Idyllic riverside restaurant in picture-postcard village, handy for the Marcillac vineyards, and half an hour out of Rodez. Cooking based on local terroir, but with heaps of added sophistication. Outstanding local wine list. Seven recently refurbished rooms available in a separate building just over the hump-backed bridge.
