In the magnificent setting of Cantal our Michelin star restaurant

Where Quercy, Rouergue and the Auvergne Mountains meet, gastronomy and hospitality are the watchwords! The Auberge de la Tour in Cantal is a perfect example.
Chef Renaud Darmanin invites you to experience his starred restaurant in Marcolès. His fine-dining cooking is full of flavour, always creative, and presented to make your mouth water! Fresh seasonal products, local flavours and an exotic touch fill the dining room with fragrance, wafting out to the terrace by the fountain in the summer. Come and taste delicious dishes, including his "truffade en charlotte"... an elegantly presented, fine-dining re-invention of the traditional Cantal recipe.

Our restaurant is closed on tuesday and wednesday (except July and August).

The Chef has twice won awards from the Gault & Millau Guide: The Auvergne "Young Talent" Trophy in 2014 and the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes "Innovation" Trophy in 2016. 

He won the 2015 Initiative Prize awarded by the Hotel Union (UMIH) in the "Restaurant" category.
