Four restaurant reviews

Saturday 10th June
2nd visit to Le Moulin at Varen with friends.  Another excellent lunch.  Despite our reservation getting 'lost' we were welcomed warmly and this time ate outside as it was such a glorious day.  Again 5 choices for each course, all tempting so scallops and tuna were chosen and both excellent, followed by filet de porc and Plancha de boeuf.  Desserts equally delicious with tarte au citron caramélisé and abricot et amande  being chosen.  Also very good pichets of rose and red wine.  Also a chat with Patrick, chef patron, always a bonus.  Would recommend to everyone. 5/5. (Minor point - fly killer would be appreciated as they were very annoying whilst eating)

4th visit to La Seye et Vous at Verfeil and the best.  This was arranged for the walking club on Wednesday 7th June and a happy crowd of 30 had a most enjoyable meal of salad, lasagne, chocolate fondants, coffee and house wine at an excellent price of €15.
Warm welcome from Brice, the new owner, charming, lovely and efficient staff - excellent atmosphere and all round approval.  5/5

1st visit to the Creperie in St Antonin for lunch Wednesday 31st May. Despite being the first arrivals we received a warm welcome and chose one crepe with goats cheese, honey and nuts and another with ham, cheese and mushrooms accompanied by a delicious dry cider, and then dessert crepes of one with chocolate and one with lemon, and joined by friends who had called in for dessert only, so an added bonus.  All round most enjoyable (I love crepes) and look forward to another visit. 

The Creperie is a little restaurant in St Antonin a couple of doors along from the old walnut mill. 5/5

1st visit to Relais Mont Viaur at  St Andre de Najac with friends on their recommendation on 31st May.   Sadly it was pouring with rain so we had to eat inside.  Good choices on a la carte menu and we all enjoyed our assorted choices and would certainly return, hopefully when the sun is shining so we can eat outside next time.  Price for our share was €45 including wine and coffee which we felt was reasonable.

Just in case of interest for your blog, which I read daily!
