Somewhat of a surprise because it's a place not on the beaten path but it was packed with a full lunch crowd offering an excellent daily fixed menu or a la carte. I've returned several times because the food was excellent, well presented and the service was great and very friendly. This hidden, tucked away Irish Inn, with a touch of BÃ©arn, is a delight with a proprietor who knows how to make a wonderful Irish Coffee.

Impossible to find fault, this sort of glowing review is not needed by the venue itself as they have all the customers they need; a Monday lunch in early November and nearly all the 40+ covers were taken, mainly with locals; so we were wise to book. No, this is aimed solely at the TA brigade who need a recommendation for somewhere perfectly good and excellent value to dine near Monein without any risk of disappointment. Not haut cuisine, but simple tasty fresh dishes, encouragingly limited choices to a few menus, and faultless enthusiastic service; I don't think the Proprietor and her team stopped moving during the Service. Our 3 course MDJ with a glass of local Jurancon sec compris was â¬12.50. Worth every cent. Just bear in mind they are closed on Saturdays.

My wife and I ate here for her birthday. We knew the restaurant for many years in its previous incarnation as La Terrasse and were curious to see what had changed with the new owners............Wow!! What a change!!First impressions - Modern design-led dÃ©cor with bright colours give a vibrancy to the whole dining experience before you've even sat down - on the really comfortable purple tub chairs!The welcome was business-like and warm. We had booked for 8.30pm and it looked like we were the first - but it appeared that everyone else had too and within 30 minutes there were at least 30 covers seated. We weren't rushed - the menu was different. Not pages of formulaic stuff, but half a dozen choices at each course and beautifully described. We had two glasses of Kir Royale whilst we perused and a were brought a plate of delicious "amuses-bouches". We ordered and the maÃ®tre d'hÃ´tel (who I believe is the wife of the chef) took time to explain everything. While we waited for our food, we were treated to a small glass of chilled tomato & basil soup topped with a goat's cheese foam.My wife had a chilled mousse of foie gras that had been poached in port with a beetroot compote and fresh almonds. I had a "breakfast" of langoustines, with the shellfish being presented five different ways including a teapot of langoustine consommÃ© which ranks amongst the best thing I have ever tasted.For our second course, my wife had pigeon three ways with a delicious jus and I had lamb three ways, cooked with black garlic and served on a bed of butter beans.The cheese board was presented at the table and the selection was very local with artisanal PyrenÃ©ean cheeses from the whole east-west spectrum and including both sheep, cows and mixed cheeses and also a particularly good blue which was as good as any Stilton or Roquefort.Just when we thought it couldn't get any better, my wife's choice of a beautifully crafted dessert of 80% cocoa was just delicious - enough after the richness of the meal so far. My dessert was a taste sensation - a marriage of sweet ripe Garriguette strawberries with a black olive & basil dressing, served with a strawberry sorbet in a tuille cone topped with a pistachio cream top. Amazing.The wines were what you would expect for a restaurant of this level and I chose a red wine from the Languedoc for â¬30.Service was excellent - unhurried yet attentive and a brief explanation of each plate was given as the food was placed. Coffee was accompanied by petit-fours - homemade - and were a final flourish to end a wonderful evening. All in â¬200 for the two of us. Somewhere to go for a special occasion knowing that it will truly be special!We thanked the Maitre d'hÃ´tel and as we were walking to our car parked behind the restaurant, the chef-patron appeared from the service entrance and thanked us personally for coming to the restaurant. A nice touch. We will be back soon.

