We were the only guests having lunch today in Le Petit Relais and we can't really understand why. We had two dishes of the menu of the day: salad with melon and local ham and an excellent steak with a cognac and pepper sauce and home made chips.

Our waitress was charmingly friendly and a bit shy. The only upset was caused by a receptionist who had to stop doing her make up to print our bill and clearly would have preferred finishing her make up job instead.

Nevertheless a very enjoyable lunch on a nicely situated terrace.

Hello Madam, Sir,

We thank you for your comment and are glad that you had lunch on our terrace and that you enjoyed your menus.
In the office, it was not a receptionist at all, nor a member of Petit Relay's staff, but simply my 17-year-old daughter who agreed to help the staff members make your bill.

I wish you a pleasant day and thank you again for your visit.

Best regards.

Karine Loeuillet (la gérante)

We visited on recommendation and found top quality food in elegant and tasteful surroundings. Le Petit Relais is located in the centre of quiet Cales, and has both indoor and seating.
Two fixed price and à la carte menus are offered. We choose the cheaper €29.50 Marche menu, which offers a limited choice of entrée and main, and choice of dessert from the á la carte menu. The food was excellent, superbly presented, and absolutely delicious, with wonderful combinations of flavours and textures. The wine list is fairly extensive with lots of local choices.
Service was attentive, but always discreet. Given the quality of food, service and surroundings, the meal was excellent value. Highly recommended.

Another fantastic meal on a family visit to Cales. Lamb, trout and parmentier d’agneau confit were all delicious and our desserts were exquisite. We love this restaurant and look forward to our next visit.

My wife and I cycled past Le Petit Relais a couple of days prior to our lunch visit, so we knew where it was and what it looked like.

We arrived at 12:30 to find only a couple of people dining so the restaurant was more or less empty - normally a bad sign!

We were given a seat by the window and served in French (our choice of language)

We opted for the Menu de Terroir which was 35 Euros for 3 courses and a couple of glasses of wine to accompany it.

All our dishes were served quickly and hot where appropriate. They were all extremely well presented and very tasty.

My only critique was the time between courses - we would have liked a little more time (it's normally the opposite) and felt it was a bit rushed!

Other than that, everything else was perfect and we will definitely return

Located in a pretty village en route to Rocamadour. Good local cuisine and a sunny terrace in a quiet location.
