Sat outside having lunch in the dappled shade under the trees by the river. Nice busy atmosphere. The food and service was good at reasonable prices. We had duck confit which was done perfectly with nice crisp skin. Recommended and will visit there again.

Found this place recommended in the Rough Guide. Only time this guide let us down. Disinterested staff. Entree was half an avocado stuffed with tuna. Problem was half of each avocado was brown, hard and inedible. Plat was a rice and sausage dish which tasted Ok but was nearly cold.

We live locally and probably eat here about twice a week. It's a cafe, open for breakfast (pastry and coffee) and lunch as well as coffee and drinks through the day and it is always busy - especially at lunchtime when the place is packed with local workmen who order the plat du jour and eat 3 course with coffee...

We once had really poor service at the Globe but gave it another try last summer and it was fine. Howevr we called in for a lunch one Friday recently and it was dreadful. My husband's meal arrived and was pretty disappointing but acceptable. My meal never arrived. I watched lots of locals arrive, p!ace orders and be served. The... More

Had lunch by the beautiful river at this well placed cafe. Fab location, quite busy inside and out. Small but reasonable menu and well priced. Sadly we did have to wait quite some time for both the menu and our meals. Think we were forgotten about as others who arrive after us were fed and gone before we received our... More

This cafe is right by the river and the old stone bridge. Very pretty location. We stopped for drinks and to take in the atmosphere. Wine was cheap. Staff friendly.

The Globe used to be a great place to eat, fabulous setting and the food/service/value was excellent. Unfortunately in recent years, it's very hit and miss. If you are going to eat here, the lunches tend to be better but the most recent meal I had in the evening was inedible. Its a shame as it used to be a... More

The service was excellent - waiter was so friendly and spoke a little English which helped us as we only speak a little French! We ordered the Plat de Jour which was fantastic, freshly cooked and a very large portion. We drank the local Galliac wine and had a very enjoyable afternoon under a lovely tree in a shady spot...

We had an appointment with our solicitors in Villefranche-de-Rouergue, and arrived (6 adults and 3 children) 12h45 at the Café du Globe which was packed and had no table free. The owner/manager urged a few locals to clear their table asap. They did and we thanked them. We had a quick but delicious lunch with some local wine and the... More

How many times in life are we let down by friends or family? We all want somebody or something we can rely on. Le Globe is just that something. I've been using this cafe for seven years now and never once has it let me down. It has recently had a makeover but still retains its old town charm. Situated... More
