We were very glad to have found Yoann and Louis Amavi’s restaurant, called appropriately Notre Resto and just a gentle stroll from the main square. It was a very warm evening and we had a table on the terrace, which although bordered by a fairly large road was not too noisy. Luckily we’d booked earlier in the day, as the terrace only held about 26 covers and filled fairly quickly while we were there.

We ordered a glass of local white Roussette Altesse as apperos and a pichet of water. Water from the tap often has unpleasant flavours, but here it was perfect - possible as the mountain water starts off being so pure anyway. The menu had some interesting choices; I went for a green pea tart with ail des ours (wild garlic) sauce, and my wife took Raviole de Royans on a salad of heritage tomatoes. The little Emmental or Comté filled Ravioles are commonly grilled or poached, but here they were deep fried and delicious.

I followed with a perfectly cooked porc Ibérique chop in a mustard sauce, and my wife had magret de canard (duck breast) with poached peach. Both dishes had the same cubes of small vegetables, but they went OK with each. More notable were the deep fried potatoes, which were excellent.

I finished with a brioche pain perdu and my wife with a sabayon and a fruit salad. Hers had a pipette of eau de vie for injecting into the fruit - fun, albeit a bit naff, and it does allow a child or teetotaller to avoid the little alcohol kick.

Service is led by the owner’s son and is very efficient, informative and friendly. One slight criticism is that our coffee was served before our dessert plates were taken away, but the son was too busy at another table at the time to oversee this and it was not exactly a catastrophe anyway.

The following evening was too taken up by watching groups perform at the fabulous La Roche Bluegrass festival or we’d most probably have returned then too.

In a town that appeared to be ill provided with decent places to eat ‘proper food’ Notre Resto is a treasure.

We were invited to play Bluegrass music at Notre Rest during the La Roiche Bluegrass Festival. When we finished playing we were invited to have a specially prepared meal of pork ribs, and talk about special!!! Notre Resto outdid all other attempts at making BBQ ribs by anyone I have tried so far including chefs in KC, Chicage and anywhere else that professes to make a nice plate of ribs. The serci and hospitality were A1+ and we will definately be back.

It was my first time here tonight, and it was really good, great food, nice ambiance, it's a family business and my favorite thing was the service: spotless and with a very big smile. I will come back for sure next time I am visiting my family. Thank you for the great evening.
