Where to eat in Valence : Part 1 – Part 3 – Part 4 – Part 5

My Little Warung

Beside the beautiful Place Saint Jean I saw the sign couple times before I finally came in. I finally came in thanks to one of my friend, she wanted to have lunch there. What a surprise: original concept, nice decoration with pictures from founders’ travels and overall really nice food, very different from what we usually found in Valence. Thanks Alison for the recommendation. Perfect if you don’t have so much time and you don’t want to have a McDonalds 😉

A little more: They serve you from 11am to 10pm without a break.

Price: Between 8 and 12€ meal food with a drink

Le Briand

I walking in front of this place for years I know but I never take the time to stop by. Honestly I though it was a crappy place without any interest, even a little old. Such a surprise when I discovered this ambiance. Very trendy with zebra coughs, Monte Carlo Rallye frames on the wall ! Very welcoming, food different from the usual traditionnal food, everything is so good. The menu changes often, but if you got the tuna go guys it’s amazing I tried it yesterday 😉

Price :15-30€

Brasserie Saint Martin

That one is not really in Valence, but Saint Marcel les Valence, enough closed to be add. Very trendy in this place all the family works together. Food is amazing, you can eat traditionnal or more trendy food, the team is very welcoming too. I loved having a drink on a Club vintage cough. Really love the mood there. I tried for lunch too, fast and efficient 😉

Price : meal 25-30€ at night, 20€ for lunch.

Les tables de Jeanne

Walking on the street I saw the restaurant, I love the name but impossible to find it online. I knew after that one the new name for a closed restaurant. I never tried to one before but I like the decoration here, everything is so worked, no place for random here. All the food is bio and local. Menu is minimalist but change really often depends on the season and products available. For your information I got ravioles on the pictures 😉

Price : 25€ the all meal.

Vegan friendly.

Le Bancel

I usually have a drink at the Bancel, not a meal. Back on the years I though it was too expensive for the offer. But times change. I tried again for lunch and dinner and I have to say they work on their weaknesses. For lunch is pretty fast and the price is okay, it’s still the ambiance we love in this place: terrasse with sun all day to enjoy summer evening with friends. Even the restaurant is better now I will always  recommend you the place for a drink with friends.

Price for a lunch : around 12€ (even more if you do just food and dessert)

Le Shalimar

Let’s go to the Place Saint Jean for a culinary travel. Can’t remember the last time I had Indian food. Or maybe it was when my Canadian roommate cooked, anyway. But I loved discovering new flavors. I heard it has really good reviews and I can confirm it when I saw all the delivery guys from Domadélis coming pick it up. I tried the discovery one, you can try different food it’s a good deal. Oh you really have to try cheese Naan, amazing !!!

Price: between 13 and 30€ depends on meal and lunch or dinner.

La Gondola

It’s not only the restaurant from a #BeFringFitCrew ‘s girl, it’s also a really tasty place for pizzas. Their speciality ? The Gondola you can see on my picture. A pizza which looks like a canoe with salmon. A huuuuge success in the place. I liked to be welcome in Italian too, something more than help you feel like you are in Italy.

Price: 8-15€

148 Avenue Victor Hugo

where eat in Valence


Known to be the best place to eat sushi in Valencia, many of you have recommended me this address and I thank you! We feel the fresh products, we appreciate the welcome of the staff! Just for the name of the street you are obliged to go! I tested the menu discovered, these are trays prepared in advance so I did not have to wait.

Price: menu available here and here. Discovery menu at 11 € !!

Le Sarment

Since 6 months I pass by this restaurant every morning and every evening without ever having stopped. Wrongly ! I tested the salads to go: copious and varied you start from the base and you add 4 ingredients of your choice in the list which leaves you a possibility of combinations important enough not to be bored. Then I also tested a meal at noon with a classic: duck breast! It allows to quickly judge a place, the Sarment passed the test;) The advantage is that the card changes every 12 weeks (to check I do not have the exact number in mind)!

Small plus: the palm trees on the terrace that really look like a holiday while it’s only the lunch break at work;)

Price: 9 € for a salad to take away, 24 € for a lunch menu.
