Lovely

I've been wanting to eat here for years and finally did last week. It is not what I had in mind but still delivered. It is in a stunning location but food could have matched the location. The service is lovely, and the food is lovely too - but there isn't that - xfactor.. Might be a lovely place... read more

We've been regular customers here for more than 10 years and can say it's rare for a place to be so consistently good, probably because the staff are professional and friendly, willing to offer alternatives if you really don't like 'pig's cheek' or want a veggie dish! It's sad to see negative comments when the place is so successful overall,... More

We live 2 kms from this restaurant and have not eaten there for 10 years, yesterday reminded us why. We found that most of our favourite restaurants in the area have decided to shut on a Wednesday (why??) so we ended up here. Shocking. The food inedible, the service bad, the staff rude. Le plus mal restaurant dans notre region.

The only thing that put me off (it was noticeable that another english couple took a photo of their main course ) was... More

We have had many excellent meals in Les Monards with very good cooking and service. The Restaurant is very popular with locals and Sundays are particularly busy. However, sometimes they accept too many covers - occasionally even wedding receptions - and the level of service can go down . Nevertheless I would recommend this restaurant for the authentic French atmosphere.... More

it was quieter than usual for a sunday but it was just before christmas day. A very atmostpheric restaurant off the beaten track - the staff are very welcoming- the food is good and there is plenty of it. I've heard that probably mid week lunch is the best time.

we had a lovely lunch today in this very pretty and atmospheric auberge. It appears to have received food awards almost every year since the 90's. IThe restaurant sits at the side of an inlet. The food was very rustic and well prepared, the plat du jour is four courses for 15 euros, very good value. The meat is cooked... More
