“service was slow, prices are high for what it is”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

This café has a great location, on the way back to the train station from Giverny. They obviously know it, though, and are slow to serve non-locals. You should come here if you have an hour to kill before your train leaves (which is what I did), to have a drink outside and spy on the locals. It's not haute cuisine by any stretch of the imagination.

“If you are American do NOT go there. You will be ignored, scorned, mocked and generally treated horribly.”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Waitress yelled at me to sit down when I stood to asked for bread after our meal was almost complete. We were charged 4.5€ for extra plate to split a dish. Our orders were never completed correctly - how do you get vin blanc wrong? All the people (French) around us were served promptly, but I believe that the two servers went out of their way to act like they did not understand and in no way tried to offer any type of assistance at all. Americans - beware - do NOT go to this restaurant - they do not want you or your money!! And the food was nothing special. If this is #2 in Vernon - you should skip Vernon and go straight to Restaurant Baudy in Giverny!
