Stayed in a house near the auberge so popped in most days either for a coffee or wine whilst making use of the free wifi. Always very welcoming and well frequented. Great to sit outside in the sunshine. Evening meals good enough if a bit pricey. Used by both locals and visitors.

As the title suggests, a very average experience here. Staff were ok, food was ok, location and atmosphere were ok. Nothing special and we came away feeling, well, ok. I guess the telling sign is we ate here on our first night in Vouvant and didn't return, choosing other places instead. Quite expensive, we thought, for the quality of the... More

The service was the worst I've ever encountered in a restaurant. The food was fine, nothing special. Certainly not worth the money we paid for it. Very disappointing. I love France but find the french (generally) so unwelcoming. Such a pity.

Since the change of ownwership the food is more adventurous and as the clientele is mainly French this makes a change! Sevice is good and the staff are friendly. We eat here a lot both in the restaurant and outside.

Ate here whilst staying locally in a lovely house by the river. The waitress had a mobile clamped to her ear and served us two lamb meals how anyone can make lamb taste abysmal is surely an art form but they managed to! Sad and disappointing we wished we had ate at one of the other more friendly cafes.

Visited this restaurant on a quiet Tuesday on a wet February evening. Had dinner with family and felt very welcome. Food and service was excellent and reasonably priced. The server spoke fantastic English and was happy to accommodate our broken French with patience and courtesy. They have menus in English and French and offer an a la carte menu as... More

We had not planned to eat in Vouvant only visit this lovely village, but with it raining and lunch time, so we found this restaurant and decided to have lunch. We were not disappointed, on entering we were greeted by a charming lady who showed us to our table, past a lovely open fire, which cheered us up after walking... More

Visited here Tuesday night with friends even though it was late September still warm enough to sit outside. The service was friendly if a little leisurely however we weren't in a rush so it suited. The food was freshly cooked o expect to wait. It wasn't cordon blue however everything we had was flavoursome. The desserts equally as impressive ,... More

We had dinner here as a family of four. It was an ok experience but nothing really stood out for us in terms of cuisine or service or value. The moules frites and pizza were ok but I have had much better in the UK. The kids meal was disappointing....deep fried beige food without a vegetable in sight. I had... More
