“Drinks only”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

Heard there was good pizza, but the kitchen was closed mid- afternoon, so we stayed for drinks. Nice ambience as we watched the Tour de France with locals, and their dogs, and their children. Staff helpful in selecting a local beer, would definitely go back.

“Great pizzas and friendly service”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

My wife and I used The Stone Bar three times for dinner last week. They make very good food at reasonable prices. They seem to specialise in pizzas and on two of the evenings we shared a piccante pizza ( the size is big enough to share between two unless you're a real glutton) with a couple of extra vegetable toppings.The pizza is home-made thin crust and the chorizo is spicey and flavourful, especially with the addition of the chili olive oil.
On the other occasion we went with our son and two grandchildren. The children had kids' portions of pasta carbonara and our son had a ham pizza, my wife a taglatelle bolognese and I ordered the duck in terayaki sauce with steamed rice. All dishes were fine although I could have done with more rice with the duck which had a nice enough flavour. To be honest though, I wish I'd chosen a pizza again which would have been more filling and cheaper.The service on all three nights was attentive and friendly ( the owners' daughter I think).
You can eat inside or outside on the terrace next to the busy road. If you choose to eat outside the premises you can expect to have smokers sitting very close at nearby tables. This seems to be the norm for alfresco dining in this area.
I noticed a pool table downstairs in the bar.
If large pizzas are your desire, then you won't go far wrong here. There is plenty of choice and the price in the region of €10-12 depending on type and number of toppings represents great value. Recommended.

“best pizza outside Italy”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

The lovely owners, Patsi and Phillipe want you to enjoy your meal and so does the chef. It's so nice to be somewhere that doesn't feel as if it is trying too hard.It feels like a place where one can relax and enjoy a lovely pizza with interested owners who care about your enjoyment.

“Pizza in Argentierre”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

We ate here a few times during a week stay in the area. Pizza and pasta were excellent. The owners were very friendly and felt very welcomed. Many local drinking at the bar, which is always a good sign.

“Good food good atmosphere”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

The place was buzzing, pizzas are big and the food great. much larger on the inside than you think. Service is good and the staff friendly. Probably a good idea to book on a Friday/ WE.
