Broad selection of tasty dishes in a bustling, bright environment.

Just next to the Tribunal (and one of the loveliest historic spaces in Poitiers), this lively restaurant was packed with people eating inside and out when I arrived at 12:30. The menu had everything from traditional French food (gigot d'agneau) to Thai (rice noodle salad with chicken news and... read more

Nice and joyful place, it is a nice place for a business lunch or a celebration with your friends. The food is fairly good.

Located slightly outside of the town center, La Gazette is a lively place that makes you feel right at home. The food was good and the service very friendely.

A regular haunt for me, always tip top service, good and well above average "brasserie" style food. Sunday brunch excellent. Nicely situated in the heart of the old town, just opposite the ancient court house where Elionor of Aquitaine was married to Henry Plantagenet. A recomended stop off point if you're visiting Poitiers.

We often eat at this restaurant when in Poitiers, just love it. It has a nice terrace outside by the court and a nice interior with unusual bottle lampshade. The food is very good, often the plat du jour is excellent, so much so that it sells out really quickly because the locals know what good value it is! On... More

They had a wine special offer on - Costieres de Nimes - so we tried it as we like a light red. Absolutely excellent!! The menu was varied, my wife had an oriental chicken dish and I had a home-made burger. Both very good. Total bill, including a beer and a glass of bubbly beforehand was abou 55 Euros, so... More

And excellent service. We happened to be there on what must have been their busiest night of the year - and the staff worked incredibly hard to serve people on time. lovely

We've eaten at La Gazette before, September 2013, and really enjoyed the meal, and the staff were very pleasant indeed. Earlier this month we passed it and decided to have a coffee and sit outside. It was 14:20, 10 minutes until end of service, only 2 of the tables were occupied and we sat ourselves in the corner. A waiter... More

When you live in a country area in France you have to accept that for shopping you drive quite a distance and need to choose your town in advance. Today we chose Poitiers for its good shops and in the knowledge that we could eat at La Gazette once again for lunch. We both ordered Magret de Canard which was... More

First impressions from pavement level where that this was a fairly ordinary pavement cafe/restaurant but when we sat down and the food started to arrive this was very definitely not the case. The internal fit out is lovely and the food gorgeous. I can particularly recommend the taster desert, but the steak and duck were lovely too. The menu may... More
