Yes there are some nice B&B places easily within walking distance. We stayed at Le Clos Saint Martin - very quirky and they make their own yoghurt as part of breakfast, which was the best I've ever tasted!!

You need to direct your question to the restaurant. I only reviewed it. They can fit 30 in though but they are normally busy so book early!!
