Pretty dreadful!

The waiter was pleasant enough and found us a table. The clientelle were a mixture of French along with a few English tourists.

The food was not good. The fish soup was out of a packet and the steaks were stringy, of poor quality and soaked in a sickly creamy pepper sauce. The dauphinoise potatoes had been made earlier in the day and heated in a microwave until they were dry. The vegetables were a slab of courgettes, again made earlier in the day and, again, heated to death in the microwave.

A 'Beer pression' was charged at 5 Euros - ridiculous!

Never again!

We were very impressed with the whole dining experience at La Pierre Chaude. They had a great range of set menus and the food, although not exceptional, was very tasty. All our dietary needs were catered for and my friend and I were impressed at the vegetarian options. The onion soup was yummy and I loved the goat's cheese salad. The service was friendly and the waiter happy to converse in both French and English. It was good to see locals eating their lunch there too. Would definitely return.

Tasteless food with a strange brown dressing on the salad which seemed to be a cross between thick balsamic vinegar and brown sauce. Unpleasant and aggressive service. The restaurant was smokey from the clients at the tables outside the large open window and the passersby. What a waste of money and an awful experience!!

My wife's a vegetarian - not always easy in france, but it's improving. This restaurant had a veggie menu which was great. Apart from that it's a typical French restaurant - I had snails and mussels and was delicious. Service freindly and everyone nice to my 5yr old son too.

Trust your instincts - the outside looked tatty and outdated - but persuaded by the positive reviews here. In fact should have read and taken note of this previous review which was spot on "Starters were ok.. The dauphinoise potato was definitely cut out of a larger slab and microwaved as were the mixed vegetables which I am sure came out of a tin. The people who say that this place has atmosphere must go to some miserable restaurants as there was no atmosphere at all, it could also do with a good clean!! Would not recommend this restaurant." Other faults were my partners vodka and coke - the coke was flat! The main courses - I've had better school dinners. And the tarte citron - Tesco's is much better. and expensive!1
