Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had drinks and food here during our stay in Lourdes. The drinks were pretty ok till they ran out of Heineken, the food was average, I've eaten better steaks but their customer service skills were nil. As we were paying our bill, the waiter...asked us why we didn't leave a tip, and went on to say that it was typical of our nationality not to tip, but he prob wouldn't see us again so it didn't matter !! We were going to, but not after that comment. Manners is free but sadly its not obvious in this place.More

Frozen food. Steaks are very tough, had to get my husband to cut it up for me. Pizza is frozen. Ordered steaks at €20.50 each and two were cooked incorrectly. When we told them he became very defensive and pointed to other customers saying he...likes it, he likes it etc etc to our elderly mother. Very confrontational and complete waste of over €100 euro. Merlot was nice. Same quality food for less in surrounding placesMore

Ordered a vegetarian meal and they served meat. We weren't sure about it so we asked and the owner Made sure to reassure us that it was without meat. After a couple of bites we for sure knew we were eating meat. They Just kept...on lying and didn't even dare to apologize. She couldnt even explain to us what her food was made of then... Vegetarians. Be aware. Don't go here, especially not for the service. So so bad!!!!!!! 😡😡😡😡More

Visited nearly every day during our five day stay in beautiful Lourdes. Perfect place for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Very helpful and friendly staff. Great, very well priced and varied set menus (or a la carte) for lunch and dinner. Will definitely go there again...on my next visit.More

The restaurant is a short 5-minute walk from the Sanctuary entrance. We had 2 dinners out of 3 at this restaurant. Nothing exceptional. Good food and good service at reasonable prices - most mains priced between 10-14 Euro. Many dishes are served with a generous...helping of fries; you can ask for spaghetti or rice instead of the fries, It has a small outdoor area and a small indoor area, and a cheerful atmosphere. Good place for a group. You are not rushed and can enjoy your meal at leisure.More

The cafe had a nice vibrant atmosphere but unfortunately the service was extremely slow and the food came out very cold . Rather disappointing. Maybe ok if you just go for drinks .

We have been coming to this watering hole since 1976. It’s not the Ritz but it is probably the most friendly place in Lourdes where you will meet some of the kindest and most interesting people ever. It’s cramped and the prices are on the...high side. The food if you have it is surprising good for such a small busy cafe. We have many fond memories of this place and the staff never seem to change and are always humorous and welcoming. We can’t wait to return.More

Our waiter was excellent! He made food recommendations and his suggestion for dessert was excellent! We had lasagna, shared salad, red wine and then a strawberry tart that was so wonderful!!! Waiter was very attentive to our needs. I would eat at this place again!

A group of eight of us chose to eat here on a wet, miserable evening. Two tables were pushed together to accommodate our party which was a bit of a squeeze. The waiter assured us that they served gluten free options but failed to tell...us how restrictive the choices would be. The 2 coeliacs in the party ended up with entrecôte steaks and green beans as the chips were not gluten free! The steaks were well cooked but we would probably have chosen to eat elsewhere had we realised how restrictive the gluten free options were for two of our party.More

Despite decent food, the very poor service, along with the waiter's refusal to split a bill between 2 couples left a bad taste in our mouths.

Great atmosphere with lots of space for large groups. Staff are multilingual, and opening hours are long, but service was slow and occasionally rude. I ate here three times in a week as it was convenient for the grotto, and had a drink here with...friends most evenings for a week, but even as a "regular", I left one day when I hadn't had any success in ordering food after 15 minutes. Unusually for Lourdes, toilets are on the ground floor, which might be handy for some Lourdes visitors.More

If you are bored of eating pizzas and fancy something different, this restaurant is the place as they do pretty good beef steaks with French fries 🍟/ Chicken Roast with fries again and loads of other food too on the menu which I don’t very...well recall now, sorry. Rated 5 star ⭐️ for the attentive service and for the food we ordered along with some nice-chilled beer 🍻.More

Stayed at Lourdes for 3 nights. Brancardiers Cafe next door is a Godsend and offered great options for breakfast (Ham and Eggs), lunch (pork chops and lamb chops). The waffles with chocolate and cream were also nice. Hospitality is exceptional. Will come here again and...again.More
