“Simple, delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Our french is limited and the waitress spoke very fast so we ordered our plat du jour with some trepidation, not knowing what we were going to get. The simple regional chicken dish that arrived at the table was delicious and judging by the number of locals eating lunch, everything that is served must be good. This place isn't pretty but the food is excellent and the service efficient.

“Champagne...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

The Cafe is one of the few places to eat in Hautvillers. In general the meal was memorable because of the champagne and a few good appetizers. The steak and fries were ok. Worth it if you are with a group and do not fancy to go to Reims or Epernay but keep on trying Champagne in the area.

“Expensive horrible food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

Everybody is greeted with an automatic loud 'Bonjour'. It was the first and only place in the Champagne region where we didn't feel like we were treated in a good way.

We sit on their terrace (nice terrace by the way) to have a drink and something to nibble on. The waitress didn't misunderstood our English quite some times. But she did try to converse in English with us.

During the day they serve a buffet. They have about 8 things to choose from. A couple of different kind of quiche. But please skip those because they do not taste good at all! The different kinds of meats are a little bit better then the quiche.

If anybody knows what the white meat with orange strings is, then please let me know.

“As Good as Could Be Expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

As far as I can tell, there are only two places to eat anything in Hautvillers--here and the Restaurant Abbaye. I had already eaten there and while it was okay, I didn't really think it was worth the money. Or, rather, I had had a very nice meal the night before and was just looking for a simple lunch after a hike.

I reserved, which helped as they were busy. But I reserved for late in the lunch hour (14h00), so they were already pretty much in the weeds when we got there.

Only two items left (a salad and a steak), but fine--that's what we wanted/got.

Service did pick up a bit--they weren't idiots, but just swamped and doing the best they could.

Lunch for two with a glass of wine and a Diet Coke (no desserts/coffees): 39EUR.
