I just want to thank the chef and staff (and the owner, of course!) yesterday for a most memorable meal at lunch time. I went there with a co-worker for a lunch break and though the service was slow, as the restaurant was packed, the main course of pork was out of this World! The whole meal was a treat... More

Friendly attentive service. A choice of simple comfort food. it was open on a midweek evening in October when everywhere else was closed. It was like a mirage. Full marks for that. Not surprisingly it was busy.

This place manages to achieve rave reviews on Tripadvisor, despite serving very poor quality food - don't order the tough grissle-and-tubes steak! The staff and management offer you their own unique brand of je-ne-couldn't-care-less attitude towards the complaints that they receive from angry customers. In the UK, this place would have been forced to close down a long time ago.... More

Lovely location. In late October it was beautifully warm so we enjoyed a lovely table on the terrace. Service was warm and friendly, great choice on the a la carte menu, the fixed price menu was popular with lots of people too. My fish soup was superb, full of flavour. Hubby enjoyed scallops with red mullet on a bed of... More

Pleasant location, decent food but spoiled by the poor service. Close to the monolithic church, with a lot of steps to get into the restaurant - so not wheelchair or buggy friendly.

The place caters for the large tourist market, providing some sense of Frenchness, but quite pricey for the fare on offer. If you are to eat in the village there probably is little else better.

Our first time in France and this restaurant did not disappoint. The service was good and friendly and the food typically French. We had two meals here in the week and everyone enjoyed themselves.

We've eaten here twice now on this stay. The meals have been ok and the service friendly. The cats are an issue though. We are debating whether to return again with some other friends. Maybe third time lucky?

Nestled in a dip below the Church this restaurant offers good food and most pleasant service. The outside seating area is great in summer and is adequately covered by sun canopies should it become too hot!

We visited Auberterre market that was disappointingly small. Had coffee, hot chocolate and tea in main square which was absolutely superb as a place to relax and enjoy. We had a family lunch at the restaurant, food, staff and location all fabulous but spoilt by 3 cats constantly being allowed allowed to roam amongst the tables "begging for food". The... More
