“Horrendous Service, avoid at all costs!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

We stumbled across this restaurant as we had rented a house in Maubec for my Mum's 70th Birthday. We are a party of 4 with a 10 month old baby.

Earlier in the day we had dined at La Bastide de Gordes for lunch - A beautiful hotel with spectacular views and a lovely terrace cut into the edge of the hilltop, where we enjoyed a delicious lunch - would thoroughly reccomend.

After returning to Maubec we decided to take a stroll around the village, mainly to let our baby have a bit of a play in the play park and walking past La Bergerie decided to stop for an early evening drink snack. The owner here can only be described as bullish. This place is enjoying the monopoly in Maubec and is a tourist trap to say the least. Empasis is on a quick turnover and adding as many charged extras to your bill as possible. The staff are very unfriendly and there is a clear dislike for the British - avoid at all costs!

Merci de votre gentil commentaire a un si vilain restaurateur !!!! Pouvez vous m indiquer le nom d un restaurant qui a 20H booke une table pour 5 pour une pizza et trois boissons !!!!! Jignorais que nos voisins britanniques avaient aussi peu le sens du commerce, toutefois cette adorable famille a pu rester et boire a l interieur !!!! Nous sommes citoyens du monde et en servant 15000 couverts / an depuis 7ans avec 40 % d anglais et un fils vivant a Londres,comment ne pas les aimer??? Peut - etre certains perdent -ils leur flegme en traversant l Atlantique ? Alors bon sejour en France and God Save The Queen

“High priced average pizza”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

We went out for a simple dinner and found this nice terrace has a great view and table setting is very nice. Since we weren’t hungry we ordered a simple pizza ”Quattro frommage” and a bottle of rose house wine. To be quick bottom pizza was simply far below average but topping was ok.
Price Value way out of whack ( close to 40 euro for a pizza and a bottle of simple housed wine) doesn’t sound right.
The waitress who initially served us was very friendly something I couldn’t say for her boss (presuming the owner of this place)
Conclusion: just average pizza, with a price/value not in line, positive surrounding area, view of the terrace is great. Anyhow would definitely NOT visit this place again.

“Could be so much better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

Been here six times because it was convenient, but probably won't return.

Have had some decent food, pizzas can be good, but the service is generally average at best and sometimes downright disgraceful.

Always get the feeling that they want you in and out and paying as much as possible with the minimum hassle for them.

Had several "incidents" with this last one being the final straw.

First night (10 diners, four ordered a hot foie gras dish -19 euros expensive but very nice) all ok.

Second visit, similar experience, this time two of us ordered the same dish/same price, except half size portion turned up. We told the manager that we weren't happy, and she looked at it and immediately agreed that it wasn't the same and she would get some more. This arrived eventually. The point is that she just looked like they had been caught out stinging the daft tourists. Not a hint of an apology.

It just confirmed that they have a couldn't care less attitude, (perhaps towards the Anglais?) and they don't deserve our future custom. It's a shame because it could work well there.

English avoid perhaps?

“"A very good find in a small village"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

We were a group of 8 friends staying at a villa in Maubec. The owner of the villa recommended La Bergerie as a convenient restaurant within walking distance of the villa. We arrived at La Bergerie before 7 pm on our first evening at the villa to discover that they wouldn't be open until 7. We also had no reservation. The owner came out and said they could accommodate us at 7 pm if we would wait a few minutes. We were lucky that we did because the dinner was excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful. We had salads and pizza, all being quite delicious. The recommended wines were also quite good. We returned two more evenings for more formal meals and were very happy with our dinner selections. Everything was delicious! By the end of our last evening, we were on first-name basis with the owner, "Teddy Bear." La Bergerie was filled to capacity each time we were there and on the last evening, there were customers waiting outside for tables to become available. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone!!!
