Description: Living like a god in France, who doesn’t want that? The Burgundian French life includes of course a nice meal. The restaurant Les Moulins de la Vergne serves traditional cuisine prepared from local, fair and only fresh and seasonal ingredients. Trendsetters of the French countrysideOur chef creates the most delicious and healthy delights where beautiful vegetables and herbs - from local suppliers in the direct vicinity of the land - the absolute trendsetters are. Surprise!We like to put our guests in the culinary pampered. And thereby go suprises that are not on the menu. Think of a sublime front or side dish, a liqueur or sweetener for coffee or a present for our youngest guests. Voilà.

The reason to come to this place is the atmosphere created by the staff, and the enthusiasm of the multilingual Portuguese chef, Marco, and his assistant, Carlos.

Caspar - a complete extrovert - runs the show and has two delightful young bar staff - Uri and Shannon. The clientele are principally Dutch and English, but the local French are there in good numbers, which is a real recommendation.

I live near this place and visit it frequently - drop in for a drink and find out when they have the best meal deals. Quiz on Friday evenings.

Popped in for a coffee and beer on the hottest afternoon so far. Great welcome from the Dutch host - we had a long chat about the mill and the restaurant. Beautiful setting by the river. Tranquility!!

We were staying on the Moulin's campsite and ate in the restaurant on several occasions in June and July. Casper, the manager, and his team made everyone feel very welcome. They offer an a la carte menu or you can have two or three courses as a "formule" now priced at €18-95. Marco the chef produces some stunning food; Beef Carpaccio, Confit Duck and Orange Sauce, Pork Brochette with Peanut sauce. All superb.
We'll be back.

We stayed on the campsite associated with the restaurant for two weeks and ate there 5 times. We also did numerous coffee and drinks visits as it is such a lovely setting by the millpond. An excellent welcome, particularly friendly for our young children. Casper and his team went beyond the call of duty to make sure we really enjoyed every meal. The duck a l'orange is particularly recommended!

Situated in a converted mill, next to a campsite on the outskirts of Pons, this is a very cosy restaurant and bar, the closest thing to a pub that one can find in the area. Caspar, the new host, is again very welcoming and offers good food at very reasonable prices in delightful settings, inside or on the terrace. Highly recommended.
