We stopped here by chance: late arrival to Gourdon after beautiful hike through the Gorges du Loup area. The city was empty and calm and the restaurant was probably the only one opened at the late hour.
The service was super friendly. It looked like a family establishment as our waiters toddler daughter lived across the street and kept coming over to play with her kitten.
The food was very good, inventive and on a gourmet side. Substitutes were allowed. Despite limited English, we had no problem understanding each other.
As it got very cold later in the evening, the hostess brought us warm blankets as we were seating outside.
Overall - this is a hidden gem with a good quality food and lovely atmosphere.

We have been looking forward to visiting Au Vieux Four for a long time and we were not disappointed. Excellent food from a short menu and friendly efficient service. We will return very soon.

They used to be based in Le Bar-sur-Loupe, but relocated to this smaller venue which is stunning. Being market food, the choice is limited - but that is what makes it so fresh and delicious. A real must.

As with some other reviews for this restaurant it Seems people either have a wonderful experience or the owner dislikes the look of you (tourist) and she treats you with arrogance and rudeness. Sadly we got the later. Good luck.
