We were stuck for choice - all the other restaurants in the area were shut for the day. Searching TA we found this one was open. Sat outside on a sunny day and had decent, if not exciting lunch. My steak was pretty well cooked...More

Dear Sir, I'm sorry your dinner in our restaurant did not please you. We make daily efforts to satisfy our customers but we do not always succeed. Indeed, our terrace is located at the edge of a road and near a parking lot, but I...More

It is both a restaurant and wine shop. You can pick a bottle and they will open it for you to have with lunch/dinner. Plenty of great local wines to choose from and both food and wine were very reasonably priced. It is family friendly...More

Hello, Thank you for your message, it's very important for us. You have dinner at the Comptoir an unusual day (specialy in august), because in the other months, our clientele is 80% localI !... Best regards. Anne-Marie GALINEAU

My husband and I visited this restaurant on our last evening in France. It was quite an unusual design concept, with boxes of wine interspersed with tables. However, service was good and our food was delicious. See photos of our starters: lovely home made fresh...More

Came to this place for dinner on a recommendation from Philippe & Sylvie (our Air B&B hosts). Lovely place. Castillon wine everywhere! It's both a wine shop and a full-service restaurant. We opted for the 3-course meal. The duck (canard) was the best starter --...More

We stopped here for a fabulous 3 course lunch if was very reasonably priced and the food was delicious! We had the fish of the day, veggie meal and the veal. It’s located in a very small town.

We liked this small bistrot so much we went back three times - which we never do! Their tartare de boeuf rivals one in Amsterdam for the best ever. The veal chops were thick, glazed on the outside, pink inside, moist and flavorful. The andouillette...More

Splendid restaurant especially on sunny days. Fixed price menus are excellent value and quality. Seems mean to avoid wine list but house choices are really good. Indoors you eat amidst displays of local wines so not dull. Staff multi lingual as are clientele.
