A splendid little restaurant under the shade of a plane tree and on the edge of a sometimes busy square, it conjures up an old-style French vibe - good, wholesome, home-made meals from a wide-ranging menu, a pichet of plonk and time to muse. Yes, it can be busy, but who's in a hurry when the meals are so tasty... More

Arrived in Vernet on my own as waiting for my friends to arrive. So wandered into the square and found this little place with a few tables outside in the shade under the trees. Had a very decent, tasty and filling bowl of pasta and a couple of beers for lunch and it was just what I needed. A few... More

Actually, the food wasn't bad at all, but the whole experience was ruined by possibly the worst service I have ever experienced in a restaurant. Admittedly it was a busy night as there was a band playing, but that's not unusual during the summer at Vernet and still no excuse for the way we were treated. And we weren't the... More

We had watched the paella being cooked earlier on in the day so decided to eat there that night. 17 Euros gave us a massive bowl of food - rice plus a quarter of chicken, mussels, scallops and pork - creme caramel and half a carafe of red wine. Excellent value for money. The waitresses were very attentive and extremely... More

This is a favourite of mine and I always order it in a new restaurant, this one is so good, I always have the same thing when I come although the three course dinners are great value. The service can be a little eratic, and sometimes they are so busy you really do have to wait, but when it arrives,... More

A typical small bistro with a limited menu but very friendly staff, and reasonable prices. The food is simply prepared and plentiful. The fish is probably the best thing on offer. Outdoor seating on the pretty main square.

Our party of four chose not to got for the signature pizzas but instead a steak, a pot roast chicken and moussaka. We also enjoyed copious wine and brandies yet felt so undercharged, and well served, that we were delighted to tip generously. The dishes were huge and wholesome, the ingredients of very high quality, while the staff made us... More

This place is clearly very popular, and you can understand why. People come here for a meal and leave feeling that they have been well and truly stuffed at a very reasonable cost. And this is a credit to the people who run the restaurant. We came here simply on the basis of positive reviews on Trip Advisor, and I... More

Just had the steak, not cooked very well and very tough. House wine rough. This had an appalling affect on my digestive system a little later. If I had to eat there again it would be a safe pizza.

The pizzas here are really good and extremely reasonably priced. Three of us went and could have easily shared two, maybe even one as the pizzas are so big.
