I spoke to the owner Chef before we booked and he made an absolutely lovely vegan meal for me, with roasted aubergine, delicious salad with avocado and apple, wonderful to get this in a small town in France. Make sure you talk to the chef, the manager seemed a bit put out by the fact that I wasn't going to... More

Very good cuisine, with daily menus or a la carte. not the cheapest place but value for money. A pity that the choice of beers is limited. Been here for the 3rd time already and will come back !

One of our favourite restaurants in Niort. An interesting menu, lunchtime and evening. Helpful staff and a good atmosphere. Better to book for lunch or evening as the restaurant is very popular. Easy municipal pay parking close by. The centre of town is a short walk with a very good market on Thursdays.

Fantastic lunch here. I had the weekday lunch deal for around 12euro and a glass of champagne. My husband had a fixed price menu for around 19euro. We shared a pichet of sauvignon which went well with our food. My husband was impressed with his seafood terrine starter. We were both very pleased with our mains (salmon for me and... More

We arrived at the restaurant about 30 minutes before opening, but the owner let us in and made sure a table was reserved for later that night. Well, I am so happy he did! When we came back we were greeted as if we were long lost friends and given a great table. The owner's daughter came to assist the... More

After researching where to eat in Niort we decided to give this restaurant a go. We arrived just after 12.00. The place was already very busy. We managed to get a table for 4 without a reservation. The food was excellent and well priced. They do a lunchtime special - no choice - but a three course meal for under... More

Busy on a Monday night with townsfolk and deservedly so. The food was traditional but well presented in a cosy but modern setting. A varied 3 course menu cost €26, there was a good choice of wine by glass, carafe or bottle and service was efficient, the lady of the house charming. Not a lot more you can say or... More

We were recommended this restaurant by the hotel. The food we had was good. The service was not so brilliant, we were advised by one waiter rather sharply that we had to sit outside. I am not sure, but I think he said because the inside was booked (note - book if it is a Saturday or other busy night).... More
