The food here is good value and the staff are helpful and friendly. Fairly traditional provencal cooking with extras; set menu and special of the day. Good wine. Great atmosphere, and you are on the village place (if you want to play boule) which overlooks the Lac de St. Croix.

We had a salad for €12.50 that was a very sparingly plated, with tiny morsels of chicken placed at precise distances around the plate's perimeter, a single crouton, about a quarter of a tomato, etc. The flavours were good but this was an informal spot and we felt ripped off by the portions. You're paying for the view across the... More

Came here for lunch on a trip to the Lac de St. Croix. New owners who were very keen to make sure everything was correct. Will be a hard act to follow as Bernard and Gudrun have run this place for years. They have kept the same menu, a good idea, as it is superb. We had Entrecôte aux herbes... More

We had lunch there and as it was a bit windy we sat in the sheltered section. They were able to prepare a vegetarian dish. The bread served was delicious. The location is great and offers a lovely view over the lake. Will be going back.

Bernard Keyser started to run the Cafe du Midi in Bauduen a while ago now, and it has always been a wonderful place to eat, drink, and enjoy the view. The menu is almost unchanging, but it doesn't need to change - everything on it is based on traditional Provencal dishes and also has his own unique and individual touch.... More

We endorse all the praise heaped on this perfect spot. The location is great, the staff - especially Chef - charming and helpful (English spoken) but above all the food is quite delicious.

Our best meal during our 2 week holiday. We know the area well but this was our first visit to this restaurant. We went for Sunday lunch with a combination of friends and family. It ticks all the boxes. The location and ambience were superb as were the food, service and value. We will return!

This little place is totally unique. Right next to the lake and food that is a totally new experience. The patron/chef is brilliant and comes to chat to all his customers. Do go there you won't be disappointed!!
