We were hungry and it was the wrong time to eat in France (we will get it right one day!) Typical French bar, food available all day. Lady behind bar took us to the salon, took drink orders. Service was quick, we ordered from the set menu €14. Starters arrived and were ok. Main course arrived, a piece of dark grilled meat covered in herbs together with mixed watery - obviously frozen - luke warm veg. The potatoes looked promising, but no, they were from the freezer and also luke warm and tasteless. Pudding time my sister's favorite Ile flottante (there was only one left so I had chocolate mousse) yes you've guessed it FROZEN! Still ice crystals in the, what we think was meringue. Ok - good points, lovely bar, a bit Fayed but pleasant enough. Facilities were clean and modern. Beer was good and lovely Dalmatian dog you greet you as you arrived. Would go back and have a drink, but avoid the food unless you have no taste buds!

The Plat de Jour had been described as Roast Chicken with Chips. On arrival the plate was swimming in a yellow sauce and the Chicken itself was just on the polite side of frozen. My entrecote steak was poor quality and the bleu sauce consisted of a piece of cheese melted in milk. Eventually after hassle, the roast chicken was substituted with an omelette.
Certainly a night to remember; as in not ever return.

There isn't much in Doue-la-Fountaine and we walked around trying to find somewhere for lunch after visiting the nearby troglodytic sites. The place was quiet, well, inside at least. Outside were a number of people obviously out on their lunch break. There were lots of dishes on boards on the wall and the dish of the day sounded good - a beef stew, if I remembered correctly. Many of the workers out on lunch had that. As it was a hot day, we ordered salads instead. My salad of duck gessiers and ham was perfectly good, and a nice apricot tart for dessert. The tart was home made, too.

Great value, good food and a friendly waitress. What more is there to ask for?

Give this one a miss, it was the worst place we have ever eaten in, be it in the UK or any other country. I had the mussels and chips?? - maybe that should have warned me, and they were truly disgusting, goodness only knows what they were floating in, my husband had a very rubbery omelette again with chips, the only passable thing was the wine - well they couldn't do much to that. The only good comments we have is the place was clean and the waitress friendly.
