I was attracted by the restaurant location: On top of a hill over the Agout river canyon... But about the various food critics I read. So here we go and let's try it. I took the opportunity of a common birthday celebration with a friend...More

We ate lunch as a family, and barely being able to communicate with the staff due to the language barrier, we went with the chef's suggestion and had veal with potato wedges and vegetables. The meal was excellent, particularly the vegetables and mushrooms, which were...More

Good choice of three dishes on each course on the lunch menu. Fish soup was excellent, not too salty (a common error), mains of gratin de poisson were perfectly cooked, fish still firm, sauce not too creamy. House white wine very palatable. Good coffee too.More

We have eaten at this restaurant many times over 20 years, under various managements. The current one, relatively new, seems a disaster. The front of house staff were disorganized, inattentive and unprofessional. We sat at the table for an HOUR before any food arrived, apart...More

This is one of the best restaurants we have experienced in this region. The food is fresh, creative and very good. The atmosphere is a beautiful view of the river valley. We will definitely return.

L'Echauguette, restaurant panoramique, surplombe la vallee de l'Agout, au coeur d'un beau village de potiers. J'essaie d'offrir a mes clients une cuisine simple et genereuse, en m'appuyant, notamment, sur des producteurs locaux, des produits frais, ceci a des prix que je veux garder abordables. Il est prudent de reserver
