Recommended for our group to give it a try. All have reasonably sophisticated palates and have eaten in many establishments. This one rated right there with interesting cuisine - primarily Italian. Quaint decor in restored medieval cottage lends itself to the dining experience. Service was...More

Recommended by the owners of #Villalafage (Bournel) we had lunch here with our 2 boys of 10 and 13 years old. It was fantastic and delicious with kind waitresses. As if we had our holiday in Sardine! When you nearby Pujols, have a stop! Part...More

We didn't believe all of the bad reviews on Tripadvisor about this odd Sicilian restaurant in France. Big mistake! We tried it with friends. Our table was dirty, the decor unappealing and the lavatory dirty. The menu is breathtakingly complicated and we simply didn't know...More

A coupe de champagne to start proceedings with a thin slice of toasted tuna, then onto the langoustines which were superb. The main course was a whole pigeon slow roasted so it melted in your mouth with sweet potatoes. The finale was the Creme Glacee,...More

Astonishingly poor food in a charming setting. I was embarrassed for our hosts who had recommended it..The size of portions was presumably meant to compensate for their contents...not a pleasant episode.

Pujols is one of the prettiest places I have ever visited. A stunning medieval hill town where everybody takes incredible pride in their surroundings. Smeralda is no different, and, taken at face value, would easily score an excellent. Sadly the quality of the cooking did...More

Visited for lunch and chose le plat du jour at €15. The courtyard is most pleasant as is the restaurant itself. Our starter was superb and the highlight of the meal, could have devoured it for all three courses and would then have given them...More

Stylish, inviting restaurant which we noticed and booked whilst visiting Pujols. Wish we had not bothered and given the 100 euro cost to charity.... It's food and wine is Sardinian yet the menu is only in French and English, fortunately the enthusiastic waiter took us...More

Excessively rainy Sunday, starving friends, wet and fast visit of a picturesque village and the risky discovery of the restaurant in the entry of the old town: difficult to miss it as the location is perfect. The restaurant is welcoming with a patio garden and...More
