We had such a wonderful meal at Auberge du Petit Val. We were greeted very warmly by the waiter, and he looked after us very well all through dinner. We went for the Discovery Menu and all the food was stunning - the lamb neck comes particularly highly recommended. The portions were a good size, and we were both glad of the walk back to Vernon to wear the food off! I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough, it was one of the best meals I've had in ages and I'd love to return one day.

We stopped at this small restaurant for lunch while staying nearby in Giverny. We liked it so much that we came back for dinner. It's small, only eight tables, so every attention is paid to diners. The food was absolutely delicious. The chef is the owner and his son, Damien, is the sommelier. The waiter, Damien, was worked there since its start and is very knowledgeable about its regular offerings and specials. Can't recommend it highly enough.

If you've read any of my other reviews from this trip to France, you'll know that I hate when visiting sites that are huge tourist destinations (just don't like being amidst swarms of tourists, many of whom are only there because that is where their bus dropped them despite not having any interest in where they are. Similarly, I prefer to have lunch at a place that is a little ways away from the insanity of those sites. And for Monet's Gardens, the Auberge du Petit Val is definitely a perfect place - it is a five-seven minute drive to the gardens (directly across the river from each other) so it is horde-free. It is a beautiful stone building. The food is amazing. And the service is spectacular (they were so friendly that by the time we left we felt like we need to put them on our Christmas Card list!). Their chef makes some delicious spins on more traditional dishes to offer some creative options. One warning - you dine at a VERY relaxed pace so don't expect to get in and out quickly. And if you do have legitimate time constraints, tell your server so they can accommodate you as much as possible.

We were recommended this resturant, by the owner of the b&b where we were staying, and we were not disappointed. We were very warmly greeted and the staff were very attentive. Alas our French is minimal but not a problem, the two waiters spoke very good English and were very helpful explaining the dishes on the menu. Each course was beautifully prepared and served, the chef must be commended. Thank you very much for a lovely evening, and if we are ever in the area again we will certainly return.

Well worth a trip out of town, warm greeting, friendly attentive staff. Good ambiance and possibly more importantly good food. The place was packed on a Monday evening which must say loads. Came away thinking we had had a great night and really enjoyed the experience. Go there you won't be disappointed.
