Kicked back here for a few beers and a coffee while watching the Euros. Located directly across from the Hotel de France it has a steady stream of people constantly coming and going. Good place for a drink and a chat.

Pretty dark cafe in the centre of Valence, but nice. Also possibility for dinner. Service is fast and friendly. They do an effort to speak English although they do not have English menus. Portions are not abundant but enough. Food was ok

Directly opposite Hotel de France. Good beers and friendly service. Quiet in the afternoon (due to the rain no doubt) but very lively at night. Regret not having tried the restaurant which was very lively in the evening. Next time perhaps.

If you search a place that combines a sound kitchen and a nice terrace on the main Valance Boulevard, this is a good place to stop by. Of the four nights that I spent in Valence, twice I had the dinner to le Bancel. The...More
