“Entertaining!”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

We have eaten here a few times and each time have thoroughly enjoyed it. The food is plentiful and quantity does not take the place of quality. The host is most entertaining and makes you feel very welcome. After having an aperitif, main course, pudding and bottle of wine followed by an 'on the house digestif' and then tea this all came in at a very reasonable 64 euros for two of us. We will be back again.

Visited this restaurant twice during our brief stay. The welcome was very friendly and the owner very amusing. The food was excellent and the service good.. The owner was very amusing and the whole experience most enjoyable. Highly recommended.

“Amusing”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

The food was good to OK, but the owner was great and he had people talking to each other by distributing little puzzles around the tables. My family loved it and they had the good food. I, on the other hand, took a gamble and order the steak tartar. The results weren't pleasant, but I do accept it is a dish that is risky.

A word about Poitiers. The place was sort of empty and much civic work and building was going on. The locals were generally grumpy and rude (not all, but I am generalising). Given other places in France, I would say there are better places to visit.

“adequate”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

The friendly service rescued this experience as the atmosphere is simple, cafe-like and the food was quite bland and pre prepared. However, all edible, tasty and reasonably priced with an excellent wine. Not a place for a special occasion but for a quick, simple, satisfying meal it's fine.

“Small but good”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

Basic but good food. Staff did not speak a lot of English but were very attentive, gave me some books about Poitier to look at while waiting for meal. Reasonably priced.
