Someone advised me a while ago that to find a good place to eat is France is to follow the locals: they'll lead you to a place serving good food at a reasonable price. Le Delice, a friendly and welcoming restaurant/bar on the edge of the village, is indeed such a place, being frequented by locals and visitors both to... More

There are also several different priced formula menus plus a la carte for the adults. The food was lovely and the service was efficient and really friendly, which meant the children were not...

We tried this restaurant as we wanted a simple, economy French meal for a party of seven on a limited budget. The front room is a bar which leads into a pleasant dining room. Arriving at 19:00 on Friday evening we were the first diners present. We hadn't booked but a table was available. At this time we became a... More

The food was really top class and the welcome very friendly - they obviously don't go out of their way for tourists but ironically that's what makes it so great for us (well me anyway)! 6 of us, with poor French, turned up having 'reserved' that morning to a warm welcome great service freshly pepared food and lovely atmosphere -...

We arrived to eat here on a Sunday evening. The Patron and his team had catered earlier in the day for a huge family party, but were open for dinner as usual. We were the first clients to arrive that evening (just after 7pm), but within 30 minutes, the place was full. The food was simple, good quality, and served... More
