If you had to choose one place to eat in the region, this is it. Annie and Sébastien Reumeux (the chef) are from far-north French Flanders and they came south a couple of years back to revitalise this well-known little restaurant (once a Michelin-star) and restore the cooking to its former excellence. Wonderful hare terrine with red onion jam, a perfect risotto with ecrevisses and medallions of rump of lamb with tarragon and Grand Valrhona chocolate cream with warm madeleines (beloved of Proust) were highlights of my last couple of meals here. Excellent mainly Pierre Ferraud wine list, Annie the most charming of hostesses. Terrific value. Go.
