Good value, good food, good service

...all you need for a great evening out. Seafood starter excellent as was the steak. Lovely garden at the back, don't be put off by the bar area you walk through to get to the restaurant.

We loved our meal at this place and found it excellent value for money. An authentic rustic French restaurant for lunch in a lovely village.

We visited in late June and sat in the rear courtyard. Ordered the middle menu, melon and ham starter is a whole melon, lots of dried ham and a glass of Muscat. Charcuterie starter is a very good selection including boudon noir-enough for a main course. House wine perfectly good.

Typical small French restaurant. Food is good to great. Weekday lunch is best - three course meal plus 1/4 liter of local wine (which is great!) for Euro 12.90.

I've been visiting St Chinian for many years and Cafe de la Paix has always been my favourite for good food, value for money and, especially, the lovely garden. Like other reviewers, I too have experienced the "solemn" service but we happily traded this for the overall advantages. Now it's all changed as the principal waiter has retired after many... More

We arrived on spec just as the staff were having their evening meal, so had a short wait in the bar. It was a lovely warm evening so we were delighted to be led through the restaurant and out into the courtyard beyond. This was a large walled area which incorporated (I think) 4 mature trees, standing 4 square and... More

Good casual restaurant at back of the main bar in St Chinian. Simple food, but good. Service Ok, but very French!

If you are confident enough to walk through the PMU bar, you will find a lovely courtyard at the back with several tables for dinner. The menu was very good value and the cooking really pretty good. The portions are big (my husband ordered melon and cured ham and it was a whole melon with plenty of ham and a... More
