From the moment you enter, you realize you are in store for a special dining experience. The menu, presentation, wine list and flavors found in each course are at a level that will have you returning again and again.

We decided, after many months of thinking about it, to go to lunch at the Auberge L'Esperance. We have friends who have been there and have recommended it to us. The surroundings were very pleasant and we were able to eat on the garden. Our dog came with us. We chose food from the main menu which, whilst a bit... More

We got appetizers, an intermediate course and some chocolate truffles and mini panna cotta with the coffee. The Food was just great, not only good but exceptionally well prepared. The fish was á point, the vegetables firm... More

Service is never rushed and what is served on your plate is always temptingly presented and a joy to eat. On our own we will often take the menu du... More

I can only add to the other glowing recommendations. We visited for lunch as a family (lovely garden with rabbit hutch and games to be enjoyed quietly!) and had a delicious meal. The menu has plenty of choice. An amuse-bouche of courgette with pastry was delicious. This place is definitely set apart by the quality of the ingredients and the... More

Our first visit was to celebrate Fathers Day with Sunday lunch! Lovely warm welcome. The menu offers lots of choice and there is something here for everyone. I say this because on our second visit with friends, one is vegetarian and didn't have a problem at all! The standard of the food and its presentation is fine dining at its... More

A recommendation from the host at our accommodation, the Auberge was a fantastic dining experience. At first glance Not an expansive selection of options but the set menu ticked all the boxes. A relaxed and friendly service of brilliant dishes at fantastic value - I'd have expected to pay double the £70 overall cost (including drinks) in the UK. Well... More

We just had an amazing meal at Auberge l'Esperance, luckily for us our friends wanted to share the place, I'd have kept it a secret myself. I cannot believe that such a gem would be found in such a quiet little place.
