Our party of 6 enjoyed a truly wonderful lunch at this superb restaurant. The lunch menu offers very good value. It was a 'set menu'. The presentation and service was exemplary. The Chef has excellent taste. He knows his food and flavours. If we lived nearer, we would dine here regularly. Thank you for your service.

This is a classical Languedoc star-restaurant...not more, not less. Impecciable, but not innovative. A good choice for american and british hipsters. Not the thing for distiguished middle-European Gourmets.

Wonderful experience, with a very warm family feeling - if one's family includes a brilliant chef! We had shrimp, then fish, then pigeon, each expertly prepared and presented. 2011 Chateau du Donjon went well with everything. The dessert .. well, the picture shows it all - true artistry. While the service was a bit slow, and there were not many... More

We've been trying some great restaurants in the area and decided to give this a try as we are currently waiting for our new kitchen to be fitted. We tried the 64€ menu and were not disappointed. The service was attentive and the evening relaxing. Definitely make this a priority for a special night out. Thank you!!

Surprisingly empty, only 5 covers on a Thursday evening. Fine dining at appropriate prices but some cheaper fixed price menus. Perhaps it is easier to get a star in France than England as it didn't meet the attentiveness usually associated with the star. The staff were very good and the food well presented. Would try it again if in the... More

Doesn't look much from the road but the food and service is great, as you'd hope for a Michelin starred restaurant. If weather is good eat on the terrace but indoors is fine. Not cheap but won't seem expensive to anyone who regularly goes to good restaurants. Helps if you can speak French but some English spoken. Restaurant is just... More

Being vegetarian, the chef was very obliging and made me some excellent vegetarian dishes. He also made some excellent special meals for my teenagers. Sat outside on terrace in very pleasant surroundings. This resto was quite a find in Pezens, which is a tiny town with not much in it.

A beautiful restaurant for that special occasion. This is top of the range dining. The food is amazing and the staff have the expert knowledge of wines to enable them to suggest what will best accompany what ever dish you have chosen. A bit expensive for normal folk like me but I took my Husband there for his 65th Birthday... More

Truly interesting food prepared by an inspired chef. None of the de luxe flummery of some Michelin starred restaurants - instead, a comfortable ambience and good value for the quality of the food. You need 2 to 3 hours, but why rush when there is such a good experience to be had?
