The truffled egg is amazing, worth a journey. We had lunch and dinner. All dishes were superb and the service was very polished.

This was an amazing meal. There were four of us and some ordered a la carte and others took the 'prix fix' menu. Each dish was highly refined with very subtle taste. The truffled egg was amazing. Somehow they manage to talk the yolk out of a hard boiled egg and replace it with an extremely tasty truffle sauce. Amazing.... More

Yes its pricey but what an amazing meal. We chose the menu garriques ( ?) consisting of 6 or 7 small perfectly cooked dishes including courses containing lobster sorbet and goats cheese ice cream . Beautiful fish and meat dishes and the cheeses are to die for. The sommelier chose an excellent local wine at a reasonable price . Staff... More

This was an exceptional experience. Service on highest level and still creating a relaxed atmosphere. And the food a surprise from course to course. Certainly, worthwhile a trip.

Well the desert wine I loved, so splelling may be poor. Staff a little uptight to start with but once realised not from 'the guide' relaxed. Theatre and food definitely a 'bucket list' restaurant. Cheers!!

This is the epitome of what a 3 star restaurant should be. The food is divine, the wait staff both efficient and charming and the dining room is both comfortable and a visual delight. There are no pretensions here...just superb food. We went for lunch and it was well worth the trek to this remote part of the Corbieres region.... More

Our visit was a "significant birthday" treat...we try to eat in Michelin star restaurants whenever we can, but always the lunch or early-bird, as frankly, we're not super-wealthy. On this occasion we pushed the boat out and went for the full experience, including matching wines! We went for the menu which contains the restaurant's signature dishes...I'm not going to describe... More

If you travel through Fontjoncourse, and drive past this restaurant, don't feel badly. It is understated unless you know what you are looking for. Once you find it, you'll be richly rewarded. The food is both flavor and art. The service is theatrical and friendly. Goujon and Mde Goujon both visit the table to chat, if your French can handle... More

Having been fortunate to visit both places with the space of 4 days, here is my take on their respective merits, covering both the hotel and restaurant. Setting: the endless expanses of the Aubrac plateau vs the rugged terrain of the Corbieres. Views at Bras are mesmerizing wherever you are in the place. Goujon is not as dramatic but you... More
