“tons of food at a great price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We choose this place becuase it was in the middle of our trip to Spain, straight of the highway and next to some hotels... and it was so good, we reserved for our trip back home.
Don't expect any fancy tables or waiters... though there is indoor seating, during summer everything happens outdoors on a big covered terrace. The srvice is simple, but the food is great, ranging for oven-baked pizzas to real authentic local food. If you're only interested in a quick small bite, don't go there: the pizzas are huges, the portions of every other meal gigantic, including the ice-cream desserts. We discovered a local cheese which was excellent and some great house wine to go with it. Just make sure you reserve before you wonna go... local people tend to enjoy this restaurant as much as tourists, so it gets filled up pretty quickly.

“A short stroll from our hotel....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

We were just stopping for one night at the Ace Hotel and they recommended the Auberge as a good place to eat.So glad they did as it was a fun evening with beautifully cooked local food and a good selection of inexpensive wines...would highly recommend you make a detour and try this place....we certainly will the next time we are travelling down that way!

“Excellent value with cheerful service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2011

We went on a fairly quiet evening and found excellent service - cheerful, happy to explain the dishes and to advise us that the portions were large, and even to wrap up some of the excellent mountain ham that we could not finish so we could take it for a picnic next day. The food was excellent and the price reasonable. A few minutes' walk from the Etap and Ace hotels and a much more authentic experience than the Buffalo Grill.
