“Great original rustic food”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

We dined here last Sunday having read good Trip Advisor reviews and weren't disappointed. The food in both volume and quality could not be faulted. We had the €30 menu which started with a help yourself buffet of home produced cured sausages, hams, pâté, and salads. A word of warning - do not overfill your plate as you will not be able to fully enjoy the copious number of courses to come. After the buffet came the 3 ways foie gras - absolutely delicious! A lemon sorbet laced with vodka acted as pallet cleanser before the main course, of Catalan meat balls for me and chicken with morels for my wife. Cheese and red pepper sauce arrived before a sumptuous pudding. All in all, a great dining experience.

If you are in the region, it's well worth a visit!! We've made a booking for a return visit next Sunday with our family and friends.

“Just the perfect experience of food of the area.”
Reviewed 20 May 2013 via mobile

On a cold May Day we were welcomed to a lovely farm house with a roaring log fire. Having been warned that the food was plentiful we missed breakfast. Our meal especially the foirgras course served three ways, the main was a beef casserole with lots of red wine, was delicious Not fine dining but a great meal good local wines and a fantastic experience

“Paradise for lovers of foie gras and regional cuisine”
Reviewed 21 October 2012

Rustic location via rough road. Shop on site selling home produce items of excellent quality and delicious taste.

Service was excellent and attentive. Waiter was very cheerful and despite being very busy, kept smiling. 28 euros menu is excellent value and the foie gras divine. Watch out for the vodka sorbet - it is potent.

Ideal venue for group of friends.

Regional wines are reasonably priced and of good quality.

“Quantity does not replace quality”
Reviewed 20 June 2012

The quality overall was not bad, although a bit up and down. The quantity however was rather off putting.

Maybe if I were a farmer, after a long, hard day, dinner would seem so much better. But, I’m not. The vast platefuls therefore detracted from the experience sadly. Which is a shame, as the staff did try hard.

Pick and choose your courses carefully, go easy on the amount you eat and there is a perfectly decent, if not top draw, regional eating experience to be had.
