Lovely Monique!

We loved Chai Monique for a coffee during the market, for lunch and for a light and easy dinner. Her menu is creative and delicious, and there is not a better place to meet and make friends. You'll see Le Bugue's most prominent citizens stop in for a glass of wine and a visit while enjoying the... read more

Chez Monique is really nice, but it is so expensive. I payed 18 euros for two cups of coffee and two slices of gateau. Much better to cross the road to the cafe with the Orange awning and enjoy your coffee with the beautiful homemade cakes made by Xavier for much less money sitting outside overlooking the river Vezere or...

If you want a table, you need to book. A delightful small restaurant and you can see the works of local artists at the same time. Well worth a visit if you can there, Wines are also sold. Not open Wednesdays nor Saturdays.

Moniques is one of the friendliest and most gracious hosts I have come across. She runs her tiny Bar a Vin almost single handed and pays great attention to detail. She knows her wines and always gives you a taste first to make sure it is what you want. The food is delicious. We went twice in the 3 days... More

Superb, freshly cooked food. A rare experience of fine dining and wonderful service. Not very often the chef makes an appearance at your table to check all is perfect! Highly recommended to people who appreciate good food.

Monique is an excellent host. She speaks excellent English. She recommended us a lovely wine and served a really nice side dish of tasty snacks to compliment the wine.

Stuck in Le Bugue for lunch, don't want to break your budget or drown in calories? Chai Monique, on the main street (rue de Paris) just a few shops up from the roundabout, is the place for you. Originally styled as a tea shoppe, it has become more of a wine bar with light dishes. And what dishes! This time... More

Not a bad little place but erratic service. Last visit we waited half an hour for pretty simple cold platter.
