We had lunch here in early September just before visiting the gardens. There was a huge value to us in that it's right next to the gardens and we had a full day planned. Our experience was wonderfully pleasant, eating outside in the middle of a beautiful garden surrounding the restaurant. The lettuce salads were crisp and fresh and the... More

Visited this restaurant after visiting Monet's gardens and were seated outside where we were able to enjoy the plants and flowers whilst we ate lunch. We were served quickly despite being busy and did not have long to wait for our meal. I chose an omelette with frites and both were delicious, in fact the omelette was so large I... More

Do not bother going here. All we wanted was a cup of decent coffee, not exactly a difficult request and especially in France. We were told to go to the takeaway counter for drinks only where there were about 3 tables, fortunately one was empty as we wanted to sit down after walking around Monet's house and garden and especially...

Dear Madame, The french law decrees the chair absence for the take away service. Otherwise it is eat in service and taxes are not the same. It explains that glasses are disposable in order to let consumers go where they want, even in their car. Regarding the prohibitive prices you mentionned, 2.60€ for a cream-coffee remains reasonnable. Nevertheless we were... More

I had the smoked salmon and crawfish tail salad which was outstanding with fresh greens, raw mushrooms, white asparagus and a killer dressing. With that a good bottle of Côtes du Rhône wine followed by the poire sorbet with poire william over the top. This restaurant is so unbelievable I hate to share! So far it's pretty much undiscovered but... More

A good choice of dishes, and a very relaxing place after walking around the gardens. Sitting under the green umbrellas, sipping a cold drink, and looking at more beautiful flowers. Bliss!

€24 for coffee and cake for two is just not worth it, particularly when the coffee wasn't even very nice. Adequate service. There are heaps of other places to go just a little further down the road.

This is a good place for a quick lunch in between visits to the museum and Monet Foundation. You can't beat the location. It's a bit pricey, though. The Quiche Lorraine is popular and filling. The salads are ok. The daily fish special was delicious and original. Friendly service. Hordes of tourists. Kudos to the staff for smiling and greeting... More
