Absolutely fantastic little restaurant serving traditional French food. We went with family who live nearby. The menu is small - just one or two choices for each course which are changed daily. One price for four courses (the cheese selection is particularly good), also including unlimited wine! Incredibly friendly service too. I understand that people travel from all around to... More

Love this place! Easy going, atmospheric, amusing staff with incredible memories for orders, food is simple but traditional and extremely flavoursome. There is only one main meal per day but they dont disappoint. The lamb on Wednesdays is sensational - tender, juicy and delicious. For starters in the past, I have had foie gras terrine, grilled eggplant with tomato and... More

We read about this restaurant in the travel section of a newspaper during our trip planning and called for reservations. The restaurant is a beautiful setting on a country road. The menu our night was escargots, chicken with pasta, cheese, and desserts (we had creme brûlée and apple cake). The cheese tray was divine, escargots and bread delicious. The chicken... More

We enjoyed our meal but thought it expensive. We had reserved a table earlier in the day . Very limited menu, choice of snails or pastry filled with salt cod for starters, chicken for main course . Cheese, then good selection of desserts. Wine included for Euro 57 a head. We feel it would have been better value with a... More

Having read some of the previous reviews we thought must give this Bistro a try. They offer a fixed price 4 course set menu (choice of starter and desserts only) including wine with your meal. We went on their 'chicken night'.. The starters of snails and foie gras were ok. Very simple and not much effort in the presentation.. The... More

Let Bistro Du Paradou is a place that my wife and I first visited 20 years ago. We keep returning and are never disappointed. They offer a set menu which includes wine which keeps things simple. Being off the beaten track, the clientele appear to be locals. We have never had difficulty with communication as our waiters always speak English.... More

Fabulous. A set four course menu for lunch that includes wine. Great atmosphere and delicious food. Everything was perfect. We were beyond full when we left but happy! They were closed the next week for holidays, otherwise we definitely would have been back again. An extra bonus is there is an easy parking lot adjacent to the restaurant which is... More

Another great dinner at Paradou, service, food and atmosphere was fantastic. Everything about Bistro Paradou is above and beyond expectation, although a fixed four course menu , they usually can offer an alternative if needed and the menu price includes unlimited wine. Would suggest that you phone or visit the restaurant a few days in advance to enquire what will... More

We were lucky just staying down the road from this restaurant with a friend. Everyone in the area recommends a meal there, even the taxi drivers. Yes it was great, escargots followed by lamb (perfectly pink!) The cheese platter is to die for and you can easily overindulge. If in the area you must go.
