“Service should be improved. Otherwise quite a nice place.”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

No greeting at the door (we are used to a least a bonjour on entry to most places), we greeted the young unhappy waitress (in good French) & asked for a table which was pointed at in response. Menus were later delivered without a word and waitress came back later to take the order and stood beside us pen and notepad in hand and still not a word. At this stage we thought she was a mute and we were about to revert to sign language to get our order! Finally when ordering we got a few curt words. My partner said a few sarcastic comment/response French phrases one may usually get in a restaurant as she walked away. The food was delivered in a slightly more talkative manner (we think she may have realized one of us was French?). We enjoyed the meal and our local cider served in the local cider cups, nice simple tasty food done well. The decor was neat, clean and attractive and the menu was diverse and inexpensive plus decent formula and plat du jour meals were also available. We would have enjoyed our meal much more with better service. We have been in France this time for 4 weeks now eating at many, many places around France and this is the worst service so far. The only worse service we have had in Europe this trip was in Brugges, Belgium in a place opposite the Bell tower (subject to bad review elsewhere on TripAdvisor by my friend). It is a very nice restaurant for such a small town (we stayed there for a week in our Gite/Holiday home). We shudder to think what may have happened had I tried to order for us with my English/bad French.
