“Dining under the trees was sublime, food was mediocre.”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

We dined outside under the trees during a balmy evening, which was very nice (rates 4 stars). But the food was mediocre (rates 2 stars). There are lots of restaurants in this square. So you can experience the balmy evening under trees in lots of places. I would see if the food is better at the other places before going back to this one.

“Great food and atmosphere”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

Recommended by out hotel, and just around the corner from it, we found this place great. Food was very good quality, tasty and well cooked. A great selection of wines and welcoming service. For a fairly touristy town this place presented good quality meals at a reasonable price.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Ambience typically bistro with a small Wine Bar thrown in. Menu features local dishes but cooking nothing special and the Frits were soft and greasy. Good wine list with about 20 wines or more by the glass.

“Above average bistro cuisine in a good location”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Situated in Place Saint Pierre facing the beautiful, but unfortunately scaffolded church of St Pierre, across the cobbled square, Bistro de la Place attracts many tourists. Then again there are a few such establishments here that do the same, but in our experience, BdlT is the best. The quality of food harks back to days when regional french cuisine was excellent. The variety and innovation of locally based dishes was particularly good to see. The provision of proudly served, local wines a refreshing change. We discussed the merits of numerous wines with the patron to the point one day where he invited us down into the cellar where racks of wine sat invitingly in the tunnels under the square.

You will not be disappointed by the quality of food, wine or service offered at modest prices, if you choose correctly.
