There's a little traveling to do before you reach the restaurant. But both the trip and the restaurant are well worth it! The restaurant oozes charm. There's a (several jeu de boule lanes) area where children can play while the adults finish their meal. The menu is diverse enough but not elaborate. What I really like is that they do... More

I confess to hearing lots of good things about this place but avoiding it in the tourist season as it does have a huge outdoor area and have heard it's often packed. And then we paid a visit and regretted leaving it years before we did. It was lunchtime. We were the only three people in the place, but it... More

We had dinner here, inside, as it was quite cold. Very lovely atmosphere and gooed food. I heard that the menu never changes here, but I don't have any experience , as this was the first time there. We'll try again in a couple of months and see if there are changes.

If the setting and ambiance weren't enough, the food and service made our evening here very memorable. It was a great experience.

This was surely one of the most memorable meals I have had and I have had many all over the world. The setting is amazing, the ambiance is wonderful and the food exceptional. All in all a meal I will remember forever.

Located along the river and in the shade of the hills, this restaurant had lovely outdoor seating and great service. Get there early in the evening if you do not have reservations. If you want to just relax along the river, there is an outside bar and picnic areas. We enjoyed a French beef stew dinner on the terrace brought... More

We have been coming to La Fontaine Minerale for three years now (though only in the summers). The charming owners always come by the table to say hello and have a little chat. It was a hot day and we enjoyed the cool breezes from the river that evening. Our young children were able to run free on the lawn... More
