We had lunch on a sunny September weekday, sitting on the terrace with a lovely view of the garden and the chateau across the river. The €67 menu was all fantastic food, beautifully presented. From the delicate chilled pea soup, through to the raspberry verbena dessert, every mouthful was a joy. Service was impeccable and not intrusive, and the meal... More

We had a set dinner at 67 euros. Very nice place, very good food, nice ambience with a lovely view on the river. I would go there again, I think 6 course dinner at this price was a good value for money. We had some local wine, recommended by the waiter. All in all it was very nice experience all... More

A surprisingly quirky restaurant in a beautiful setting. The food I had was very rich and sumptuous. I'd say it was for those who enjoy playful interaction of tastes and textures.

We went here several times a few years ago and were keen to return, being in the area. It is a beautiful situation on the river and the restaurant itself is really unusual in design. It isn't shabby yet but I hope they are thinking of updating it sooner or later to keep it fresh. As it is nothing has... More

Lovely setting but had to dine indoors as weather wasn't great. Disappointed in both the menu and the service. The wine waiter was the most attentive and as no-one else came near us he had to clear away our plates eventually. Style over substance I thought.

The setting is magnificent and the food matched it. Especially the cheeseboard. Staff were helpful and attentive without being intrusive. Beautiful fine dining with little flower petals adding to the artistic quality

1st Class restaurant. Lovely setting. In restaurant everything is white without the feeling that it's sterile. Attentif staff. Food was a joy, but my expectations were higher, having eaten in other Star restaurants. I noticed in 2 years time the same menu was still on their website, which made me decide to go somewhere else. (Been a few years that... More

This was one of the best meals I have ever had in France. The setting on the Charente River, the view to the chateau, the menu comprising delicious dishes made using the freshest ingredients, reasonably-priced winelist, knowledgeable and charming staff (speaking English if required) and lovely décor (not one orange rag rolled wall in sight). Pure class. Very relaxing and... More
