Stopped during an art exhibition, very tranquil very french bar in the heart of mediaeval Parthenay. Loved it

We had the misfortune to stop at this place whilst cycling La Velo Francette to La Rochelle. The woman running the place on the day we visited is the most unsuited person to a customer facing role I have ever encountered. We sat down for...coffees which were nasty and made with UHT milk and when we asked if we could refill our water bottles we had to endure this lengthy whinge about how much she despises people who ask for tap water in her bar. She sent us on a goose chase to a nearby water fountain that wasn't working and then begrudgingly filled our water bottles with tap water and tried to suggest we should make a donation for this despite the fact we were already paying customers who had just bought the worst cup of coffee we had of our whole holiday. She radiated hostility. Needless to say my advice is avoid this place like the plague.More

Stumbled across this place at the foot of the beautiful gatehouse castle at lunchtime on the whit bank holiday - one of the only places open but such a nice place! Friendly hostess and great home made food - a fixed menu but beautifully done....Relaxed atmosphere too!More

Valerie served a delicious tartiflette for the plat du jour. Everything is home made daily. Shame it was wet or we could have sat in the garden. L'estaminet is small and quaint - a must visit for at least a coffee or drink while exploring...the Port St. Jacques in ParthenayMore

We were stuck for somewhere to eat on Thurs after our dance class and chose this restaurant just while walking down the street.. Food was delicious though not the biggest steak in the world was beautifully cooked, waiter charming. Good value.

Situated on the historic and picturesque Rue de la Vau Saint-Jacques, and right next to to the impressive town gates, this lovely little restaurant is the perfect place to stop for lunch or a relaxing glass of rosé. Valerie, the proprietor, is extremely welcoming, and...it is the the kind of place where you find yourself easily striking up conversations with the people at the next table, locals and visitors alike. The food is made from all fresh ingredients (the dish of the day changes according to availability of local produce) and served with care and warmth at affordable prices. There is an outside patio for when the weather is good. To me, this restaurant captures the spirit of this sleepy beautiful town, that is not in a hurry to get anywhere very fast. Slow down and enjoy! Note: Closed on Saturdays and Wednesday evenings.More

Near the ancient Porte de San Jaques this unlikely little place turned out to be a gem. The proprietor cooked all her own food fresh, recipes learned from her grandmother in traditional French style. Relaxed, welcoming and quirky with delicious food, promptly served. What a...find! Don't miss it - and have a look at the museum opposite while you are at it.More
