I present to you a hotel restaurant in which you can only feel good. The atmosphere first of all, very "family", you are well received. And then the proposed cuisine. You will be served homemade dishes, regional dishes. Everything is in the quality but also in the quantity. You don't have a piece of meat dueling a vegetable that you accidentally found under the meat. Oh! no... you will appreciate this cuisine made of "good food" and a walk in the magnificent landscapes of Lozère will make you gently digest your excellent meal.
It is reached by Aumont-Aubrac which is on the edge of the A75 motorway just after Marvejols (in the Montpellier-Clermont direction).
Once in the village, take the departmental D 50 and spin through enchanting landscapes for 9 km to Fau de Peyre, a hamlet petrified in the granite which surrounds a Romanesque church with a comb bell tower... The restaurant is at the edge of the road.
Created in 1945 first as a complement, then instead of a small grocery store, the establishment, which is also a hotel, has two large rooms and a terrace. Renée Tichit, unfortunately deceased, the founder, trained her daughter Andrée in Lozère cuisine, which in turn trained the current cook who came from Mende as an apprentice. The restaurant that is always full closed from December 16 to January 15.
It is one of the last temples of Lozère cuisine. Its "homemade" cold cuts and its frogs are inimitable, but I also recommend the manouls, the trout with bacon, the sweetbreads with mousserons, the porcini mushrooms (in season), the aligot, the rib of beef and the cheeses (we are in Aubrac). The desserts are based on wild fruits (blueberries, raspberries etc.) except for the coupetado served on cold days.
The house offers a dish of the day that constantly varies and is also worth the detour, like a certain cabbage guinea fowl that has marked my memory. You can eat a la carte.
In conclusion, I will sum up my thoughts by stating loud and clear that Andrée's restaurant, which is one of the last bastions of authentic Lozère cuisine, honors the "eating well of Gévaudan".
Remember to reserve before you go!!
The hotel is located a few meters from the restaurant, the rooms are spacious, pleasant (it's not a 5 star either) but more than enough to have the necessary comfort on vacation.
