This is a very local and was our favourite restaurant fpr special occasions. But the quality varies, some times its great and others it's aweful. So much so we can't go just in case we get another bad experience.

This restaurant is beautifully set on the Charente river and is easily reached from the nearby major mooring area. Its reputation is for quality beef and our party was not disappointed in this regard. English beer is available, though I'm unsure if it suits the local climate.

Having been driving round, visiting Angeloumes and Saint Simon, and not having found anywhere to eat, we resorted to Google Maps 'Find me a restaurant' feature and it came up with this place. Alongside the river, with a sizeable terrace it looked ideal! The menu is not too big but has choices for everyone. The place is run by an... More

What a wonderful place to stay and eat, outstanding service, beautiful setting and such comfortable rooms, immaculately clean. Great welcome by a delightful English family we were made to feel so at home. Wish we could have stayed longer. Will definitely return to this area.

It is run by an English family,the daughter heading front of house,with dad and brother doing the cooking. Dinner was divine,and breakfast,although self service was wonderful. The bedrooms were of an adequate... More

We visited this restaurant on the 17/03/16. We had booked a table for 29 people (Classic car club)). The restaurant sits on the banks of the Charente river and is in a lovely position. Inside it is obviously a very nicely appointment establishment. We had pre booked a 3 coarse meal with coffee & wine for €18. Ok this doesn't... More

We visited with a group of 29 people from a car club. The food was excellent and service good there was a little mix up with the wine but that was a bit of misunderstanding. Maybe we'll try again when we are able to enjoy the outside space.
