A very popular restaurant so make sure you book, even if you are a hotel guest. A wonderful menu with beautiful presentation and very fair prices.

We ate here last night, December 23, when we couldn't find any of our usual restaurants open. The bistrot is indeed a bistrot, with bare formica tables, paper napkins and modern art on the walls, and the menu is indeed gourmand, with classic French cuisine. I went with the 'complete' menu and had magret de canard on a bed of... More

We have a shared ownership of a farmhouse near Bagnoles, and we almost always visit this hotel restaurant for lunch on Sundays. The welcome from the owners is always cordial, and the a la carte menu has sufficient choices for my wife and me. The scallops and langoustines make a particularly delicious dish for my wife, and I usually have... More

Unlike Rosemary m, three of us had some exceptional food. From their a la carte we had roast lamb with kidneys, roast lamb without the kidneys and roast duck breast. All were beautifully cooked and served with vegetables and French fries also very good. The puddings were even better, I had the fresh fruit compote heated in a casserole. I... More

My husband had the monkfish which was dry and overcooked and I had roast lamb with veal kidneys which were like rubber balls ,completely inedible.Told the waitress when... More

Good service and very good food. Would return reasonably priced. Very clean and set out well. It is right in the middle of the town and easy to walk to.

Interesting flavors and twists on some traditional Normandy dishes (and some not particularly traditional). We had kind of a duck rillette (shredded duck on sweet potatoe and regular potatoe, a mix of appetizers (including a devine cauliflower soup), escargot and morel samosas and a lovely pork curry. Really enjoyed it. Good wine list, and a very attentive and hard working... More

This place was great, it's right by the fountains in the middle of Bagnoles, so you can take in the atmosphere of the town and do some people watching. The fountains are lit up at night, it's very romantic. The service was very good and we didn't have to wait long for either our table or our food.7 I had... More
