Nothing to complain about but equally nothing to rave about. However the meal was fine with one or two nice touches. The service was good and welcoming. A nice atmosphere in the summer.

Wonderful restaurant. Modern international cuisine served with French flair and exceptionally friendly staff. Can't speak too highly of it. We are staying in the village and this goes down as a highlight of our stay.

This was a little gem of a place and the terrace was beautiful. The staff were so friendly and very patient with our petit peu français!! The food was delicious and very reasonable. Do yourself a favour and have the crème bruleé its to die for!

Our first meal was on a Sunday where we enjoyed a menu which was delicious even though we could.t manage to finish it. Great atmosphere and wonderful service. The place was full and I have no idea how the two ladies managed so well. We returned during the week and enjoyed their menu du midi just as much three courses... More

This is a welcoming local restaurant which always serves great food. It is particularly cosy in the winter. We have eaten here regularly for the last couple of years, and enjoyed everything we have tried from the menu. The lunchtime menu is amazing value. And the puddings are spectacular!

Had a lovely meal in this restaurant last week. We were staying in La Roche Chalais, and as our guesthouse didn't do evening meals, we wandered the 1/2 minute walk to this place. Had a very good meal, with a nice bottle of wine, all served in a friendly and professional manner, and all at a very affordable price.

It was a Tuesday eve, everywhere seemed to be closed. We phoned Le Bontemps and were greeted by a friendly voice who reserved us a table for 7. I have passed this restaurant many times before and it doesn't look very inviting from the outside but once through the doors, it is clean fresh and very inviting. Excellent service even... More

Hello friends, La Roche Chalais is a small twon in south Charente, just close to the north border of the Dordogne, and, contrary to Game of Thrines, there is not a big icy wall between the two!
