A lovely restaurant with excellent food. Overall enjoyable evening. We were travelling from England to south Spain. This was our only evening meal stop. The service was excellent and the food was served in good time. The atmosphere was lovely even though the restaurant was full it was not loud.

Food was OK but nothing special, service could be improved a lot !!!! Probably wouldn't bother to go back. Took my daughter for a birthday treat and was bitterly disappointed.

On first arrival at 19.30 the restaurant was empty and the staff appeared surprised that we hadn't booked, the chef however said they could make a table available for us . . . Within ten minutes the restaurant was full and every table filled, this tells you something when the restaurant is all alone in a tiny village. 100 Euros... More

When visiting family in this quiet, rural area of France we always go to this restaurant for lunch. It always serves well prepared, interesting local food, and is always busy with locals, which tells it's own story! You cannot go wrong with the 'plat du jour' at €17 for three delicious courses inclusive of bread, water and wine!

This is a quality restaurant run by a chef who knows what he is doing in the charming town of Auros. Located on the main street, it has attractive stone walls and three different dining rooms. One room has an open fire which is lit in winter, another with a bay window overlooking the street and the third on a... More
