This restaurant located near the main square is well known for its traditional local cuisine. We took the menu (Gourmand (32€). Each course was a delight. The service is also excellent. The restaurant is also quite so we really spent a great time.

Truly authentic and pleasant food, we tried some different restaurant during our week in Poitiers and it's the one you should try if you juste have to try one. The restaurant is composed of a serie of little calm and cozy rooms, in the city center between the Blossac parc and the town hall.

Had lunch here midweek on a trip into Poitiers, it is truly authentic, the staff are welcoming and the food is excellent. The lunch time menu is excellent value. The restaurant is a short walk from the main square and the other main restaurants and the outside is a little dated, which may put a few tourists off but go... More
