Having read the various reviews of "La Corniche" and living quite close to Brousses, we visited yesterday evening for a family dinner. I had made a reservation for 19.30 and arrived at 19.20 and were greeted and shown to a very good table with a beautiful view of the valley and river. There only one other table occupied at that time. We were promptly given menus and requested aperitif drinks which arrived within 5 minutes. The menu is fairly small but would cover most tastes but we were also offered the "days menu". We started with an delicious mushroom sauce followed by various choices. Each course was of excellent quality and the main course cooked perfectly (I had steak which was tender and pink). Overall, a great night out and the only reason I have not given 5 stars is due to the long time between courses. We left at nearly 23.00 and many people would consider 3.5 hours to be on the length side! Personally, given the quality of the food and the views it didn't bother me but I can see that some people would be a little frustrated. This is obviously a reflection of the fact that the owner works on his own doing all the serving and cooking. He should probably consider hiring some help at the tables. However, a great night out.

We've eaten here once or twice during our stay in the area, over the past four years as a treat to those new to the area. The patron is chef and waiter with one assistant in the kitchen. He said he grew up in the house and has converted it into this gem of a restaurant which seats only about 23 folks. Reservations are a must. Everything, at least for now, is made home-made, except as he notes, the ice creams are made by a neighbor. In warmer weather, you dine on the terrace with a sweeping, post-card perfect view of the valley and the Averyon River below. If you've got an issue with heights, stay away. In the cooler months you are inside in the dining room. The cooking is mainly derivations of French classics with 3 or 4 choices for entree and plat and about 6 choices for dessert. There is his choice of soup as a starter and an "amuse" before the soup. This summer, gaspacho was the soup in the fall it was a vegetable soup. Entrees were sweetbreads, escargots in cream, salmon tartare and fois gras and cured meats. Plats were roast lamb, pork roast, duck and a fish. It's a seasonal menu. This is for special occasions or a treat, but well worth the cost. This summer the fixed menu was €30 with wine and coffee extra.

After promising ourselves a meal here for many years we finally made it on our last night in the region. One sitting at 7.30pm overlooking the spectacular valley. Excellent food, a gazpacho soup to start, chose lamb and then great selection of deserts. Half a bottle of local red and a bill for 78€ for 2. Only concern was the length of time between courses but as all food appeared to be freshly prepared and time wasn't a concern we were able to ignore this. Friendly and amenable host.

We and our fellow diners have eaten here many times: as couples; with young children; and most recently as a party of six celebrating a special birthday. It was a great choice for a special meal the location is fabulous and the food was excellent. I note that there are a few unfavourable comments below but this has never been our experience, the standards of service and food have been always been consistently excellent.

Great romantic setting for couples. Great authentic food. Brilliant view over the gorge. Drive downhill away from the corniche on the way home.
