noticed this restaurant wandering around parthenay it looked quite ok. we were the only customers and the owner seemed to also be the waiter and chef he was pleasant enough but the food let the place down. dry and shrivelled up snails and a steak which was a rather tough and chewy. service was fine.

Found this by pure chance while driving around the town of Parthenay through the winding back streets. In reality it is only just off the main square.

Just returned from France after visiting family and attended La Tambouillie for lunch, the service was great and the food was very very good, all our party chose the steak and all were very pleased with the fact it was cooked exactly how we requested. A lovely little place with a great atmosphere - would definitely recommend.
