at the heart of Figeac’s medieval city
Seasonal gourmet cuisine awaits you at La Dinée, the bistro restaurant at the Château du Viguier. The term “Dinée” was originally used to designate the inn where one would stop to eat during a journey. The “Dinée” was as important as the lodgings. Within this rich, historical environment (an old guardroom with high ceilings, exposed beams and a fireplace with a sculpted mantel), the young chef Anthony Carballo, as a lover of both his region and his profession, produces delectable seasonal cuisine made of fresh produce.
His menu is both accessible and original, heavily inspired by the local riches. Anthony Carballo has rubbed shoulders with some major players, having been the chef de partie for meat at Le Meurice in Paris or the second-in-command at the Chalet du Mont d’Arbois in Megève.
He has come to create a varied cuisine. Ample and authentic, it provides a fresh spin on regional favourites. Enjoy the likes of foie gras and spiced malbec jelly, roast Quercy lamb with wild garlic, peas and beans cooked with wild mint, or meringue with Figeac nuts, salted caramel and popcorn ice cream.
