France has traditionally been known for its fine cuisine. There are also numerous options for eating out, from a simple meal in a village pub to a sumptuous dinner at a fancy restaurant. People are proud of delicacies from their own region, and it is therefore, that they very often use local products to cook, such as the meat of Charolais cows, cheese from the Auvergne and wine from Saint-Pourcain. In Lapalisse there are several restaurants such as Le Moulin Marin which is located in a converted mill. But even for a simple pizza you can visit this village.
