Very good French restaurant with local and tasty food. At lunch you can get a local menu for 16 Euros including a starter ( we had a salad with backed roblochon- local cheese) a main dish ( rabbit cooked with mustard and vegetables) and a dessert (creme brûlée). Otherwise "a la carte" you can get an excellent entrecôte!
Just try it!

We had been to this restaurant before both in Summer & Winter and were very pleased with our experience. We had a table booked for 20.00 for 4. We were not welcomed at the restaurant but shown to a small room with only 2 other tables being used. The waitress struggled with French & English. Meals were just plonked on the table without explanation. The service was so slow that we were ordering Desert at 22.20 and noticed on the menu that the kitchen closed at 22.30. There was no atmosphere and the food was not presented particularly well, we were not asked at any time if everything was OK. I chose Cafe Gourmande but received no explanation of what was to be served. We spent over 50€ per person and I think as we had to walk past the manageress as we left she might at least have said Good Night.

We love Le Vieux Four so much we held our wedding reception here and this year we again had two splendid evenings - one inside and one on the terrace enjoying the warm evening

The first evening my husband and daughter had Raclette and I had the 27€ both were delicious - fish cooked to perfection with fresh to matos and a selection of summer vegetables. The next time my husband had the amazing 48€ menu of six courses - I was à la carte with a main of perche meunière which was divine. Our daughter had filet de fera which was also cooked to perfection bad serves with pommes saute and salad from the children's menu.

The pavlova on the first night and the cafe gourmand on the second visit rounded off the meal perfectly with the usual raspberry liqueur shot with the bill ...can't recommend it enough

Table for five was in a corner such that only one of us could get in and out and if either we or the people behind us moved at all chairs and backs collided
A waitress from Kenya who was just great, friendly and helpful
An obscure and cheap but surprisingly drinkable champagne
A cappachio of scallop to die for
A local grill your own for two at the table was infinitely forgettable, cooking contraption too small and too cool

Highs and lows on service, food, drink, but overall not inexpensive, can't quite make my mind up but will probably give it a miss next time
