Ranked #2 of 39 Restaurants in Condom
Description: Our restaurant is located in a house of the 18th century; it has been built by French “compagnons” on moat of the 13th century. The diner room itself is also of the 18th century, with antique fireplace and sculptures. Our cook tries to honor this historical setting, sourcing from local producers (“LOCAVORE“ Label), with products from organic agriculture. So we offer you a menu based on fresh food, with only homemade courses.Welcome among us, in this site, situated next to a World heritage monument.

We choose the three course menu starting with a salad with Duck Breast and roast potatoes?? Followed by ravioli stuffed with fois gras and an excellent but very heavy crème brulée. The entire meals was very greasy and unbalanced. This more a lunch for heavy workers and not a Sunday family lunch.

Last week we stayed at Chateau de Fources and were recommended dining at Le Balcon in nearby Condom (yes, that's the real name of the town).
I have to say that the location, sitting outdoors on a narrow balcony and watching the world go by, was very soothing. The food was really a pleasure: well presented, timely in each courses' delivery and extremely tasty. My wife had a veal dish with a tasty jus with Asian veggies that had her well pleased and I had a dish of hand made ravioli stuffed with pork and lightly bathed in an Asian dressing that was unbelievably good. Deserts and coffees were also tasty and well presented. All the produce was local.
Our waiter was very accommodating particularly as our French is extremely poor.
Highly recommend this place for quality, service and price

Ate here twice with my family and had superb food and very friendly attentive service. It's right beside the beautiful cathedral and square and offers great value for money also

We travelled to Condom on the spur of the moment from our holiday home near Riscle, about an hour away. After spending a really lovely afternoon in the charming town, with it's impressive cathedral and great epicurean shops, we started to feel hungry. I enquired at Le Balcon and seeing how busy they were, was really impressed with the effort they made to fit in all eight of us - five adults and three children, with only a 30 minute wait, when we went for a drink nearby. Service was attentive and friendly throughout and the food was great. The kids were delighted with the steak frites and most adults had a set menu of stunning homemade foie gras ravioli, preceded by a delicious salad with duck breast and followed by a pot of creamy, Armagnac deliciousness to finish. I would thoroughly recommend this place to anyone who chances upon the beautiful town of Condom.
