Our family was happy that we found this restaurant and that they were able to accommodate the nine of us during a busy lunch time. The service was excellent, the prices are very reasonable and the food was very good. Many options to choose from on the fixed price menu and a la carte. Top it off with outdoor seating... More

Really good food and reasonable fixed price menu. Outdoor seating in the summer, friendly service. Lighting very bright, which is a shame but still, this restaurant is a firm favourite!

Excellent value set menu with plenty of varied dishes to choose from. The steak was delicious and the chocolate mousse is to die for.

Can be a bit busy at times so make sure to reserve. They have nice simple meals at reasonable prices. The deserts are great. Service can also be a bit slow.

We popped in for lunch on the last day of our holidays in the area. This restaurant, "L' Ardoise Gourmande" was certainly the most popular among the locals and the top restaurant on TripAdvisor for the town. It was a market day and also very hot, so the restaurant was extremely busy. The menu was extensive and they also had... More

This restaurant is sandwiched in between two others. We chose L'Ardoise because they offered a set menu for 16euros. Salads were an excellent starter with local cheese. Then the majority of our party had the burgers with melted Camembert. Excellent flavours and nice salad and fries on the side. My wife had the fish and other member of the party... More

Reasonable prices for french cuisine. Popular with tourists and the locals. Children's menu not great...better to choose from the main menu. Burgers were on offer if desperate. Service friendly.

Nice to sit outside, a decent meal but not special. Camembert does not go well with a burger. Service good and staff very friendly. We found creme brûlée very good.

We had a nice tour of the area, but the food wasn't special. It tasted good and you had a decent meal for your money. Also I had a cream brûlée as desert, but this wasn't made well. It didn't have a smooth texture.
