“Small-town France juste comme il faut”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Making a Sunday-night stopover in Villedieu, we stumbled into A Table Ronde because it seemed 'right'. As someone else here wisely points out, this isn't grande gastronomie, but it is honest food, well prepared and served promptly and with a smile. We (2 adults plus boys aged 10 and 12) all had the 'planche du boucher' - essentially steak, salad, chips and a tangy, herby home-made bearnaise, and it was delightful, the beef tender and cooked just as we'd requested. There was dessert of basic but tasty apple tart or a variety of ice creams.

Total of 102 EUR included house wine, soft drinks, coffee and calvados. I've eaten in little places like this all over France, and the pleasure lies in spotting what the cook does best. This place knows its meat, and the friendly service made it a memorable end to our holiday.

“Scary”
Reviewed April 17, 2012

Maybe I should not post a 'review' as such as I did not eat here - but I did enter the restaurant one evening last week - and as a result of the uneasy atmosphere - I got up and left again as fast as I could. The restaurant looks nice enough from the outside - but once inside there was about 6 staff standing around - and 2 customers in the whole restaurant. It was quite freaky - as they all stared at us as went made our way to our seats. Can you imagine eating a meal here??? They seemed to have a speciality - which was a sort of roast ham hock - sitting cold on a type of spit - it didnt look very appetising. After perusing the menu we found the selection was poor and very expensive. So - we got up and left.
