We were staying in the hotel next door so this was great as it was a short walk to the restaurant. The staff were friendly and we chose to sit outside in the shaded veranda. The food was of a good standard and reasonably priced. I would recommend this place for a good meal in particular the steaks. Well cooked to our requirements and really tasty.

We were staying at the Hotel de Sources next door, and had planned to eat dinner here anyway... so we were pleasantly surprised to get a voucher for 15% off from the hotel reception.

We arrived at the restaurant, with no booking, at about 7pm on the Saturday night - 2 adults, 1 preschooler and a baby in a buggy. The staff were friendly and found us a table with plenty of room around it so we could leave the baby sleeping.

Without asking, they gave my daughter some crayons so she could colour in the picture (printed on the back of her place mat)

As we had the voucher, we went for the Menu Grillardin which offered us a main and dessert for circa 19 euros. My 3 year old went for the Baby Paillou menu (main, dessert and Orangina) After ordering wew were brought a plate of salami and cornichons, a bowl of deliciously crusty bread, a bowl of green salad and because hubby ordered a beer, a small bowl of cheesy barsnacks too!

My husband and I both ordered the rump steak and it came exactly as requested - thick, juicy and medium - and with plentiful chips (and the waitress asked us if we wanted more!) My daughter's steak hache and chips were also cooked as requested (well done) and the portion was plentiful, especially for a three year old! My husband also requested a glass of the Languedoc red that was the monthly special (amazingly priced at less than 3 euros!). I then had the nutty tarte, hubby had the "suggestion du moment" chocolate tarte and our daughter had the "duo of chocolate".

The portions were generous, the food was tasty, the staff were friendly and helpful. The bill was proportionally small for what we had so overall our visit was excellent value.

We left the restaurant at nearly 9pm and by that time it was full, and not obviously with tourists from the hotel next door. To me this suggests they are doing something right. Haute cuisine? No. But good food at great prices, that's a winner for us. We'd use the Courtepaille chain again (in fact we did, on our return journey, in a different location, but wholly because of the positive experience we had here).

This restaurant is located next to the Hotel de Sources motel, which make it the ideal place to go for dinner.

Service is excellent, and the food is outstanding.

Although travelled to France many times first time eating in this chain of restaurants.
Quality and speed if services very good . Staff helpful and polite. We both had steak ,mine was cooked to perfection and hot. Drinks reasonably priced. As staying at the hotel next door got 15% reduction off the bill, prompted by the waitress. All in all very pleased with the standard. Will visit again.

We visited this restaurant, next door to the very pleasant Hôtel des Sources,on the last night of a much enjoyed 2 week holiday on the continent.A big mistake!! The food, when we finally got it, was good standard fayre. However, we were left shell-shocked by our treatment at the hands of the waiting staff. Our waitress was clearly anti-foreigners(or perhaps anti-British after the brexit vote, who knows?).some of the classic things happened: French diners, who arrived after us, were served before us; when the waitress finally came to us she was extremely brusque,rude & really quite aggressive!! She barked questions at us in French, refusing to help us out with any English when we were unsure even though she clearly spoke it. Having had no food in sight for an overly long length of time suddenly everything was on the table -starters and mains. Really we should have left before the onslaught of food!! When my dad had a word with the manager no action was taken. So if you aren't French and choose to chance this establishment, good luck!!!
