Guinguettes were popular open-air drinking/café establishments located in the suburbs of Paris and other cities in France. Guinguettes would also serve as restaurants and, often, as dance venues. The origin of the term comes from guinguet, indicating a sour white light local wine.
In the town of Giverny our host recommended this popular open plan, open to the elements, rustic restaurant. Located across the road from our B&B and adjacent to the river that runs through the Gardens of Monet. It's an interesting setting, a deck of timber construction with a canopy that overlooks the cattle grazing on the meadows beyond. A simply delicious meal with wine for two weary travellers on a Saturday evening was a most acceptable €70.
