Great demonstration that food doesn't need to be complicate to be great! Probably one of the best menu we had this month. The owners are fantastic and spent a great deal of time explaning where the products came from. Highly recomended!

Very friendly husband and wife team. Food cooked to perfection, you are not rushed, this is a very relaxing restaurant to have your evening meal. Food is very fresh and cooked to order. Booking is a must as it gets very busy, there were a least 10 couples and families turned away while we were there, it is a very... More

Ate at the Billot for lunch with my wife on July 7th. We were welcomed by the pationate and friendly owner couple. The Billot is located oposite the local market serve a small selection of dishes made from fresh ingredients extremely well prepared. If you are foody, this is the best restaurant in town.

We were here last year and loved it so returned again in expectation. We were not disappointed. We had a cold beef and salami starter that was amazing, then had beautiful steaks for our mains. The wine was beautiful too. We sat in the outdoor terrace which was very cozy. The staff were lovely too. We will certainly return again... More

Nice terrace, friendly service. Menu good especially for meat and fish lovers. Salmon entree was fresh, but not especially tasty. Envied my husband's charcuterie-plate, which was big enough to share. Tartar beef left me a bit "cold", maybe a touch too much mustard and the meat could have been more finely chopped. Also it was huge, could have shared, there's... More

Run by a husband and wife team, a great restaurant with an outside terrace when the sun's out. Friendly service and good food - possibly on the pricey side for what we had, although France just seems to be quite a bit more expensive than it used to be. We were there on a Friday night and the restaurant was... More

We recently visited Le Billot twice, in May, which is still nicely off-season, so minus the crowds. I would still however recommend to book in advance, as there is only the one service. The steak tartare is excellent and recommended, if that's your thing, particularly as it's 'au couteau' (cut by knife, rather than minced). The Pavé de boeuf was... More

After reading all of the really positive reviews on TripAdvisor we went to Le Billot with high expectations - we weren't disappointed! First, if you're planning to go during the holiday season, you absolutely need to book in advance - the restaurant only has one service and it is always full. We saw countless groups of hungry people being turned... More
