The restaurant had a flexible in menu able to cater for a wide range of tastes. Everyone was happy with the simple food (chicken & chips !), and the service was good, although lacking a cheerful smile. I’d rate this as good ‘pub-type’ food.

La Salamadre is the typical restaurant where you go driven by your eyes. It was a mistake…and even though the setting is wonderful, food was basic and lacking in taste. But the worst was the horrific and surly service which mede you feel unwelcome all...More

A good bistrot located on the town main square . Friendly service and good local atmosphere despite being in a very touristy area.
