Got married in July, just the 6 of us. This place is truly special, delicious meal, beautifully presented. Staff were very friendly and helpful especially with our lack of French! Set by the river, we had little ducklings jumping on and off lily pads next to us. My mother in law had arranged a chocolate gateau which was out of... More

Always a good meal of very high quality. The chef often blends tastes that I have not tried before and up to now I have been pleasantly surprised at how well they work. I did feel this year that the portions were a little mean but the amuse bouche ensure you never leave hungry. The staff are delightful and the... More

I stated in my previous review of this establishment that we were given wet wipes and empty crab claw...This should have read; A bowl of water with a slice of lemon in it and an empty piece of lobster claw. Apollogies !!

We were recommended to try this restaurant - and am so glad we did. The food was all perfectly cooked and presented. There were some very interesting and innovative combinations. I will definitely revisit this restaurant the next time am in the area.

Dining out on the terrace, beside the river, doused in warm dappled sunshine under the willow trees, and then being served quality food and wine, to tease and tingle your palate! . A very warm friendly professional service, quality food colourfully presented on the plate with a wine list to match. We retired to the dining room for cheese and... More

The person that invented the concept of the restaurant with rooms deserves a medal. This Auberge in the small hamlet of Velluire near to Fontenay le Comte is perfect example of the genre. We have eaten here twice before when on holiday in the vicinity but when we needed to break our journey from the Dordogne to the Roscoff ferry... More

Great location by the river in Velluire. Good range of well cooked meals. Watch your wallet/purse as it is a little on the expensive side.

This is our fourth visit here and yet again the food and quality of service was excellent. We had the Meal of the Day which came with some very tasty surprises. The standard of service and attention to detail is extremely high. The food and presentation were excellent. We took some friends who were taken aback by the place.

This is the third time that we have been here. I cannot recommend it highly enough, the food is superb and incredible value for money. This visit was during a lunchtime and we opted for the lowest cost menu, the Regional Menu, at €30.00 Euros per head. It offers almost two hours of incredible food, the presentation of which is...
