We were staying in Chateau De La Cazine but chose to dine in the village of La Soutteraine for more atmosphere. Having read the reviews on Trip Advisor we decided to eat here. The welcome we received was like that from an old friend, warm and genuine. This, in addition to the charming surroundings really started the holiday for us as we'd had a day of travel and we were finally made to relax. Despite staying in a wonderful chateau this restaurant is the most fond memory of our stay in this area. The food was amazing, so much so that we dined here the both nightes of our stay. The staff were fantastic, taking the time to have a friendly chat, explain the dishes, and have a giggle with my other half over her getting all the fantastic wine as I had to drive back to the hotel! We generally don't visit the same areas more than once on holiday unless something stands out for us, but this restaurant alone would bring us back. It's a rare combination to get a beautiful restaurant, fantastic food, value for money, and a warm, genuine and efficient service, but here it is.
Looking forward to returning!!

We have been here a couple of occations whilst on hoilday,the staff are excellent and the service is good. The tables in the courtyard are the best if the sun is shining as the inside area is a little dark.The plat du jour is excellent value and generally go at this time.The salade starter isa help yourself as it plentiful. Well recommended on the basis of our two visits.

We eat regularly at this restaurant, about four times a year, and are never really disappointed. Sometimes the 'Menus' have not changed much from our previous visit but there is always enough difference to satisfy. On the very odd occasion that the Menus do not appeal, there is always the 'carte'. The Menus range from the Menu du Jour at 12.5€, an interesting three course at 18€ to the five course degustation at 35€. The fare is typically French, with local produce & recipes often taking centre stage but occasionally surprising dishes such as this week's choice, Queue de lotte au curry, which almost tempted me. But this time we ate from the carte with a huge 400gr Entrecôte with a blue cheese sauce (doggy bag provided) & my personal favourite, Steak Tartare, prepared with care and skill at the table.
The Patron & his staff can never do enough to make sure that your visit will be memorable, in a good way of course. They are always attentive, without being in your face or hovering and arrive at the table when they are required and only then. We are happy enough to take friends and visitors to eat there, without any fear that they will be disappointed. In the summer, the terrace serves as a perfect place to eat and drink.
I must recommend this restaurant most highly, it is not Michelin starred, but offers a very high standard for a very reasonable price. It will be a favourite of ours for many years to come.

Lovely food served in a secluded terrace at the back of the hotel. Friendly and helpful staff. Local cuisine, reasonably priced. We ate there twice in three days, it was that good.
