“Some reservations...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2013

This is quite a smart looking restaurant in the interior (so it was a good job that we were all dressed smartly) but which shows signs of shabbiness elsewhere!!! I also didn't like the way we were treated when we arrived as the weather had turned a little cold and we were obliged to sit outside at the edge of a canopy which provided no protection from the wind so we asked to move indoors and were made to feel that this request was an imposition despite there being no one in there and only two other covers arrived a little while later. The waiter was fine but we found the waitress rather offhand as a result of our move inside. There was a wonderful pianist playing a delightful repertoire of classical pieces throughout almost our entire stay under the canopy and whilst it was most agreeable to begin with the amplified sound did rather penetrate by the end of the meal. The starters were disappointing for all of us (they sounded fine by their descriptions), but the mains were very good and were enormous portions. My wife and I had rabbit and cabbage (a local dish) which was delicious and one daughter had cassoulet; the waiter presented enormous dishes on a trolley from which we helped ourselves. There was so much of it that we asked if we could take the remainder home and the waiter gave us a couple of ice-cream tubs to contain it. The other two in our group had tuna which came with various additions which they really enjoyed. We were all too full for a dessert.

I wouldn't want to put anyone off going but there are better places in Cordes to choose from if you have only a short stay in mind.

“Really authentic French cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2013

There was a large group of us - perhaps forty or so - and everyone had a simply wonderful meal! Cordes sur cielmay be slightly off the beaten track for mainstream tourists but anyone who wants to visit some of the French bastide towns will want to include this beautiful medieval walled town perched high on a hill so it seems to be floating in the sky . And there i the most amazing museum to chocolate and sugar there - every single exhibit ( paintings, tableaux, sculptures are ALL made of sugar and/or chocolate.
The hotel is just on the edge of town on the way out but well within walking distance of the centre.
We had the set menu , the main course was a rabbit casserole with cabbage. I'm not great on cabbage but whatever combination of sauces were used - it was melt in the mouth delicious.
Service was very efficient, the furniture and decor smacked of old world gentility, certificates and awards papered the walls. A wonderful meal, in a wonderful town, with wonderful company.
I want to go back to Cordes and next time I will stay in the Hostelerie!
