Good restaurant and a good location for parking.

First of all this restaurant is in a good location so if you are travelling by car there is ample parking space at a public car park 2 mins walking distance from the restaurant. The restaurant is easy on the eye and you have a little courtyard at the back if you wish to eat outside. The menu is... read more

Walked round the centre of Poitiers on a busy Saturday night,looking for somewhere to eat when we stumbled on this restaurant.What a great find.Sat outside in a pretty little courtyard,and had an excellent meal. We ordered the three course menu,but this turned out to be 6 courses.Started with some little nibbles,and this was followed by an "amuse bouche"of lobster bisque... More

This is a great restaurant, took advantage of their lunch menu, it was chicken beautifully done to perfection and dessert was peaches and ice cream. Very reasonable and the service was great.

Very nice food but be warned, the menu apart from the menu de jour is very expensive. We were the only guests stupid enough not to have the set lunch, 93 euro for 2 courses, one aperitif and one glass of wine each was a bit steep for the two of us. The food was excellent and well presented but... More

We were seated in the courtyard next to a 18 foot tower of some antiquity. I noticed carvings of a chained boar, hawks catching fish etc. and when I asked the waiter, he casually mentioned that the Roman arena was near!! After I had fallen off the chair at the casual acceptance of a Roman ruin in the back garden,... More

Vingelique has been my favorite restaurant in Poitiers for many years now, and I have become a patron, visiting at least once every time I stay in Poitiers, which is at least twice a month. The food is always excellent, service is friendly, and the prices still remain reasonable, especially when you have 'l'ardoise du soir', a delicious 3-course menu,... More

Vingelique was the last of the good restaurants we visited on this trip to France. It is conveniently located with about a thousand other restaurants along the Rue Carnot, not far from where we stayed. After having been turned down (due to crowding) at another place we came here and were a bit concerned as there appeared to be only... More

Nothing special from the outside but lovely courtyard within. Service welcoming and friendly, also very helpful with gluten free issues. Decent menu. The lobster entree was a delight and particularly generous. Overall an excellent meal.

Take the daily menu (lunch time) and add the 'café gourmant' at the end. Quick and tasteful. Close to parkings, in the centre of the city.
