Went here for lunch on market day. Family-run and charming. Beautiful courtyard with very stylish table cloths! Food fresh and delicious and extremely reasonably priced. Really do not know how they do it. Why can't we have places like this in England!

The longest established restaurant in Olonzac, Claire and Pierre Vilchez know their trade and their market. We eat here mainly for special occasions, or if we feel like a change from our other choices. The patio garden is a particularly nice spot, and whilst the restaurant decor does not please some, I do not find it displeasing, but perhaps a... More

I am deeply disappointed by my meal here this evening. I hate to complain and so the only plus to this meal was that the starters were very nice and impressive portions. However, the 'fillet' beef was awful. It was very chewy and not pleasant to eat. When we complained about the food, the owner became very aggressive. She informed... More

This is a nice restaurant in a great town. Quite cheap, decent food, nice local wine, nothing to change your life but certainly a good place to eat. Quite wish there was a tripadvisor option between very good and average for this one. I went with very good because average seemed a little harsh - although, for me, for what... More

Below average meal we had in the area. The food was tasteless and the quality of meat and fish we ate there was poor. The beef was tough and elasticity and the fish had lot of bones and could not eat. We will never return to le Bel.

Have been here 4 times in the last 6 years, it seems to be the same menu every year. Tonight we had the €40.00 menu,same old melon amuse bouche, a very good 3 way fois gras, then a good veal chop with lovely cauliflower, but with a semi cooked potato, a fig, 1/2 an apple ,tomatoes and salad! It was... More

We have eaten here several times with friends over the years, because it is one of the "go-to" restaurants in Olonzac, but I can't say that I, or my husband, have ever enjoyed the food---maybe even worse than average. Bland. I don't know how anyone can find it excellent. We have refused to go back even if someone suggests it.... More

There are a few restaurants in Olonzac but this one has a really nice shaded courtyard. It's a relaxing, comfortable space with a good atmosphere. The service is good and the food excellent. The wine list has many local wines and the ones that hail from the small town of La Liviniere are my favourites. Well worth a visit
