Six of us (four Americans and two Australians) had a long lunch during the week we stayed in the area. The owner greeted and seated us (her English is impeccable) and the service throughout the meal was excellent even though the... More

We visited Montreuil Bellay on market day and were struggling to find somewhere for lunch. The Hostellerie was not obviously open, but do not be put off by the exterior. We had a very good 3 course lunch in a very French ambience. It was great to see the locals greeting each other and having lunch together on market day.... More

One of my favourite restaurants in this area. Top quality French food beautifully presented. Only 19 euros for 3 course dinner inc steak. Staff are very professional and pleasant. I highly recommend this restaurant. I have added that this is a child friendly venue, but I would have to add that it would be for only children that can behave... More

Had the set menu (mid priced) and it was excellent. Kids had burgers, which were very nice and we had the pork. Great food and super service. Sat outside in the courtyard. Very enjoyable lunch.

We have been coming to Montreuil Bellay for over 12 years and have tried all the eating experiences on offer and since Patrick and Beatrice took over Hostelerie St Jean it has easily become the best restaurant in town. Patrick, the Chef, has a wonderful talent of producing lovely flavours even when serving the simplest of ingredients. They say the... More

We landed here by accident as the restaurant we wanted to go to was closed. But what a wonderful surprise! We felt extremely welcome and appreciated. We had our meal on the terrace which was a really lovely feature; from the outside, you would never expect such a nice terrace. The food itself was truly excellent. I had the burger... More
