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.

A pleasant atmosphere, good service and a very nice lunch. I had the menu du jour with à salade de thon, all fresh veggies, followed by the plat, Jambon Grill with frites. Only 11,50€.

This restaurant is a gem. The lunch formula is excellent value for money and the dishes beautifully prepared and served. We had rung ahead to check that they would have a vegetarian dish and were assured there would be. Two kir Breton (cider one with...cassis the other blackberry), and a Jack beer (excellent artisanal pression beer with a great flavour) to set us up for the starters. Gateau de Chèvre au Figue was a most original baked dish with excellent flavours and not too sweet. The beef Macedonia was a beautiful piece of meat cooked au point with a tasty salad. We all had the same main course but one version was vegetarian. For two of us, three meats were combined to stuff a baked tomato. The centres of the tomatoes were used to create a rich tomato’s jus to adorn the centrepiece. The vegetarian version was a ratatouille with mushrooms stuffed into the tomato with the same tomato sauce. Both dishes were excellent. Only one of us felt like a dessert after that and the Tarte Tropezienne was a brioche-like sandwich of creme patissiere lovely and fresh and full of flavour without being sugary. The coffees were excellent as was the local rose wine served in a pichet. The bill did not hurt the pocket either. Cyril the Patron was delightful company on a quiet day, and we sent our warmest complements to his wife, our chef.More

A visit to this restaurant/bar is a must when in the area. The hosts, Cyrilles and Sabrina, always greet us like old friends and make us feel very welcome . The food is always excellent and even though we are vegetarian they have create some...delicious meals for us. The customers are a good mix of French and English and it is very popular with both locals and passers by. A meal here is highly recommended but remember to book so as not to be disappointed.More

Evening spoilt by noisy party of English, 8 adults and 4 children. Children running round all night. Food not that good. Crumble Niicoise is a new one to me but is cold ratatouille with crumble topping and goats cheese. Brochette de boeuf was overcooked. Desserts...were the best part.More

Called in one Saturday for family lunch and was not disappointed. The food was excellent and the decor was rustic French. Good service, if a little slow, but we were in no hurry and it was worth waiting for. Will go again.

Very friendly host who is always ready to suggest alternatives. However this is usually not necessary as their menu du jour has 3 or 4 choices for each course. Service is good even when they are busy. Reasonably priced and portions are generous. Tends to...have 'exceptional closures' on days you expect them to be open so check first to make sure!More

Four of us called in for lunch and had a bit of a wait for service, but once started all was good. The decor and table setting are well thought out and the rustic feel and well-spaced tables set a relaxed atmosphere. The patron is...one of that happy sort who is tolerant of our less-than-perfect French and keeps conversation light and friendly. The lunch menu allows two or three courses and offers good quality and value for money in an area where there is plenty of lunchtime competition. The choices on the menu were varied, with something to suit all of my party's tastes. All our choices were well prepared and presented and portion size was plenty. When asked if there was any vinegar for with the chips (not always the case in France) a bottle was produced from his apron pocket with a flourish and a triumphant "Sarson's!" The house red was absolutely fine ... so much so that we needed a second 'picher'. Heartily recommended for lunch in L'Absie. I'll certainly be returning.More

This is our Go-To place for a local easy supper. Basic menu but absolutely delicious, especially the burgers. He used to do great pizzas as well, very disappoited that he has taken out his pizza oven. We are awaiting the next expansion phase to the...kitchen and the (hopefully) larger menu. The best thing about the place is Cyril - he is such a good restauranteur, you will find you just want to keep going back. And his memory is phenomenol - he'll remember you after just one visit!! Ths is by far the best place to go in a 10/15 mile radius of L'Absie. We go probably once a month.More