Nous sommes un restaurant de village disposant du seul titre d'Ã©tat qui reconnais la cuisine de cuisinier Ã savoir celui de "MaÃ®tre restaurateur", Ã vocation convivial. Nous faisons une cuisine 100% maison Ã partir de produits bruts, frais et en majoritÃ©s
Right in the village centre, this restaurant has been newly restored from what previously was an old epercie. It has covered outside tables and smart interior as well as an open kitchen. The menu is short and modern, but using local quality, fresh ingredients.At lunchtimes weekdays there is the option of a 'menu de jour' which can be taken as 1 , 2 or 3 courses (9-14.50â¬) plus the regular menu or the large plat de tapas for 16â¬ which would feed 2 for lunch, or 4 or 5 as a snack. In the evenings and weekends it's there is a formule of copious mixed tapas (hot and cold) as a starter, any main course and any dessert at 26â¬, or you can just choose a single plate from the menu- mains from 15-20â¬- although most diners seem to opt for the 3 courses, just go hungry)When we dined our mains were fillet of local truit, a huge steak, and a trio of skewers of duck, kidney and steak, all of which were really very good. The owner specialises in desserts and so there is a great selection. Drinks wise it offers cocktails, all the usual suspects, plus a good range of bottled beers and an interesting selection of reasonably priced wines. Unusally most of the wine is available by the glass which is great. Service is very curteous and friendly. Booking is advisable as it is not very large.
Excellentes pizzas , et nombreux choix, trÃ¨s bon accueil. PossibilitÃ© de manger sur place sur un mange debout,ou Ã emporter. Mention spÃ©ciale pour la pizza dessert(chocolat banane, trop trop bonne)
Contrairement au commentaires d'autres membres, nous n'avons jamais Ã©tÃ© ignorÃ©s lors de nos visites dans ce restaurant. Le personnel nous a toujours immÃ©diatement pris en charge et nous n'avons qu'a nous laisser guider. La nourriture y est excellente et le rapport qualitÃ© prix est bien prÃ©sent. Bref nous considÃ©rons que cet Ã©tablissement mÃ©rite nos visites rÃ©guliÃ¨res (2 ce mois).

The offerings of the "menu" at L'Estaminet were very good indeed for the price. 22 Euros (plus drinks) for a good quality menu with several choices for each course. If you have the Garbure (a vegetable and meat potage) for the starter, be prepared for them to bring you enough for a whole meal - in fact, if you are on a budget, I would suggest that you do have it as a whole meal! My wife had the Garbure (and ate less than half of it), while I had an assiette gourmande, which was a mixture of all sorts - very nice. We both then had duck breast in the local wine - excellent. And a dessert to finish - several choices.I wouldn't hesitate to go back. The only criticism is the slowness of service at times - we did alright, but a couple who were only 10 minutes later than us did not get their main course until just before we left. Still, it was a pleasant evening - and the staff are very friendly too. NB - Dinner is served from 8pm.

This seemed a good place to eat when visiting the church at Moneins. And first and foremost I must say that the fish was really fresh and very tasty. We arrived for lunch spot on 12.00 but before the restaurant had opened, another couple (local, French) got there before us so we chatted to them about the restaurant. They praised it roundly so the anticipation level increased.It was a cold day (snow on the Pyrenees looked stunning in the sunshine) but when Monsieur opened up the fire needed to be stoked to warm the cold room up. It was a shame that Madame tried to seat us on the little table next to the loos when the whole restaurant was empty, however we declined that table and happily sat elsewhere. The restaurant was quite pretty, an old converted barn I guess. First problem was no menu was offered, just the Carte. So we made our choice from that with no problem - the filo wrapped and deep fired gambas followed by the wild bass tempted both of us. Yes, the gambas and dipping sauce were very, very good but such a shame to plonk a bit of salad on the side. And the bass had a lovely flavour, was very well cooked, and again had an excellant sauce to accompany it, but again the accompanying vegetables were underwhelming - I can hardly remember them. We ordered a half bottle of Pouilly Fume but (quel horreur) it arrived at the table already opened. Not wishing to make a fuss but we were certain that the contents were a local Jurancon!We finished with chocolate fondants that were tasty & competently made, though not exciting at all! The whole cost us 100 euros and I would never bother to go back there again. Perhaps we are spoilt with the local restaurants in the part of France where we live, but surely Moneins can do better that that?
