A lovely contemporary restaurant - indoor wall gardens mixed with lovely original features. 19 euros for fabulous 4 couse dinner beautifully presented with excellent service. Even the picket of wine was better value than other restaurants. Highly recommend. Lunch is also great valternative. Packed on Friday evening, so worth making a reservation

The Lowdown on Loudun What larks we had in Loudun [Pip] ! We stopped on our journey crossing France South West to North. My wife picked out an excellent B&B, L’Aumonerie, for an overnight stay in Loudun. This is a town we had never been before and what a nice little town it is. Asking the advice of our hostess...

We had a very good evening meal while stopping overnight in Loudun. There is an outside area overlooking a small square suitable for pre-dinner drinks and no doubt for eating out in warm weather. The dining room is pleasant and the staff helpful; e.g. when we asked for advice on which local, dry white wine would suit our chosen dishes... More

Had dinner here. It was very good, but not quite as good as other meals we have had in the region: don't let that put you off, because we did fall very lucky elsewhere. Right in the centre of town, parking was not a problem, and the terrace was pleasant. Service was prompt. Price for the quality was pretty good:... More

We walked in to evening service without a booking and we were accommodated even although we had no reservation and they were extremely busy, very open and friendly and their approach was completely professional. Fine dining indeed, a meal that has inspired me to grab the cookery books on my return to try to recreate the amazing dishes presented by... More

We were recommended this restaurant by the owner of the house we are staying in. It was the best meal we have had in a long time. This is how to run a business - amazing service, food beautifully presented, very good prices for the quality of food. We were amazed. You must book though - we watched many people... More

The whole restaurant is perfectly matched to the food. Competent, well presented and has echoes of visiting an art exhibition of "painting by numbers" Each plate was good but felt like a 90% reproduction of an chefs perfection. Despite the harsh words, I will visit again because it was good !

I spent three nights in the area recently, and went to Le Ricordeau on three occasions - twice for dinner, and the third for lunch with a number of French friends. On all three occasions I chose dishes from the basic fixed price menu, four excellent courses for just 17.90 Euros. How they manage such quality for such reasonable prices... More
