Have visited for most of the last 10 summers and did so once again this year. Format the same but owners changed. Now set menu but wine not included. Pleasant enough but lacking the character it had with previous owners. Food generally fine but seemed...More

Found this restaurant by accident having a stroll through Cahors. Great location, adjacent to the river and - at least from outside- good view of a fast flowing weir. Attracted by the formule which suggested three courses for 15 Euros, we thought we'd give it...More
