Here on the austere Larzac plateau where peasant protests were held in the 1970s, Catherine Galtier’s resistant farm sure is a refuge – a rustic dining room with timeworn furniture, a cantou fireplace, big family tables, red tablecloths and bouquets of dried flowers… The house motto? Honor the terroir, always and organically! The other day, the €25 menu featured: excellent lamb pâté made from animals raised on the farm, plus a seasonal salad; a classic Carles Roquefort soufflé; lamb chops (that were a tad overcooked) with a golden zucchini gratin; a cheese plate with local gems (Roquefort and sheep’s milk cheese from Les Bergers du Larzac in Lacavalerie); before a double dessert of apricot cake and chocolate lava cake. // P.L.

FEELING THIRSTY? Regional options, of course: a Faugères from Raymond Roques (€4 a glass), a Côtes-de-Millau rosé from the Domaine de la Cardabelle (€19 a bottle), a Coteaux-du-Languedoc white from the Domaine Cour Saint-Vincent (€20) or a craft beer from the Brasserie d’Olt (€4 for 330 ml).

PRICE: Menus €25-€29, kids’ menu €16. Cash only.
