We ate here on a Friday evening mid August; as per other reviews, found it to be very good. Food sufficiently 'French' as to be interesting without being too much so as to put off the unadventurous. Pleasant terrace became slightly chilly late-evening, but the attentive hostess lent my wife a cardigan to fix things. Would definitely recommend.

We arrived on our chartered LeBoat on the river. This charming restaurant is just a 10 minute walk from the LeBoat base in Jarnac. The 3 of us chose different courses - each was very flavorful and well presented. Only French speaking owner and chef son but very friendly and made the language barrier dissolve. What's not to like?

This little restaurant is off the beaten track and well worth looking for. Our hostess.is the owner, the chef her son. Patio dining or sit in the cozy dining room. Our meals were fresh and creative.

27/5/16. La Chaumiere lived up to its very good reputation. It is a restaurant familial, cuisine a l'ancienne, and Madame Chaumiere's service and food was amazing. Do not be put off by the fact that she does not speak English and the blackboard menu is in French, you can work it out. Use your smart phone if necessary. All the... More

We went here with 4 couples on a Saturdaynight. The outside of the restaurant located in the side-street of Jarnac, looks quite old fashioned, like the furniture as well. Nevertheless this does not represent the meals! No menu but the starters, main dish etc, written on the chalkboard on the wall tell you what can be chosen from. The owner... More

The restaurant was quiet this Thursday night and with little outside evidence of activity walked past at first. Glad we turned around. Met the chef to say a thank you after a perfect dinner.

Off the beaten track, opposite the ancient ramparts, lies a hidden treasure on the Rue des Fosses. Like many anonymous looking facades, the inside is plain and simple and I'd like to tell you about it. The set menu - or plat de jour - is always mouthwatering, but I like to wander off-piste. The foie gras, with apricot chutney... More

A small, family run restaurant in the centre of Jarnac. Excellent value fixed price menu with good options for each course. Good quality wines. So good we went 3 times. Everything cooked to order and very fresh.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our B&B in Chassors, we went on her advice. It was not busy, in fact no others were in there when we were, and it looked unassuming, but we went in never the less. The menu as others have stated was on the wall and we had to ask what some of the... More

We had a beautiful meal here on Friday evening. It's feels like having a lovely fresh smart home cooked meal in the dining room of a french home. A great way to feel the french vibe.
