This is a B&B and restaurant/tea room. It is run by a British lady and her French husband and everything except the standard baguette is cooked on premises. We had a selection of home-made breads that was delicious.

There are not a lot of places to eat in Montolieu so it's very nice that one of them is so nice. We had seen it advertised in a local tourist bureau leaflet and were delighted it was open on Monday when we visited. Many restaurants in rural France close on Monday since they have worked all weekend. This was a happy exception.

It was a bit breezy so we ate inside but there is seating outside if you enjoy the terrace.

Favorite Dish: Here is my journal entry for lunch:

We left the museum to have lunch and walked back down to Les Anges au Plafond (The Angels on the Ceiling) where we entered and were seated inside with a lovely breeze from the terrace. Ed had the ravioli with cêpes as a starter and I had the duck tarte. Peg skipped the starter today. She and Ed had a very tender chicken in cider sauce with veggies and a slice of roasted apple. I got the rabbit stuffed with farci and wrapped in bacon with vegetables. There were grapes with it and one looked like a blueberry and had an incredibly rich flavor. I later asked what it was and they said it was a very small grape bought at the local market that morning.

We all got a chocolate pear cake in crème anglais that was incredible. Great meal.
