We went to Galerie.M. at the suggestion of a family member due to the fact that there were 10 of us (including 3 kids) and many of the other restaurants in Monpazier were either closed or unable to find space. It turned out that the family member had previously been to Galerie.M. and had a bad experience and hoped it would be better. They were wrong.

Unfortunately service was very slow (there were a few large groups in). It took about 1/2+ hour to get a menu, another 3/4+ hour to get starters, another 3/4+ hour to get our main course, and we didn't bother with dessert - we'd had enough!

The food itself was average. Starters were a mix of scallops, artichoke salads and onion soup. The scallops weren't great, and neither was the artichoke salad. Gritty and disappointing. The main courses were better, majority of the party going for something steak based. That said, many were very salty.

The staff were friendly enough, just not many of them at the front of house considering the amount of covers. The price wasn't bad, but the whole experience was tainted by the starter and the service. Wouldn't go again ...

Monpazier is a wonderful Bastide. This restaurant, located on really beautiful square, is not at all at the level we could expect sitting there.
Meat of my children was just burnt, the foie gras of my Salad was the worst experience of my life, not regional and not home made for sure, service was terrible as my wife received her salad 10 min after all of us... I had to remind the server. And I found 1 hair in my plate...I do not recommend at all this place! Just walk couple of additional meters and you will enjoy the city and your lunch

We spent a memorable evening at the Galerie.M. with some good friends. It is important not to be in any kind of hurry whatsoever and you need to be in good humour. The service does not follow any kind of set routine and was more a sort of lottery as to who will be served next and with what. It was part of our entertainment to watch the waiter come into the square and try to decide which table to guess at first....and was rarely correct! All that said, our aperitifs came reasonably quickly and we were able to relax into the evening. The food we ordered was basically correct and came together. The sun had been shining all day and the Square looked magnificent. We ate our food, drank our wine and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in what is one of the best venues in France. What does it really matter if things became a bit 'Fawlty Towers' in the middle....not at all!

A truly memorable evening with very good friends.

We went here as an extended family group. The quality of the food, wine and service was very good.

The one downfall was the delay in side dishes arriving to complement the main dishes ordered. This may well have been that they were very busy and did not expect a larger group.

Whilst this did frustrate it did not take the shine off what was a good meal with good service.

We have been to the restaurant a few times before,last time the service was poor ,but this time it was very much improved with new waiters.the meal was very good and very well presented. Sitting in the square was fantastic in the sun ,it's a great place to eat and will defiantly go back again well worth a visit .
