Au Vieux Four

Bistro in Gorges du Loup

With stone walls, whitewashed beamed ceilings, vintage Laughing Cow posters and colourful mismatched napkins, this bistro in medieval Gourdon wins instant cosiness points. But the real highlight is chef Stephan Lucas' splendid home cooking. The short, market-fresh menu bursts with flavour in dishes such as chicken and vegetable risotto or pork ribs with creamy polenta, garlicky mushrooms and caramelised carrots.
