The owner of this comfortable and old fashioned family run hotel and restaurant is also the chef. It reminds me of French restaurants 20 years ago. Very much a local restaurant with both bar and restaurant usually full of locals who recognise good value. The food is delicious, reasonable and you won’t leave hungry. Make sure that you leave room for the sweet trolley which is packed with home-made tarts, mousses and all the traditional sweets – you are expected to ask for several! The wine list features a good selection of local growers, especially from Saint Joseph and at very reasonable prices.

Useful information: Menus: €17-€45. Closed Sunday and Monday evenings and all day Tuesday. Closed during February school holidays and the first three weeks in August.
