We visited Poitiers on the way down to our holiday. Have to say was pleasantly surprised by both the town and the restaurant we choose. Was a little bit early at 6pm but we had a beer and the ordered food. Fantastic quality and the price was very reasonable. Definitely one to search out when in Poitier !

On a Sunday arrival in Poitiers, 80% of the restaurants are closed, but not La Gazette right in the center of this small delightful city. Appreciated being among local people, all of whom seemed to be "regulars". Service is very attentive, whether seated in the two dining areas or on the terrace facing the square. Prices at La Gazette are... More

We visited on a Sunday evening in late April for a light bite after a day travelling. The waiter was pleasant. The menu is limited but we both found something to our taste. The food was very tasty and the price very reasonable. We will venture back.

Always super busy but the staff do their best to squeeze you in. Family friendly as they always try to accommodate your pram if they can. I wish they would add a changing table in the toilet. Food is very good, both the burger and the bagel being firm favourites with me. The cafe gourmond dessert option is always good... More

We stopped into this café for tea and hot chocolate... The ambiance is quite nice and relaxed. The hot chocolate came with chunks of powder not mixed in. The tea was great. Then after we had been sitting and sipping for about 30 minutes, the waiter comes over and asks us to pay! This is the first time I have... More

What a great find! The restaurant had a lovely lively atmosphere, Glad we arrived before 1pm as there were only 2 tables free. Service was great and the food delicious. Looking forward to a return visit.

We stayed in Poitiers for one night heading south through France and while the restaurant recommended by our host was closed we found this little place at the corner of the square. Despite being after 9pm on a Monday it was buzzing on the terrace, and we were quickly seated inside which was empty at the time but soon filled... More

There wasn't much open on a Sunday evening, but we're so pleased there wasn't, as we may not have found La Gazette. It was really busy, but we were noticed straight away and were seated quickly. The food was really fresh, nice presented, interesting and tasty. We both had 3 courses, coffee and drinks, and the bill was €78, in... More

Just next to the Tribunal (and one of the loveliest historic spaces in Poitiers), this lively restaurant was packed with people eating inside and out when I arrived at 12:30. The menu had everything from traditional French food (gigot d'agneau) to Thai (rice noodle salad with chicken news and shrimps) to American (cheeseburgers and fries). The crowd was mostly young...
