Nathalie, is the owner, the chef and after 5 minutes she will become a friend. The food was the type of cuisine you would expect if someone in the area were to invite you eat at their mother's home. Beautiful house made foie gras terrine perfectly paired with a gingered jam. Followed by black truffle ravioli, and of course the... More

In late September 2016 our group of 16 arranged in advance a lunch at La Cave. It was superb in every way, from the multiple food courses to the service to the excellent and well-priced wines. At some point I will return even though I am over 3,900 miles/6,250 km away.

Excellent place to taste wines from different local wine producers, from the very smallest to the world famous ones. The lady knows both the wines and the producers, and is well connected. Try the home-made foie gras!

We dined here on a Monday evening, when all the more formal Tripadvisor picks were already booked out or closed for the night. However, given this was #2 in town, we were looking forward to a wonderful evening of wine and food. The owner was very friendly, chatty, and we talked at length about several wineries we had visited on... More

I took 16 clients for a wine tour to the northern rhone and had lunch at the Cave de Taurobole. This is an amazing place. The food is great (simple but outstanding produces), the wine list is outstanding and the service is mastered by Nathalie, the owner. Strongly recommended!
