“Superb lunch venue.”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

Whilst wandering around the market square we were attracted too the pavement tables of this central cafe. It seemed very popular. There was a varied menu and lunchtime specials, small portions were available and were more than adequate. The waitress, despite being rushed off her feet was pleasant and helpful, water, drinks and bread soon appeared. My smoked salmon salad was one of the best I've tasted. My companions' goats cheese salads were also top quality. This is just a small sample but looking round the tables everyone seemed to be content. The prices were good value.
Will try the full meal next visit!

“Speciality beef”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Our first visit to to this restaurant in Villereal but as it's half way between our house and friends in the Dordogne I'm sure it won't be the last. Our visit started out a little wobbly even though we had reserved and the service seemed off hand - but once they took our orders things improved rapidly. We all steaks, from their own herd according to the menu, including a cote de bouef for 2. The previous reviewer tells the story so well and is accurate in every sense - a whole rib of beef for 2 priced at 40 euros [less than £35] was magnificent. Trust their judgement of how it should be cooked and it won't be ruined. We find beef in France to be generally iffy because of the different way they cut meat, and they must have sharper teeth than us, but this was just so good; soft and juicy and cooked to perfection. Don't bother asking for a wine list though - there are only 3 choices; blanc, rose or rouge!

“1.2kg of Meat”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

The Cote de Boeuf was a 1.2kg hunk of meat for 2 served on a board with a folding knife that was longer than my arm. The meat was good, recommended served rare or medium rare we went for the medium rare. The centre bits were raw through and the outside pieces a bit chewy but there was no shortage of great, tender meat. The pepper sauce was very fiery - go for the Roquefort sauce.

The kids had the tagliatelle with bolognese sauce. It was bland and tasteless and none was eaten.

We also had a morning coffee at the same venue on another day. They had run out of croissants so the recommended that we got some from across the road and eat them on their terrace. That was nice of them. A great venue for people watching.

“Great location and atmosphere”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

We had drinks here a couple of times and a meal on last night of our holiday. Busy place on Main square. Real mix of tourists and locals creates good atmosphere. Food was excellent. Emphasis on beef and steak I ate was superb.

“Loving it”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

We have eaten at Le Moderne many times on our visits to France. We will soon be regulars when we move to the area in November. Very good value for excellent home cooked food and friendly service. Great atmosphere.
