I had heard lots of good things about this place and was taken there by a friend yesterday. The fixed three-course menu was 20 euros including a glass of good wine (there was a choice of red, rose or white) and was most enjoyable. Very, very well cooked, beautiful presentation and friendly service by a charming waiter. The restaurant ambience... More

I suspect the heading says it all. This time I went with my wife and another married couple. He had been a top hotel chef in England. The food is beautifully cooked and beautifully presented, Food is sourced locally. It is just brilliant for lunch. The English chef raved about some of the flavour combinations. All in all excellent value... More

We enjoyed a very fine evening's dining at Graines et Garenne. We all had excellent meals, although the "menu" is now Eu 30 but we thought still good value. It was a very warm evening and the outdoor garden setting was appreciated. We also had a lovely bottle of Domaine Brillet merlot, very interesting as we had visited the Brillet... More

My wife and went for a fixed price lunch on a Friday in early June. The place was full and we were very pleased to have booked. The set menu (weekday) is 20 euros for a three course meal including a large glass of wine. Superb value. The décor is not swanky just an extremely pleasant "country" style. The staff... More

I could not agree more with MikeWNewport's report. It is spot on. I went with my wife and another couple for a Saturday evening meal. Like Mike we like to eat earlyish. At 1930 we were the only people in the restaurant but by 2000 hours the place was packed. The food is consistently good. We opted for the 40... More

we tend to eat early which can be a problem in S France but although the first customers the other evening we had a lovely dinner with all the trimmings, the appetisers were fun, all was explained and allergies taken into account. The wine list was good with a wide range and help to select a local wine. Although nouvelle... More

The Graines et Garennes is a local treasure serving delicious food mostly sourced from local suppliers. The service is always excellent and we have no problem heartily recommending this restaurant.

We were out cycling and thought we would go to la tonnelerie for lunch, however they were shut, had read reviews of this restaurant. We were impressed with quality of food, service and outside dining area (weather helped here as sun was shining). Staff very helpful, definitely worth a visit if you enjoy a good dining experience.

Thank Phil H
