In the heart of Old Rodez, Emmanuelle and Jean-Luc FAU, welcome you in a comfortable modern room, ornamented by delightful and “handmade” culinary blend of colours; and extended when you arrive by a pleasant outdoor dining area which gives you a view on the pedestrian and green Embergues place. Trough seasons, they create only for you a market cooking made of tradition and imagination, a mixture between our country roots and modernity. A perfect match… In their thirties, they both discovered a common passion: cooking. They shared the same concerns about their client’s satisfaction and happiness. A bond was born and with it the desire to share their love for cooking. While Jean-Luc learned to cook first, Emmanuelle followed up by learning oenology. While Jean-Luc created the paintings on the wall, Emmanuelle earned a degree in Art History and Fine Art… A perfect match indeed.

All regions of France are represented on our map but we share the beautiful south-west and Languedoc-Roussillon. This is no mere “obligation” pseudo regionalist but because we are the most surprising encounters, there thus to make discoveries and diversity that we find wines that “get along well “with our dishes (perhaps because of a southern accent …). Many of our wines are organic wines and we offer “nature” that we love.
We tasted many wines and choices are first on our personal tastes (which we can do better “live” with them), their ability to fit in with our kitchen and complete our order able to satisfy the different aspirations of our customers (for those who have a clear idea of ​​who they want to drink). The card has 350 references (including 50 to 60 half bottles) and we offer between 10 and 15 wines by the glass
