Well worth checking out, despite being on the way out of Giverney. The lights on the road help, and you will get a very friendly welcome and great food even if it's not the biggest menu around. It's right next to the small river and listening to the bull frogs whilst you eat is à new experience. My wife and... More

Very simple and full of atmosphere but lack of choice and not enough tables to make a real guingette with lots of clients and music. Cool green surroundings.

We thank you for this post. Yes, we may understand you felt a lack of choice, but we only want to serve fresh and home made dishes, wich can be incompatible with a huge menu. And some nights, there may be many music and dancers ! More

A friendly informal eating experience. Unpretentious French food at its best. Great salad, charcuterie and cheeses. Lovely outdoor setting beside a stream. For me it was the perfect end to a perfect day visiting Monet's garden.q

This place is casual with friendly service. The food is well prepared and very fresh. It is informal and relaxed in a great setting by the river. Its best enjoyed when the weather is nice as its all outdoors. There is one table that is covered in case of rain.

We ate here and really enjoyed it. Such a sweet little deck built over a little stream of water that will only moments later be making its way under Monet's bridge. The menu only had a couple of choices...both of which were delicious, and the dessert was outstanding. Try the chocolate fondue! I would avoid it if raining. The wine... More

Tables on a porch by the river, surrounded by nature, helpful, friendly service and great fresh, tasty food with vegan options ( we had a vegetable soup and a hearty salad)....what's not to like?

After visiting Monet's garden we were unimpressed with what was on offer nearby, you'll see what I mean when you are there. We asked the young lady in the store nearby with all the umbrellas and bubble machine out the front where was nice to eat, she suggested La Guinguette. Really nice setting beside the little stream, outdoors and peaceful.... More

Food is simple but really good and fresh. Outside seating in the garden by the little river side for a "impressionist" decor.
