While making a stopover on our trip to the South we dined in the Bistro of Georges Blanc. The chicken dish was tasty but, it looked like leftovers as the "supreme" was not there but some meager wings.. The wines were very expensive except for the Beaujolais crus ave 30 euros all the other wines were 70+ euros... Next time??... More

Overall a disappointing lunch, the service wasn't great and the food was over priced. The famous poulet bresse was tasty but it was a very small portion for the price, just a drumstick and a thigh none of the succulent tasty breast I had been dreaming of! It was served with a very small portion of pomme purée. Thank goodness... More

I decided to write my review in English so that a larger audience could beneficiate from it. My title says it all. So let's go into the details and the argumentation. The worst of all is the service. We had a waitress called Mathilde who served us like if we were in a countryside bar restaurant. I'm not used to... More

This is the second tier of the George Blanc Gasto Realm and it is reflected in the price and decor. However,the setting is still idyllic as the dining room opens out to a lovely garden. The first thing that caught our eyes or nose rather is that unmistakably aroma of a top notch baguette at reception stand. The menu fix... More

This restaurant is in a beautiful setting, request the terrace to be sat facing the lovely garden. The food is reasonably priced with a €38 and €60 tasting menu plus an a la carte menu. They have reasonably priced local wines and champagne by the glass. The artichoke starter was delicious and the eclair was the best I've ever had... More

On arrival we arrived at the desk, but nobody rushed to greet us, in fact two member of staff eventually came over only because the phone was ringing and then as an after thought did one of them think to ask if we had a booking and then showed us to our table. We all enjoyed our various dishes on... More

I have been coming year for years en route on the drive from to south of France from London. Very good chicken either roasted or in a cream sauce which is a signature recipe. Very nice laid back bistrot type other food available. Very good wine list.

Totally overrated, 3 of us paid a brief visit for a light lunch on Monday 15/08/16, service none existent. Drinks dumped on the table, water not poured. Had to ask for bread after food had been served. The only female at the table, each time I was served last. Tomato Mozzarella salad well presented, Frogs Legs tasty, Liver Gateaux -... More

The decor must have been designed by Dame Edna - but that's ok. What's not ok is the haphazard service (nothing against trainees but they need far more guidance than given here) and the frankly indifferent cooking. Had the chicken of fame but found it quite disappointing, as in nothing special at all. Sorry to say, this part of the... More

Great decor but we found it disappointing. Food was not so good, price very high and service not great. We spent 176 Euro for 2 people which included only a half carafe of wine, 2 glasses of wine and a G and T plus our Meal. Our French is not good and we found some of the menu hard to... More
