“Excellent value”
Review of Le Balcon

Le Balcon
Ranked #3 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.

Lovely location by the centre of town with table overlooking the square. Very good value for very good food. We would definitely go again.

We wanted to celebrate our anniversary in a great setting in a great restaurant. This happen to be while we were in the Gers region and chose Le Balcon after several people recommended it as the best in the region.
The setting was lovely, we had a table by the balcony since it was a very rainy evening. We wanted to have a dish featuring foie gras, the region's specialty. The only choice with foie gras on the menu was "raviolis au foie gras". There was so little foie gras that the only thing you could taste was the dough.
The other dish was also average. We chose a carafe of house wine, which again we expected to be decent, given the restaurant's review; it was so bad that we didn't drink it.
We were very disappointed. There are other restaurants in this town square, much better food, less expensive, Le Balcon did not live up to its reputation.

Chère Madame,

Nous ne vous avons pas servi de foie gras poêlé pour votre anniversaire car, comme indiqué sur le menu avant de franchir notre porte, en français et en anglais, nous n'en avons pas sauf à l'intérieur de ravioles que nous faisons nous même. Si vous nous aviez demandé un cassoulet, nous aurions été obligés de vous dire la même chose tout en étant dans le Gers.
Concernant le vin, la carte, que vous n'avez peut être pas vue, vous permet de choisir un vin qui vous convienne. Et si le vin servi ne vous plaît pas, sachez qu'il est plus utile de le dire au serveur qui le changera sans problème plutôt qu'à TripAdvisor...
En tout cas, nous sommes à l'écoute et sachez que nous serons plus efficace si vous nous en parlez de vive voix.
Cordialement.

Used to be La Creperie but now modernised and still retaining its top location in town. Good coffee, good service, good food, polite staff. Eat here at least once if you in Condom.

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.
