This is an ideal stop for lunch before or after visiting Francois Villard. It is in the middle of the village high up overlooking the Rhône. The drive up to the village is spectacular and passes Château Grillet on the way. The restaurant is on the first floor (you walk up external steps) and has a panoramic view. It is a village restaurant much used by locals and the food is good if simple. They were catering for the village New Year’s Eve dinner in the village hall during my recent visit.

Useful information: Menus: €17-€26. Closed Mondays and Tuesdays plus three weeks in February and two weeks in September.
