Thank goodness we ignored a few of the bad reviews! We tried the plat du jour. It included a starter, main, cheese, dessert and coffee for just 16 euros! All well cooked... Although, you may need to be a little adventurous in your experimenting of food... We found ourselves faced with a half of a pigs head for main course!... More

We have just eaten lunch here on a Friday. The restaurant is very busy and clearly a popular venue. We both ordered meat dishes (duck breast and lamb chops) and the portions were huge and tasty, if a little salty for our own tastes. Service was good and the house wine great quality compared to others we have experienced over... More

A typical aubergine, limited menu, , but all fresh local produce. Staff friendly and professional and food superb, good value for money, we had an apero which came with ample toasts and rillettes so we didn't order a starter. Either book or get there very early.

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 to... 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.

We cycled over to have a luncheon . We sat inside due to the poor weather. The food was very good value being some 38 Euros for 2 full menu du jour of 4 courses including wine. 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
