Every time I visit this restaurant, whether it's with friends or family, I absolutely love it. The terrace outside, which we manage to sit out on more often than not, is sublime. So typically French. We always have the three-course menu and have never been disappointed. So much care is put into each plate. Amanda and David are really charming... More

Les Platanes restaurant is probably the loveliest place I have eaten for a long time! We were a large rather noisy group but we all enjoyed our three courses and lashings of vino. The food was beautifully presented and delicious and Amanda is so lovely and sitting outside on a balmy afternoon, nothing could be better. I hope we can... More

You just never know when nor where you are going to find an unexpected restaurant jewel! Les Platanes in the very small French village of Poilhes is just such a jewel. The food is superior and excellently prepared and served to you either in the charming restaurant or on the terrace under a huge Platane tree if the weather is... More

Four of us were staying at a nearby "hotel" and ate at Les Platanes on a couple of occasions. Most pleasant proprietors, cosy indoor eating area, (plus outdoors if the weather is good enough); good menu and quality food/wines. Very welcoming and worth a visit.

Everything was perfect. We chosed the daily menu at a very reasonable price and from the tasty wild mushrooms in puff pastry, through the fantastic haddock to the delicious and creative chocolate cake. As it was raining we could not use the outdoors but, it always is worthwhile not to choose the restaurant next to the pier even you get... More

We visited Les Platanes on the last night of a week cruising on the Canal du Midi. We had high expectations having seen previous trip advisor posts and we weren't disappointed. The food was delicious, beautifully presented and the service was great. We will plan to stay nearby to visit again.

This was a bright spot in our rainy day travels. The lunch the four of us enjoyed was beautifully presented and our tastebuds were not disappointed. We had the beef and pork meatballs, the "fruits of the sea" dish and a mushroom. We finished our meal with chocolate mousses and lemon tarts. Definitely a great place to stop when canal... More

We rented a villa in the village for six nights and we ate here for three of them. The food was fabulous and the service excellent. They were flexible, translated the menu in detail and were very accommodating to our children. This is the best restaurant in the village by far and we tried all three of them. Please try... More

Title says it all really. We own a place in that part of the world and visit 3-4 times a year. We have built in a trip to this restaurant as a permanent feature of the itinerary..the food and the company are always top-notch. The tragedy is they may have to close and return to the UK because of the... More
