“This attractive restaurant is not really worth a visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2014

We thought the that La Farigoulette looked very attractive which, indeed, it is. However, the service, even though the waiters were pleasant, was so lackadaisical as to cause us to leave before the smallest member of the party had had her sweet - she too was fed up trying to attract attention. The brandade (a fish dish of potato and salt cod) had a nice taste but was absolutely full of enormous fish bones and even parts of the fish backbone which should have been obvious when the dish was being made. The mineral water was shockingly expensive and the wine mediocre. Altogether the whole atmosphere was distinctly unprofessional, and even when we were paying the person at the till could not really even be bothered interrupting his conversation with colleagues to attend to us.

“Very friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2014

To be fair we only stopped by for coffee and croissants (two days running) but we really enjoyed how friendly the staff were. Even though our French is not too good they stuck with us and we had a couple of enjoyable visits. The coffee was a good price too!

“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2014

Food was excellent, service great. This restaurant shares the centre of the village/town along with other eating houses, but lacked a little atmosphere, but not sure well!!

“A fresh start”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

La Farigoulette is under new ownership since last month . They provide delicious simple food made with fresh ingredients as well as sandwiches and ice creams . Today we had the excellent 'plat du jour '- roasted daurade with small crevettes accompanied by a portion of ratatouille and of rice ..Homemade deserts, a smiling service and the amazing views from the terrace made it a truly memorable meal.

“I am surprised by the negative reviews”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

Staying at the Bastide, see my review of their awful restaurant, we had breakfast and dinner here. The staff were very good on both occasions. This is not haute cuisine, but you would not, or should not expect that. What we had was good honest well cooked food in a beautiful setting.
