“Outstanding memorable restaraunt”
Reviewed 20 September 2012

This is one of the most wonderful dining experiences I've ever had, and I get around.... I am lucky enough to have been a few times, and was pleased that he menu changes regularly, depending on fresh seasonal foods, and the dishes are unique and incredibly creative. The presentation is magnificent and the wait staff plentiful and always there when you want them to be. This chef has but one Michelin star, and in my opinion she should have three. There are many lovely in-betweeners and an exceptional wine list as well. No wonder people come from all over France and further to sit at the table of this great chef! It is important to book well in advance because they book one seating and the place is not large.

“A Jewel in the Averyon”
Reviewed 8 June 2012

One of the most beautiful of the most beautiful villages in France. A delightful seven room auberge owned by the restaurant. And across a medieval stone bridge a gastronomic treat, Le Vieux Pont. This one star Michelin (1991) restaurant is operated by chef/owner Nicole Fagegaltier whose mother owned the restaurant before her. (Nicole has co-authored a beautiful cookbook "Un Gout d'Averyon" with regional recipes and beautiful photographs in French). Our two dinners were wonderful experiences: excellently prepared cuisine with a local flair, excellent wine list, again with local vintages, professional yet warm service all set in this fairy-tale setting. We love the Averyon region of France and Le Vieux Pont is one of the jewels in the crown.

“The best one star restaurant we've ever been to!”
Reviewed 2 September 2011

We have been to Le Vieux Pont numerous times over the past ten years and have never been disappointed; in fact we're normally delighted.
The setting is superb, just opposite a charming & very old bridge over the Aveyron in the beautiful village if Belcastel. The dining room is elegant in an understated way.
The staff are charming, well trained and very attentive. Service is fully up to starred restaurant standards.
The food is excellent with a stress on quality local ingredients. The menu changes several times a year so as to highlight what's seasonal. We've had so many great meals here that its impossible to single out any particular one.
A few years ago we did an experiment. We went to a 3 star restaurant for lunch one day then we to Le Vieux Pont the next day for lunch. Vieux Pont was easily the better of the two!
