Lovely staff and good food. We arrived before they had officially opened but could sit down and were served drinks straight away. We even went back the next day.

We had arrived late in the evening at our B&B Villa Lafabreque and needed a dinner spot. We walked to town and were delighted to find El Patio. They were very crowded and we did have to wait a bit for service, but we were so glad to find a spot still open. The food was local fare, but done... More

Went here for quick dinner with the family. Nice salads, good veggie choices, lovely desserts and cheap pichets of wine. Service was a tad slow and normally not a problem but we were pushed for time for once. Would recommend this and eating in the back patio was lovely

Nothing fancy here, just an old fashioned restaurant in the positive sense. Simple menu of good and local specialties that are well prepared and served efficiently. A wine menu with local wines as well. In the winter the restaurant can feel a little cramped due to his small dining room. Lunch is busy with many local regulars. (Always a good... More

We sat on the outside patio which was away from the main street. It was very quiet and peaceful. The wine was the best value for money in the area - 7 euros for a litre of the local stuff. The set menus were a little more expensive than other nearby restaurants but there were a few to choose from... More

Nice restaurant where everybody seemed to have the Brochettes (like skewers with various meats on them). Interesting inside, but a little cramped. While we were there the wind outside blew up and came through the restaurant quite strong. This is due to the 'chimney' effect of the inside garden. The food was perfectly food enough, and the staff were friendly... More

Back again and the Restaurant is as consistent as ever. Friendly service and good reliable food. My only thought is that maybe some new items on the menu might be a good idea for the summer?

This meal was the last of many for us in France. While we haven't been eating at expensive restaurants we do appreciate good, tasty food with the right textures. So compared to other moderately priced eating houses this was right up there. The main course at this restaurant (translated badly to English as "crispy whiting") was the dish I enjoyed... More
