Stopped here on the way to Bordeaux, excellent food & service at a reasonable price. Make sure to drive to the nearby Chateau Dissay.

“A Very Talented Chef”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

We were staying for a few days at Saint Cyr with our caravan before moving North to Normandy. The camp site at Saint Cyr recommended this restaurant for a good meal. We drove the few kilometres down the N10 to Le Benjimin. It is located on the main N10 and is conveniently located for Futuroscope and the various camp sites and hotels in the area.

The restaurant is situated in a pleasant garden, though the restaurant building could benefit from a coat of paint. However, the circular building with its unusual roof in the style of an oast house made an intriguing first impression. The restaurant is not cheap if one selects from the "carte" but the fixed price menu was affordable for those on a restricted budget and so we went fixed price. The welcome was warm and throughout the service was friendly and struck the right balance between intrusiveness and invisibility. The choice of dishes on the fixed price menu were sufficiently varied and between us we had the beef and the confit of pork. All courses, starters, mains and dessert were excellent with a good balance of flavours. We were very impressed by the standard achieved by the chef. The presentation was first rate and the portion sizes were far from meagre. We left after food and drink in a very replete state. For drinks we only had one glass of wine and a small bottle of sparkling water.

In many good quality restaurants the fact that we were eating fixed price and were not incurring a large drinks bill would have meant that we were treated as second class citizens. Not so here, as mentioned earlier the service was to a very high standard. We thoroughly recommend this restaurant if you are staying in the Poitiers area, or if you are in transit through western France.
