, and we were very pleased with her recommendation. Easy to find, and with seating inside or outside. We chose inside as outside can get 'fresh' after 9pm. We were greeted with a smile and friendly welcome; water, olives and hors d'oeuvres were brought to our table. We chose the 23€ menu, which gave... More

Do not judge this book by its cover! And take your time to peek inside. The food is an above average version of what the region has to offer, at a great price.

We went there after a visit to the Roquefort caves. The lunch was good with first quality local products and I enjoyed it but the very limited personnel made it that we waited an hour and a half for our food andvthatbis unbearable. They have to manage better.

This is cozy village restaurant serves surprisingly high-end traditional French cooking. The 22-euro lunch menu was a sumptuous 5-course feast, balanced, well-paced, and elegantly served. Our bottle of local Marcillac red wine (also just 22 euros) was a perfect accompaniment. Sharp and creamy Roquefort cheese from the nearby Roquefort caves appeared in several dishes. The seafood ravioli are especially good.... More

Came to Tournemire for the Brocante market to celebrate July 14 and discovered this restaurant next door to the Mairie. Arriving early for lunch we had choice of table on the terrace - the setting was so quintessentially country French. We ordered the 22 euros menu which far exceeded expectation with Roquefort featuring in several dishes including the carpaccio of... More

Charming auberge with amusing parrot chatter as well as warm welcome from owner. Sunday lunch was excellent value with delicious dishes with tastes of Roquefort in several. It was too hot to eat on the terrace so we ate in the characterful dining room. Excellent longe de thon; creme brule was perfect.

This small town restaurant is in Tournamire, just a couple of kilometres from the cheese town of Roquefort which naturally features heavily on the menu. The restaurant is surprisingly large, has some impressive architectural features such as a large carved plaster ceiling but overall give the impression of comfortable country restaurant which has grown up over the years rather than...
