Jammed pack with lorry drivers, the local work force and everyone else in the know, and no surprise.

Excellent value, 4 course lunch - buffet salad starter (eat all you can style), 6 - 8 choices of mains, half a dozen choices of pudding and a great, help yourself cheese board.

Busy but friendly, excellent value - don't miss it.

Caution: no reservations, not open every day and no evenings.

The real deal

Hi

We have owned a house in Chatillon for 5 years and only today managed to try this restaurant for lunch.

We got there at 12 and just managed to get a table so might be an idea to book.

€13 gets you

Buffet first course with lots of choice - various salads, ham, fish, eggs etc
main course - Choice of 5
cheese - pretty much help yourself and again 7 or 8 choices
desert - 5 or 6 choices
red wine (half a bottle per person)
coffee

Service was great, food was pretty good. This is not a smart place but great value and well worth a visit. Lots of locals.

Alex

After reading a review on Tripadvisor before our trip to the area I decided this would be a good place to try. As others have said arrive at midday and you will probably get a table. There were 6 of us.
The service was very good and the food was superb. Although our host did not speak a word of English things progressed at a fine rate through a buffet first course that had a choice of around 25 items including salads and pate. The second course was a hot course with a choice of around 5 options including steak, pork, Beef bourguignon and fish. Another full on flavour course. Then the offer to try the cheese board of around 12 types of cheese or a soft cheese with a selection of self selected toppings, herbs, onions etc. A course that I personally can never resist. A choice of deserts that included Creme Brulee, Damme Blanche, fruit salad and more followed by coffee. Included in the meal was a bottle of house wine, red, white or rose.
The real shocker being the stunningly good price of €13 per person!
All the family from under 2 years to grandparent were more than content on departure.
If you are in the area and want to eat as a local then this is "the" place.
Shame it is so far from home!

You have to book and be there at 12 on the dot. Bank managers eat alongside road workers in this authentic and welcomign restaurant. Don't binge on the entrées as there is a good choice of mains.
