It was a last minute decision to have lunch in Moustiers when we finally managed to visit La Cantine. We have been living in the area for a few years and always wanted to try the place so this time we chose it for a birthday lunch. The lovely terrace, creatively placed along the old cobbled street leading along the... More

We had an excellent dinner at La Cantine the first night we were in Moustier Sainte-Marie during the third week of November. The service was very good and we had a great meal, it was so good that we went back the next night. Our expectations were very high however our second meal there did not compare with the first...

Very tiny but good food. We had the pork tenderloin medallions. They could have been cooked a little less but the Roquefort sauce was terrific.

This small restaurant and cozy has great food and service. The hamburger was very large and came with great fries. My husband had a salad that was good size and everything was very fresh. The house wine was very good.

We travelled as a group of 10 and stumbled upon this little restaurant by chance. We returned the next night we enjoyed it so much. Food is unpretentious, honest and tasty - just the way French bistro food should be I think. Run by a friendly young couple and all the better for it.

Stopped there by chance and had one of the best meals during our 2 weeks trip. Actually the food was so good we went to say thank you personally to the chef. Service was very attentive as well.

We stopped by this restaurant because it looked cute and though the menu didn't have many options, they fit our taste. The burger was very tasty, fries crunchy and handmade and the pork file mignon was also good. Service was friendly but much slower than we would have liked (it's a small place). In general a good option if you... More

We happened by La Cantine by chance and ended up with a really nice meal. We sat at their outdoor deck, which has a nice overlook of the village. Our waitress was a delight and helped make the whole experience fun. Good simple dishes that were a nice break from heavier fare at the village's dressier restaurants.
