A typical French cafe. Busy, lively, friendly. Stayed in an apartment next door and staff greeted us as neighbours every day. Had to try their food to be neighbourly - it was excellent. Went back several times for lunch and drinks.

This wonderful spot in the sun in a not so touristy part of old town was a great find. Good selection of food and wine at reasonable prices. The cheese and charcuterie boards were fab!

Outstanding food and excellent service. Wonderful, authentic atmosphere in a traditional, family restaurant. Staying above the restaurant overnight, we were able to witness its bonhomie until the early hours, which was no problem at all. Slightly pricey, but not at all out of kilter with...More

Friendly staff and helpful about their menu. Situated in a shaded square a little off the main roads but close enough to walk from anywhere in town. Their Tartines are varied and of moderate size - more a starter size. We had two each and...More

went out to lunch to celebrate birthdays. Had a nice meal with dessert and coffee afterwards. Beautiful venue under a large, old, leafy tree on a small square just off the beaten track.

Really liked this place - don’t go expecting a gourmet experience, but it’s fun and friendly, the tartines are great (the smoked salmon and the 3 cheeses are highly recommended!) and it’s really well priced, particularly the local wines by the glass or ‘pot’, and...More

Créé en Novembre 2007, le bistrot à tartines Ginette et Marcel connait plus de 10 ans d'ouverture. Nous vous proposons des tartines chaudes ou froides (c'est la spécialité), de tailles généreuses, des soupes façon grand-mère, et un grand choix de desserts faits maison. Ne ratez pas ce lieu au décor typique des années 1940-50, typiquement français, avec des musiques d'époques que l'on peut entendre à toute heure de la journée. Le service est assuré Non-stop, du matin au soir, 7 jours sur 7, toute l'année. Cet établissement appartient à un concept familial. Nous avons les mêmes restaurants ailleurs en France, sous le nom de l'Epicerie : - Lyon 2ème 2, rue de la Monnaie - Lyon 8ème 24, cours Albert Thomas - Rennes 2, rue des Fossés - Nantes 6, place Bouffay
