Eating out - Restaurants

In the summer we prefer to picnic in one of the idyllic spots in the Champagne region : between the vineyards round the church of Chavot or at a wooden table next to a pond in the woods.
There are of course a number of good and even excellent restaurants in the region.
The best champagne restaurants can be found in and around Reims and Epernay, but the unpretentious restaurants in the champagne villages will astound you with their superb, regional cuisine.
Those local restaurants are perfect for lunchtimes : quick, tasty and your money’s worth..

You can't miss this place because you will immediately notice the muscular bikes parked in front of the door.
