“Gardens add to the evening”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

On our first night in France after a wonderful afternoon in the gardens we had a great meal. Service was excellent with the waitstaff helping us decipher the menu. After our dinner we were invited to strl through the gardens behind the restaurant. What a treat!

“Mixed opinion”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

We selected the R. Baudy as our first choice was closed on Monday. At first, it seemed our choice was a good one. The setting in the courtyard was very inviting on this beautiful day. The initial response from the 3 team waitstaff was a bit slow but not unacceptable.

The food was delivered in a timely fashion and although somewhat overpriced, we enjoyed the food selection. And then came the problem...

After waiting patiently for 10 minutes or so to catch the eye of a server to ask for the bill, we were finally successful. Then after another 10 plus minutes, the check was delivered. At this point, we placed our credit card on the payment tray and assumed they would settle the charges shortly. We had followed the same procedure for the first 7 days of our trip and it worked perfectly.

After 15 more minutes of waiters passing by and paying us no attention, we picked up the bill and proceeded to the inside bar. The bartender quickly handled our bill and we left ( after telling him their service stunk!!).

While we realize European service is slower by design than our usual service times in the States, being ignored is another issue. We would strongly warn that you need to have unlimited time and patience to have a lunch meal at the Baudy.

Lovely food and helpful service, but also a historical experience in one of the leading sites of Impressionism

“Adequate”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Ate dinner in the garden under lovely shady trees. Food not very interesting on 25,90 menu. Starter of walnut salad was exactly that - a bowl of lettuce and a pile of walnuts - no effort to make it look nice. Main course was lamb kebab - meat a bit chewy. Pichet of Cotes du Rhone very thin! It was all o.k. but that's about it. Service was fine.

“Untouched by time”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Arrived at this historic restaurant and were greeted like old friends. The garden was full but we agreed to wait and within 5 minutes a table was free, cleared and re-laid for us. The service was extremely good. They were rushed off their feet and never stopped, all with a really good happy fun attitude. The meal was wholesome, good sized portions and the set meal was value for money. Having been disappointed by other restaurants in Giverny this was a pleasant surprise considering how busy they were on this hot day. Well worth a visit. Girls/Boys - if you want to visit the loo, you have to go through the old restaurant via a lovely unspoilt back garden - all of it untouched by time.
