The Owner Recommends

Local Gastronomy

The Gers is famous for its Armagnac, a digestif taken at the end of the meal. But before that most restaurants provide a 4-course lunch for around 13 Euros. Foie Gras and magret de canard are local specialities. Eating out is relaxing and inexpensive. But try to arrive just after noon and be prepared to spend a minimum 2 hours. Fast food is available in some places, eg Cafeterias in the larger supermarkets
