Stopped off for lunch whilst on a cycling trip. It was a little late in the afternoon for lunch but the restaurant accommodated us all. A little disappointed the tables outside were not set out apart from a couple of small ones as it would have been nice to sit in the sunshine. There is a perfectly formed courtyard available....

Good food, reasonably priced. Friendly staff as well. It does get busy so worth reserving a table beforehand.

seemed like the only restaurant open that day, it was not a bad option. The service was great but the food was just so and so. In you are in Aivault, this is probably the best choice.

From a distance we thought this was yet another pizza/fast food cafe. We were wrong! Fantastically tasty local produce served by excellent waiting staff. Excellent facilities, varied menu and keen pricing. Situated in the pretty town of Airvault, Le 12 Restaurant made a welcome break from our site seeing. So much so we stayed for over two hours and enjoyed... More

For lunch or evening with food sourced locally. Even the coca cola . Only three choices but quality through and through . The staff are friendly and many locals eat out here regularly . The toilets are immaculate.

We went on a Sunday when all they do is pizzas! Thin based and they were ok. Trouble we had was our French is very basic and the waitress spoke no English what so ever but apart from that ok

Really lovely local produce, well presented and beautifully cooked- good for families because although there are more gourmet options there's a great selection of pizzas etc too- great value!

Visited this restaurant for the second time with our grandson. Felt it was much improved since the last time we visited, just after it opened. Ate downstairs which was lovely, bit like a cellar with beams etc. Staff were very friendly and the meal was excellent. Our grandson thought it was the best meal he'd ever had in France. The...

We visited this restaurant between Christmas and New Year. Friday lunchtime and the place was full. We ate upstairs - which in the summer opens out onto a charming terraced garden. We had the lunchtime set menu - 3 choices for each course plus coffee - 14.50 euros. The courses were slightly eclectic but the food was delicious. The staff... More

After being recommended by the owners of our gite, we stopped in Airvault at Le 12 for a set lunch. We opted for the tartine of chorizo and tomato, with a lovely salad dressing, and then the saumonette with yummy leeks and white sauce. We didn't know what Saumonette was until we got home and googled it and it turned... More
