This is something completely different. It is the regional training centre for chefs, kitchen staff, waiters and wine waiters - one of the most famous in France. It is situated one kilometre from the centre of Tain on the way to the motorway. As part of their training the students run two restaurants on site. In addition they do regular themed evenings ('Cuisine du Sud', 'Cuisine du Monde' etc.) for €38 including aperitif, wine, meal and coffee. You can even look at all the menus on the website before booking.

Useful information: Restaurant l'Hermitage: lunch (Monday-Friday) €22; evenings (Thursdays) €22.50. Restaurant Les Bessards: lunch (Monday-Friday) €13; evenings (Tuesday and Thursdays) €27. Both restaurants only open during college term times.
