We came back to this restaurant for a second evening as they accommodated our group of 12 and served orders promptly. As ever, in France, not great for me as a vegetarian but the rest of the party found it good. Ordered melon starter which came with ham. Just take it off and give to someone was response to complaint.

Had a meal in restaurant yeaterday evening which was excellent. All 4 starters were well presented and in most cases large which made the main meals a little harder to finish. All food and wine was served at appropriate speed allowing us to enjoy the food and ambitious of the premises. The staff were first class friendly and very efficient.... More

Having had a long day work and driving down France arrived at the hotel to find the restaurant was closed. This forced me to take a walk out looking for somewhere to eat. Came across La Bouche a Orieille which just looking in looked very welcoming. Inside a wonderful, warm, friendly little restaurant. Excellent, very friendly and efficient service from... More

This is my third time at this fantastic family owned and run restaurant. Once agin the experience was faultless and I enjoyed every minute of it. I cannot recommend it too highly. I will be back with my wife in April.

We were looking for a place to eat for my wife's birthday and had noticed this Bistro earlier in the day. We thought it looked intimate and homely with warm and comfortable surroundings so returned in the evening (tip - get there fairly early). The food was absolutely superb and madame's was an impeccable hostess and incredibly friendly. We both... More

We did not get the chance to sample their food but were shocked at the unfriendly response of the lady in charge when we asked if we could dine there. The restaurant was full and we asked if we could come at a later time, but we were more or less verbally attacked how we dared to ask. We speak... More

A wonderful meal, lots of choice and the lady in charge was very friendly and welcoming. She did recommend the wines to us, and both the rose and the red were excellent and not too expensive. Our bill was 60€ in total for the two of us, which was very reasonable given the quality of both the food and wine.

We were warmly welcomed by Madame Sylvie. She and her staff were attentive all evening despite the restaurant being full, inside and out. The food was excellent with most of us opting for the salmon tartare (a mixture of chopped fresh and smoked), bavette steak, ending with an orange crème brûlée. This being the evening of music throughout France we... More

We booked a large group meal here at short notice and were given good choices and a good price. Food well presented and lives up to the description on the menu. Restaurant always seems to be busy and we were lucky to get in.
