This is an astounding restaurant. Relaxed and causal atmosphere with some of the best food we have enjoyed in all of France. Superb staff. Creative and perfectly executed dishes. Not cheap, but a serious value for the qualit. An unforgettable experience. Thank you to the staff of Le Bistrot d'Epicure.

Our first visit was wonderful, the food and service was excellent sitting out on the terrace - though the price of soft drinks was somewhat high but a thoroughly enjoyable experience,

On a return visit due to the weather we were inside it was stuffy and there was only the one person to serve all the tables it lacked atmosphere of the previous visit and you ended up watching the server to see when it was your turn to be served. The menu also doesn't change.

Plus due to power problems in the area our card was declined not our bank (as discovered next morning on contacting them) but maybe the card reader should have been re-booted before customers paid so we left feeling sad our last evening was not as good as before.

If we are in the area we would go back.

Excellent food but with a service somewhat over the top. We sat outside, and the patio was nice; it was a chilly evening, but there were blankets at all the tables; I used one, and was grateful for it. Good wine list with prices amazingly inexpensive, compared to restaurants in the US. This happens often in parts of Europe. Excellent price/quality ratio.

We had an amazing dinner here. The duck carpaccio with truffle ice cream was amazing, truly memorable. The white asparagus was very good. They take local traditional dishes and make them modern and different. The beef and lamb meals were tasty but couldn't top the appetizers. Excellent service and pleasant ambience. During the week in mid-May there were only a few other diners.

Our group of 4 went there as recommended by locals and very happy with our choices. The scallops sashimi style and river fish were delicious. Could not believe there was such high standard of food in such a small village. We saw the chef at the end of the evening and told him how talented he was! The only dish that was disappointing was my husband's beef as it was a little over done than medium rare as specified. The dining room was very modern in such contrast to the building and the village. Service was excellent.

The hostess was such a character & she really made our night!
