Gourmande :

Logis de Pompois Pompois 30 minutes - A real treat in store especially the cheese board. A rather special restaurant which aids the training and employment of mentally impaired chefs and waiting staff into the restaurant business. Superb presentation and service. (Should have a Michelin *)
