“As good as the best reviews indicate!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

Over the years we've had several lunches and this was our 2nd dinner here. The food and service is excellent. Now that I've read other people's reviews -- I agree with the most positive ones and there's considerable value here. One note: at dinner a year ago I had none of their great/cheap wines because I designated myself as driver... this is a bit off the beaten track... and I was fortunate to have done so: Gendarmes invited me at the nearby round-about to do a breathalyzer test, which I passed easily... so, at least for dinners understand that being in a COOP has its pluses but also potential minuses since it may be viewed by desperate French public accountants as a revenue generator for DUI fines! But back to point -- diverse menus every time we've visited... reasonable -- some would say cheap -- prices... and very friendly service... actually at one lunch our waitress danced for a nearby family... and she was wearing very high healed shoes... this is a must stop place if you can get a reservation.

“Terrific value lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

This large bistro attached to the Vinopolis winery was packed for our lunchtime visit and with good cause. At 21 euros pp plus supplements for some dishes this restaurant is seriously good value. Service was very efficient and to be able to buy the co-operatives wine with your meal at only a euro or so above the winery price is in my experience unprecedented. The menu and cooking was very good also. I had salmon rillettes with salad & toast followed by their specialty Lobster lasagne with shredded vegtables and finished with their version of Cafe Gourmand. This was new to me but it is apparently now popular in France. This dessert was an expresso joined with 4 small deserts of the house. The Lobster dish attracted a 7 euro supplement but it included a half a small lobster. The flavour of this dish was pretty intense. My only disappointment was the lack of a desert wine. Apparently because the winery doesn't produce a dessert wine they don't offer one in the bistro. This would be easily corrected. In total our bill for 2 came to 57 euros.

“Great Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

This was our first visit to the restaurant which had been recommended to us by friends and we were not disappointed. The menu was good with plenty of choice and the food very fresh. Wine can be bought at the adjoining cave at very reasonable prices. It is a very popular restaurant and it is best to book to avoid disappointment. We will be back!

“Best value restaurant in the Languedoc”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

For a long time, Le Bistro d'Alex remained a secret shared by those of us who either live or come here frequently. Now the word has got out, it is a challenge to find a table at short notice. Popularity has not diminshed the quality, fortunately, nor the value for money. The food is very good to excellent, the service friendly and always smiling, the wine offered at the price it sells for in the domaine( Vinopolis). In addition, prices are the same whether you go for lunch or dinner. It is also the only place we know where Sunday lunch can cost as little as a weekday lunch. There are supplements for more expensive dishes but nothing is very expensive. Do not be put off by the simple, cantine- like atmosphere. That is part of its charm. Booking strongly recommended.
