“Was recommended by two delightful local shop-owners (one of whom actually made the reservation for us).”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Having dined at Miretti last night, and having now read Tripadvisor's reviews; here is my opinion. Yes, the decor is probably a little dated, and the waitress was very definitely the matriarch of the establishment; but the standard of the food and service was excellent. There were obviously many locals dining there, which to me is a recommendation in itself. It is a family-run business, and as such, has a friendly and intimate feel that can not be experienced in a larger restaurant. We would definitely go there again.

“oh_those_sauces”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

We had a wonderful dinner here. The sevice was excellent and the Lady who runs the place was one of life's most interesting people. The wait staff are very well trained and helpful to those without a good grasp of the french language. The food was glorious. The sauces were spectacular. Had some great wine too!

“Le Miretti gascon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

This restaurant was at the end of the street near our hotel. We were delighted to see it open on the Monday night of our stay. Delicious food, I had snails and my partner the french onion soup and he followed with confit duck. As good as eating in France.

“A taste of France”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

We were very keen to go here, having read all of the reviews. Unfortunately for them - the smell in the street was dreadful on the night we went there (from the boucherie up the road?) and if we had not read so many reviews, we could have been put off. No smell in the restaurant and fabulous service.

Lovely food - I had coquille st jacques and a fabulous fillet steak. Bill for four entres, four mains and two bottles of wine 30000 francs. Smell outside pushed it down to VG.
