Cooking is a story of taste… And good products! Those who make the difference, who awaken the taste buds and above all whose origin we know. The Roannais territory has this wealth. Gold producers who raise, cultivate and refine quality products, but also cooks and restaurateurs who know how to transform them with talent, love and passion. Here are some great addresses to discover and share without moderation.

Atelier Locavore

Le Coteau

With its restaurantAtelier, Guillaume Goutaudier defends the locavore movement which consists of working with local and seasonal products within a 200 km radius. A founding principle which allows it to honor the producers of Roannais and its terroir of which it is proud. On the plates, tasty and inspired market cuisine, rewarded, in 2023, with a Bib Gourmand at Michelin.

Eléa and Quentin welcome you in the center of Roanne in their restaurant with an evocative name. Their cuisine, which they describe as “uninhibited”, goes off the beaten track and surprises with original flavor combinations. Papilles is also a responsible restaurant that works with organic and local seasonal products. In short, healthy and creative dishes that are good for the heart and body.


In 2023, the Papilles restaurant was elected by the readers of the Tribune – Le Progrès as the best restaurant in Roanne during the “Your favorite restaurants in the Loire” event.

The peas are red


At Martine and David, everything is beautiful… And good! From the garden to the greenhouse via the barn, you are transported to a world where plants are king. They grow and cook organic vegetables that you can find at their home, every Saturday morning, during their open barn. From the ground to the plate, an expression that seems to have been invented for them, quite simply.

Curious and always in search of new sensations, I multiply the experiences. I like going out to meet the great people of Roannaise gastronomy as much as taking an interest in the heritage of the region.
