This is a friendly unpretentious little restaurant run with a skeleton staff. Food is good and reasonably priced. However its popularity in off-peak times can be its undoing in peak times. Having reserved a table and ordered, it was an hour's wait for the first dish to arrive, subsequent dishes arriving at three minute intervals. The starter salads arrived after... More

A total fan of the Mandoline where the pizza is consistently good. But it does get busy particulary at weekends, and there is only one pizza oven so wait times can sometimes be long, especially as they are also doing take-out orders. Recommend the Roquefort pizza and also the one with lardons, potatoes and creme fraiche - Savoyarde(?) - yummy!

We arrived just on opening and were soon seated and served - great when travelling with kids. The pizza was good and the staff were friendly. The location is a pleasant stroll away from town - good for walking off a slice or two after you have eaten.

La Mandoline is not the place to celebrate your wedding anniversary but if you want a quick, reasonably priced pizza, especially with children, then it can be recommended. I have had better pizza but I have also had much, much worse and the green salad was very acceptable. The red wine was a bit rough and the desert menu limited... More

We have been here several times. The place is like a roadside diner... sort of long and thin, next to a busy road. The atmosphere is informal and busy. Easy parking. Seating is comfortable, and they start service at 7pm so great for kids. You can see the pizza chef at work. Good choice of pizzas, which have always been... More

Went to this restaurant on the first night of our holiday. Lovely pizzas and helpful service. The restaurant seemed busy with local folk and tourists alike. Also does a fast trade in take away.
