Not feeling in the mood for gluten free risks I came to this little place for some much needed food. I was hungry enough to eat a cow and saw just a few gluten free options on the menu. A trout starter and a Salad plater. I was a bit worried I'd be hungry again in no time, but not... More

Lovely food, the staff were very friendly. I had a steak which was truly delicious with a lovely side salad. The lamb cutlets were also very taste. Thank you

We visited this organic restaurant for a family lunch. My daughter is a vegetarian and it can be difficult for her to find anything suitable on a typical French restaurant menu (besides omelette). We were very impressed with both the service and the food. A great find.

We became regulars at this little hole-in-the-wall restaurant during our four months in Poitiers, France. The owners are incredibly warm and welcoming. The atmosphere is relaxed, friendly, and tranquil. In the warm weather you can sit outside in the quiet passageway the runs beside the restaurant. They serve locally sourced food, with many organic and gluten-free options and two or... More

Our local friends in Poitiers recommended this restaurant as it is one of the few which caters for vegetarians and even vegans. We were given a very warm welcome by the proprietress and chose the "Formule vegetarien" which was a main course and a dessert for €11,90. We could also have chosen dairy-free and gluten-free options from the menu. The... More

The place in itself is nice and intriguing: hidden in a back alley off one of the main streets, it looks extremely romantic. I went there for tea and cake. I had a chocolate fondant which I did not think was worth the 10€ bill and we had to wait a long time before being served. I might go again... More

Tucked away down a small lane off Rue Carnot, this pretty little tea-room is the perfect place for a light meal made from organic ingredients - they have gluten-free dishes on the menu too. It's also a cosy little place to sit in comfort, put your feet up and your shopping bags down, and enjoy a cup of tea from... More
