“Great traditional restaurant”
Reviewed 3 September 2012

A really great French restaurant in the traditional style. Great for lunch when many locals dine there. In the evening the best spot is the terrace. There are a number of "Plat" selections available and the prices are very good value for money. I cannot praise the red vin du table highly enough, it was a real treat!! The cheese plate for desert could be a meal on its own and the soup arrives in a tureen, tasty and plentyt of it. The service is prompt and courteous. I cannot image anyone dining for either lunch or dinner being disappointed.

“Best in the area”
Reviewed 2 September 2012

We have visited this place several times when on holiday over the years. Madame is always very pleasant and Sabrina the waitress is brilliant. The food is excellent and the included wine good. Usually the customers are friendly too and therefore its a good atmosphere. Value for money in every way.

“Proper restaurant !!”
Reviewed 31 August 2012

11.50 for four courses and all the red wine you can drink, lovely terrace, clean, polite service, easy parking - I defy anyone to moan about quality/price here - besides you would have to fight with the local farmers who come every day!!

“Excellent value for money”
Reviewed 30 August 2012

Always reliable. Four courses including wine for a very reasonable price. Advisable to book as it is very popular.

“Great value for money!”
Reviewed 1 August 2012

We found this restaurant whilst roaming nearby towns on our holidays (having rented out a countryside gite in the south of France), and this restaurant was in Seyches. This town appeared to be small and rural, as Le Vieux Porche is shut on Friday evenings and all day Saturday. However, we arrived on Sunday evening and were able to get a table inside, and were surprised to see a large booking of perhaps 20 people outside, which definitely looked promising! The atmosphere was quiet yet relaxing and we received our set menus reasonably soon after we sat down. For those not familiarised with French restaurants, they offer set priced menus and we chose the 15€ menu, boasting either fish soup or 'potage', a starter such as hors d'oeuvres, a selection of mains, classic desserts like Creme Brûlée and a carafe of wine! The only disappointing part of the meal was the service, but we understood the night we had chosen appeared to be a busy one for the waitresses. For the price listed, my family and I found this meal affordable and delicious, and we left Le Vieux Porche, pleased with the French cuisine we had had the opportunity to try.
