Had lunch here again. It just gets better! Fabulous welcome, excellent service, creative dishes with top class ingredients, and a thoroughly well thought out wine list. Lamb sweetbreads for me, scollops for the others followed by red mullet. Spectacular throughout. A bottle of Jurancon to start with and a half of Gaillac with the cheese.

Six of us booked for lunch, and drove nearly an hour to get here. In fact, only three other tables were occupied. Naturally, we had the MENU DÉCOUVERTE EN 3 PLATS, €53, instead of the menu tradition. In fact, we didn't even ask what was on that day. Probably great. Well, next time. Terrific amuses bouches of tempura leaves (not... More

It was my second visit to this restaurant, although my first for dinner.The welcome was warm and professional and we were seated at a table that was well spaced from those around. The menu is well balanced, easy to understand and priced at a level you would expect in a restaurant of this calibre. We were three people and chose... More

A last minute email to secure a reservation at the Michelin-star restaurant was quickly answered in excellent and friendly English confirming availability for our party of 6 non-French speakers. Lucky! A lovely decorated reception and restaurant area was topped off with a goldfish bowl "conversation piece" on each table. We chose the 3-plat menu and the chef sent us plenty... More

This is high quality and locally renowned restaurant family owned and run in a quiet but superb fortified, walled town. The produce as so often in this part of France is local, the cuisine takes inspiration from traditional local cooking but is refined and classy. A decent wine list with many local wines completes the dining experience. The building and... More

This is an oddity in that it is a modern minimalist decor restaurant situated in a very old and historic town in a modern building. The town is quiet, so quiet that when we visited the restaurant to confirm our Sunday lunch booking during a week day no one was there; but it was open and functional on Sunday for... More

One of our most pleasant and memorable dining experiences. A fresh Roquefort salad, tender fresh fish with a hint of rosemary accompanied by the most delicious combination of fresh seasonal vegetables including fennel. Dessert was an incredible fresh apricot mousse like sorbet. So fresh and all reasonably priced. Service was suitably attentive and a perfect lunch time setting. Definitely stop... More

We had lunch at Le Senechal to spoil ourselves on the final day of our week holiday in the region. Our choice was the lunch menu of the day. Each course of the menu was excellent, as were the small amuse and sweets that preceded and concluded our repas. Our only question here concerns the waiter service. Obviously a restaurant... More
