“Better!”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

The old owner has left and he's taken the stuffy atmosphere with him. We always enjoyed the food and the beautiful dining room, but it always felt a bit too formal. Now we can relax, the food is improved and the service is just as good. The amuse bouche was particularly naff, but other than that the menu was really delicious. Bon bons of foie gras wrapped in bacon were inventive and very tasty, if a little over powered by the taste of smoked bacon.

And the magret in a sweet bread crust (not sweetbreads) was delicious if a tiny bit over cooked despite asking for it very pink.

Enjoyable meal, we'll return.

“Well worth the visit”
Reviewed 18 July 2013

It had been some time since we had visited La Jarrerie and having heard that it had changed ownership, decided to put it to the test, we were not disappointed and in fact have now been twice in the space of one week. The first occasion was for a Sunday lunch, where we both opted for the € 35 menu, which has a good range of choices, includes 4 courses i.e. with a very good cheeseboard included and a refreshing complimentary sorbet between starter and main course, which added to the enjoyment. Everything was well prepared and cooked with skill and good flavour, whilst the service was attentive and professional with no gimmicks. We enjoyed sitting out on the extensive terrace and were pleased to be told that all of the original kitchen crew, from the chef down, were still in place, which was evidenced by the excellent meal we had enjoyed.

In fact we enjoyed it so much that today we went back again to try the € 18 Formule consisting of entree/plat or plat/dessert and included a complimentary glass of wine, which was excellent value since all the dishes could be selected from the €.35 menu, with no compromise on portion sizes. All in all two very enjoyable meals in pleasant surroundings and for a very reasonable price, highly recommended and streets ahead of its rival the l'Ecole des Filles up the road, in every respect. We will definately visit La Jarrerie again.

It still has a special feel and the magical atmosphere.That's why we chose to go there to celebrate my daughters 16th birthday.
The menu has changed by they have kept and modified some the the restaurants classic dishes. It's a still a great place to eat and the prices are correct.

“Lovely restaurant”
Reviewed 5 July 2013

We enjoyed two dinners at this restaurant while staying in the area. Both times we were ver pleased by the service and quality of food. Presentation is elegant. Joel served us both visits and between his English and our French we did just fine. He was very personable and made great recommendations. We ate outside both visits but the inside would be terrific, too. I'm still thinking about the foie gras wrapped in bacon which just melted in my mouth and the lovely rose wine. Highly recommend this place!

“OK - but not amazing”
Reviewed 2 July 2013

We enjoyed two evening meals here, partly because there was not much choice in Le Bar Sur Loup as some of the other restaurants in the village were closed on those nights. We found the service on one of the nights, when they were a bit busier was slow. They do have an English menu - so make sure you ask, as they don't readily offer it to you! The menu has a good selection and we found the food tasty.
