Unlike some of the reviews I have read and having eaten there a number of years, I find the restaurant has greatly improved and the food is great . For year end the restaurant was always very full but i found the service to be efficient

Our usual eating place in Bagnoles was closed so like so many of us we entered the usual lottery where are we're going to eat. Driving away we passed The Bistrot Gourmaid all lit up, it looked so nice on the spur of the moment we decided to eat there. I've read one or two of the reviews and to... More

Having eaten here for a number of years .. each time it gets worse ...the Hotel attracts elderly people ........the staff are slow.. food is ok but far from exceptional and far from gourmand ......would I return .. certainly not..

A hotel restaurant in the centre of the ville. Good outlook and good food. Booking is advised as it seems to be popular with tourists and locals.

On a Monday evening while most of the restos in Bagnoles were closed this turned out to be a good choice for a meal. There were three reasonably priced "formules" to choose from and the choice of food available would suit most palates. I had the interestingly named Pot au Feu de la Mer which looked nothing like a Pot... More

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.

Rescued our flagging spirits when it appeared that the only place in town open,was a pizzeria.... After finding that tout Bagnoles was shut for the Christmas holiday the Bistro loomed into view on a freezing cold day like a mirage. Warm welcoming and dog friendly,with an interesting menu leaning to french classics,it hit every spot Sea food ravioli,followed by a... More
