“Great location, bad food”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

The online site looked marvelous, the location is good, the price seemed fair. But the waiter was surly, the toilet dirty, and the food mediocre. An elderly gentleman--the owner--was courtly and pleasant, but that didn't make up for the rest of it.

“Good food, bad service”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

We ate at Galerie M in July 2013, height of the tourist season, there were only two waitresses and they could not cope with the volume of people. It took 50 minutes for them to bring our drinks after prompting, the food was slow and we had to push them for the bill. The food itself was OK, the pork was excellent but the 'medium' beef was rare.

“Surprisingly good food”
Reviewed 27 June 2013

One evening in Monpazier, this was almost the only restaurant open, so we chose it by default. We sat inside and it was not busy. The service was a bit flat at first, but the waiter became more friendly as we practised our fractured French. The good surprise was the food - we all chose different things (pasta, risotto, pork, salads) and everything was delicious. The décor consists of some original art (not to our taste) and simple tables. I wouldn't rush back, but it was fine for the price.

“Good Value in pleasant surroundings”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

Ate here last November and service and food was good. Just as good this time eventhough the rain made us sit inside. Our waiter was patient and helpful with our choices and the food tasted delicious - a really welcoming and pleasant restaurant.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

We ate at Gallery M this week and enjoyed it very much. Bottom line is it is good food at a reasonable price (we had the plat du jour). We had no problems with service and, although we didn't eat here again during our trip because we wanted to sample other restaurants, we did return to enjoy a pre-dinner drink sitting on the square each evening of the time we spent in Monpazier. It is perfectly located and well worth a visit.
