The food is good, but the choice was very limited, the service given that there was only two other tables in the restaurant was slow.With only a chef and waitress working. If you like good ,well prepared food and don't mind the price come here. Otherwise there are a lot better restaurants around.

A restaurant we have patronised quite a few times but not since 2015 and we were very disappointed. The 'welcome' from the single waitress was uncompromising when she could only offer a table hard against the front door, despite being the first clients of the day. In what could only be described as a cafeteria a single plastic encapsulated sheet... More

I went to Le Compostelle as part of a lunch party of 6 people. Unfortunately we could not be seated outside as the weather was not suitable. Our table was prepared and ready at the prescribed time and we were seated immediately. The lady looking after us spoke some English although the majority of our party spoke some French. Four...

We were recommended to go here and went for lunch the following week. The 'Menu' for that day didn't suit either of us so we had steak and chips. We both thought the steaks were one of the tastiest we'd had in France, and mine was so big it was almost falling off the plate. We managed to eat everything... More

This is an excellent fine dining restaurant in Tusson just a few km from Ruffec in the Poitou Charentes. We had the Chef's menu of six courses which was absolutely wonderful and fine dining at its best. Scallops to die for starters of original and delicious concoctions with the "unctuous" and charming service of our waitress. Truly vaut le visite... More

We were visiting family in Tusson, a fabulous village set in rolling countryside near the home of cognac. The restaurant has two rooms, a bistro at the front and a more formal dinning area at the rear. We ate in the formal restaurant and had a great meal. Small menus with lots of interesting local sourced produce. There is an... More

Visited as a party of six, as we were staying in the area and our hosts live locally. The food was unexpectedly excellent, as was the service. The outside is very unassuming: almost gastro pub, but the dining room is polished and elegant. The food was great: unique and inventive courses on the menu. The quality of ingredients and their...

Atmosphere nice BUT: The choice was very limited, 2 menues(55 and 35 €), for cheese 5€ and for a special desert another 5€ extra in the 35€ menue. Cold potatoe soup, good but nothing special, the best was the slice of bread. The main dish: porc filet croustillant: I have never eaten such a dry, big and difficult to cut... More
