In summer, both lunch and dinner are served on the terrace, which is gorgeous. It is well worth being guided by the Maitre D as to the local wines that are extremely good. The food alone is worth a trip to the chateau

Excellently situated this terrace restaurant is a great place to eat, way out of the hussle and bussle of a busy town. Food is excellent and will certainly return there next summer. The actual restaurant is authentic and also a lovely place to eat.
