“Tapas restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

Lots for your money, although quality is not uniformly great. Staff very courteous. Some outdoor seating on the veranda, with a good view over the valley.

“Great value & great view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

Having just returned from a week in Gaucin this tapas bar was one we visited regularly. Good value, friendly service and a good view if you can get a table on the small terrace. The bar has won the village tapas award for the last 2 years. There are better, more expensive tapas bars and restaurants (La Fructuosa is a superb full blown restaurant, for example) but this is a lovely tapas bar. Tended to be full of English in the evenings, but frequented by locals for breakfast. Pork in pine nuts definitely worth a try (competition winner).

“Great view from the terrace.”

But that is about it. Reasonable food, OKish seating outside and friendly pricing. The view compensates the downside somewhat.

“authentic and relaxed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

myself and husband have just returned from a lovely week in gaucin, and this was by far our favourite. its the most authentic, as other places in the village tend to waver towards trying to please the english palette. Very friendly and the owners are lovely.the pork in pinenut sauce is amazing. very good wine, and very good prices!
