I dropped in here whilst staying round the corner. I love everything about this place. The location, the deli, the brunch. A great place in one of France's most Beautiful villages.

Enjoyed a good breakfast/brunch here while browsing the morning market. Quirky, interesting brunch menu, made with organic ingredients. I had pain perdu with melon jam, local cheese and red fruit salad. Personally, I would have loved croissants to be included, as for me, a breakfast in France isn't complete without them, but this cafe is all about local ingredients and... More

We had a really good lunch and then came back the following day for dinner. Food was great and they had a chef's selection of wines that were great and very good value. One bottle was corked and the waiter replaced it without question. Good seafood and meats

An interesting little place. We just had dinner here. They serve food all day it seems snacks and tapas. They also sell groceries and wine and have rooms also. We had a table reserved which they showed us to then completely ignored us and we had to ask for the menu which was just a chalk board. We decided to... More

Lovely quiet rooms - super stylish open plan layout, concrete floors, open fire, turret look out over square and church. Ars en re is a pretty little town with frequent markets, harbour & beach - hard to find a good restaurant though & Senechal's own general store ( useful) & restaurant (disappointing) didn't seem to be the answer. Good sea... More

I love this place. We spent 2 perfect weeks in the Ile de Re last summer & cycled everywhere - this cafe was one of our two favourite pit stops (the other being La Martiniere in St Martin for an ice-cream). It's very cool & considered in terms of design (lighting tableware..) & perfectly located in the square with a... More

This place is quite understated both inside and outside but that is really it's quality. We often stopped there in the morning for a café and one lunch, had the most scrumptious lunch. Two of us had sardines which were nothing like any sardines I had ever eaten. The crab was similarly successful - the size and freshness of the... More

We went there as a couple and we loved it. The atmosphere was great and the staff was really taking care of us. I really recommend this place as the food is really worth it. The deserts were simply exquisit. Only one bad comment: it's too far from home!! :P JC
