I've been there with some my collegues who live in the sorroundings and know very well the location. This is a very nice opportunity to eat in a traditional restaurant inside the rocks (they call it "troglodit") and taste traditional food: in particular I liked...More

Great location, what an amazing place to eat. Food ok, but nothing special - all you can eat means you're guaranteed to leave with a full belly. I went with a vegetarian. It seemed that food options for vegetarians are limited, though they did bring...More

We stopped in on recommendation from our hotel. The owners greet you with a smile. They served delicious fresh hot bread from a fire oven. Your fill them and enjoy. The atmosphere is unique with the cave... worth a visit.

The fixed Menu Troglos focuses on the food of the ancient people who lived here, and on local ingredients. Very good, varied foods, and an extraordinary value when you factor in that wine is included in the modest price.

Just one set menu - no need to make any decisions. You are offered an aperitif of Coteau de layon, a lovely, local, sweet wine. The first starter - delicious garlic mushrooms in small pitta breads, the pitta breads arrive throughout the meal hot, straight...More
