This looks lovely from outside and the decor inside is attractive. The service is erratic and the food was very disapppointing. I chose a special of lentil veloute (Puy lentils!) which was served with mussels and croutons. However, it was cold and quite disappointing. The main course of an entrecote with daupinoise poatoes was inedible. The waitress commented on it... More

We tried this restaurant for both late lunch and dinner. Both times the young staff were excellent. Happy, smiling,helpful young men brought us our menus, answered our questions and recommended choices. Whilst the appearance of some parts of the salad looked tired the flavours were great. The potato dauphinois served with the duck was exceptional. Wine prices are great, we... More

Seems to be run by very inexperienced people. Servers were all very pleasant but the food was industrial, not reheated enough (tepid), not fresh at all. Good beer though.

We were staying at the Ibis styles which offers a 10% discount to guests at this restaurant. It was easier on our first night in le Puy to eat here and not search around. The meal itself was tasty, but the staff were more inclined to chat with each other than serve the meals! The price www not bad, but... More

It mostly features Alsacian type selcetions along with duck and burgers with selections of the famous le Puy lentiles added, even buns made with them. The service was excellent, our meals good and it was full of walkers starting on the Camino... More

Staff were great, but the menu was geared for short stay visitors. 10% discount card from our hotel encouraged us to try it out. The menu had groups of dishes, but eventually they were all similar. By the end of our week, 3 visits were more than enough, and each one was worse than the last. Disappointed.

Dear Marydoll14, Thanks you for your comment on tripadvisor. Our taverne offers 3 different menus each with 3 starters, 3 main courses and 3 desserts. In order to answer all budgets and customer desires. If, however, you prefer to order "à la carte" it would also be possible.... You could dip into our many specialties, salads, meats and fresh fish.... More

Meals served according to this well-known Brasserie chain standard but overall quality level is medium-low for the food. Pleasant overall atmosphere and staff high-efficiency/courtesy

Carafe of house wine good for the price, but the main course was rather thin and had a massed produced feel to it. Service was good, waitresses knew what they were doing. 10% discount for guests who stay in the Ibis Styles hotel. Next time would prefer to go further afield and try something new. Would be good in summer... More

We ate here twice during our visit to Le Puy, once for dinner and once for lunch. The restaurant is conveniently located on a nice plaza with outdoor seating and a fountain, attached to the IBIS Styles Hotel.(if you stay at the hotel, you get a 10% discount on your meal). We were pleasantly surprised at both the service and... More
