As others had said it was frequented by what looked like locals so thought we'd give it a go. Crepes lovely, pyranneen salad was really nice and the lad had an 'American' - some sort of super burger with fries which he managed to polish off eventually. Nice to sit outside but on our day there were a lot of... More

Still haven't eaten here, and just come for the beer and the atmosphere. Drinking outside at the tables is clearly the thing for tourists to do here, but I love to drink inside amid the wonderfully chaotic surroundings of shop shelves, betting counter, ice cream fridge and assorted half cut, verbose yet friendly locals. Top bar in town by a... More

On the square, nice to sit outside and people watch, they serve food and snacks and all the locals (catalans) use it, very friendly and when the cold forced us in one day we discovered they had a betting shop setup in the rear part of the bar !

We had a quick lunch here - a savoury pancake and a demi pichet of local red wine. Our waiter for very friendly and helpful, the service was quick and the food was cheap and absolutely fine. The wine was exactly what you would expect for the price (less than a glass of wine in England) and perfectly drinkable. It... More

Chez Jean Louis has everything. It is a bar; it's a restaurant; it's a shop and it sells ice cream. Primarily however it's a bar and it is clearly the local bar for the blokes of the village. And as far as villages go, take away the tourist visitors and there is no doubt that this is a real working... More

Looks like just a bar but also served decent, well cooked inventive food. I had the menu simple Roquefort salad with walnuts and the veal, which was served with excellent vegetables. Frequented by locals so a good sign. Two house reds, the slightly more expensive was excellent.

If you want to hang out and watch the world go by in Vernet this is the place. I ate here most days. Straightforward food. All well done. It's a local place so make sure you're ready for a chat in French. I will be back.

Seven local "expats" had an excellent mid week evening meal last week, the decor needs updating but the food was faultless and the service excellent. We would encourage others to support this new venture.
