Nice restaurant, located at the Deols´truck center (Centre Routier), with a nice ambience. Service fast, with simpathy and good food. Dishes presentation in good quantity and quality.

like all Les Routiers, its a truckers stop but don't be put off. The more trucks the better the food and these people have loads of trucks! There are two restaurants here one 'posher' than the other but both excellent. Best restaurant we have found at Deols and we stop a lot.

Arriving in Deols at 10pm we thought there wouldn't be anywhere still open for dinner and had resigned ourselves to a cheese roll in our room at Ibis. We were wrong . This delightful restaurant serves 24/7 high quality French cuisine. The majority of the building is a Les Routiers truck stop but tucked away on the side is a... More

Only the French could have a ''truck-stop'' with wine, seafood, steak tartare, chariots de frômage, desserts, and more! A café + bookstore are also there!

Effectively a glorified service station that does fish very well. Generally excellent fish, although the atmosphere is not super if you're outside the lunch time rush. However, there are issues, like the mussels seem to be cooked in one giant lot - they are superb if you arrive spot on midday, but turn up at 1.30 and they're overcooked and... More

We we're travelling down to Provence and staying overnight in Chateuaroux and advised by a friend to visit this restaurant as we would not be disappointed. From the outside you would walk by but one inside the ambience is superb, served by friendly staff and food excellent with a wide choice at very reasonable prices. Would certainly recommend and we...

This place is really busy. The atmosphere is a bit special as most of the diners are truck drivers. The food is surprisingly good though, and you certainly will not go home hungry. Strongly recommended !

We stopped at Deols for an overnight visit and decided to eat at this restaurant. This Les Routiers restaurant was excellent value for money. We had a superb 3 course meal with beers and half a bottle of red for me for only 38 euros. The food was all freshly cooked and very tasty. The only problem was that there... More
