We visited Le Saint-Jacques on a warm summer evening, and being Scandinavians we were the first guests at the restaurant at 19:00. We were received kindly by the personnel, and were asked for an aperitif which we ordered. Only five minutes after having the aperitifs, the first dish was served, creating a bit of stress on us, and this was... More

I have eaten here a few times over the past 2 years and the lunches are a bargain at comparable prices to the surrounding restaurants but with substantially higher quality food. The service is impeccable and the preparation and presentation of the food is outstanding. Dinner menu prices are a little high but totally worth it.

Over the last five years I have been visiting this restaurant occasionally. So I did last weekend. This time disappointed. I think it is a bit strange to have a supplement price of 10 euros for one of the starters in a gourmand menu of 35 euro. In this case the Foie gras starter. Three small square pieces of Foi...

Surprisingly sophisticated & very cheap set lunch menu. 20E is a complete bargain for fine dining. Classy linen, light airy room & decent bathrooms as well. A la carte available but stick to menu du jour & you will not be disappointed. Argentat lovely in itself, but worth the trip just to have lunch.

This restaurant is a must if you are around Argentat! The sunny terrace behind the simple street appearance is a delight. The food were delicious, the adjective doesn't pay justice though. It was well thought, well performed and well presented, a perfect piece of music. The staff are welcoming and the service was impeccable. Do recommend!

We had dinner here with another couple, food was beautifully presented and very tasty. The wine list was very good. As we were there in January we had the restaurant to ourselves and we were not rushed at all. Would highly recommend for couples. Be prepared to spend a little extra.. As it is fine dining.

We had forgotten quite how good is the Saint Jacques: We ate in here on a quiet weekday and had the €20 set four course meal which was spectacularly good and beautifully presented. The range of wines is, as you'd expect, excellent and runs from the very reasonable to the absurd. There really is nothing to fault about the Saint... More

We had lunch here with the family. We chose the E35 fixed menu which was superb. Some of our party were more than half an hour late but this did not phase the staff. Our friend wanted a simple green salad as a starter - no problem. She then wanted a starter dish as her main course - again they... More

and not just any old bistro, no, just one of the best. Chef Patrick is an artist, literally, see his spun sugar art. Once I mentioned to Floran that it was my wife's birthday...Patric spun her a rose! His kitchen is top, literally as good as it gets. Every taste is delicious until delicious just doesn't describe it anymore. Thank... More
