We were staying in the hotel so used this restaurant on one night. It was Thursday evening, very quiet - only a few diners. Good selection of food and wine, reasonably priced, and efficiently and cheerfully served. We saw it was packed on Friday night, including many local French.

First evening had a wonderful meal, excellent value. Second evening waited far too long for service and food and my main dish went to another table so I was left without food for far too long. I eventually gave up on the meal which was a disappointment because it does serve really good food. The staff tried to make it... More

I ate at Le Plantagent last year and it met with favourable reviews from most. The Brasserie which is part of the complex is very good but I think the prices are based on its location. Although good food, I think they adjust the price based on the fact that there is a well-known tourist attraction on its doorstep. This... More

My wife and I had lunch here, it was very good. There is a formal restaurant and also an informal brassierie where we ate. It is a lovely courtyard setting, best to go right in do not stop at the entrance area. I had pied de cochen (pigs foot) which I have never tried before because of the messy bones,... More

I really liked this little brasserie located in the hotel La Croix Blanche. The service was excellent and the food was high quality, uncomplicated brasserie fare. My friend finally got the omlette she had been wanting. A good place to go on a Monday night when nothing else is open. Attractive decor. I liked it!

Thank you for your encouragements ! The new decor and 'old fashioned' bistro dishes have been well received by many of our guests. More
