Restaurant Recommendations – Où manger le dimanche?

RESTAURANT RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SUNDAYS & MONDAYS

Many local restaurants are closed on Sunday & Monday evenings. These are our recommendations of those that are usually open. (Distances & driving times are from the Haras du Gazon.) Click on the links for more information.

It’s always worthwhile calling to reserve a table, even if you do this on the same day. You tend to get a warmer welcome and you can confirm that the restaurant isn’t closed e.g. for annual holidays, random other circumstances etc.
