Eating

Place de l’Horloge is crammed with touristy restaurants that don’t offer the best cuisine or value in town. Delve instead into the pedestrian old city where ample pretty squares tempt: place des Châtaignes and place de la Principle are two particularly beautiful restaurant-clad squares.

Restaurants open seven days during the summer festival season, when reservations become essential. At other times of year many are closed at least two days a week.
