Lunches from Monday to Friday will be taken on the onsite canteen. As both the ILL and the ESRF will be shut down during the code camp period, the canteen will not be open for dinner and on the weekend.


If we want to eat together in town in the evenings then many places will need a booking for the number we have. Suggestions will be added here in due time.

  • In 2016, I ate at the 'À la Fortune du Pot' which was very good (a local couple running the restaurant), but it might need a reservation beforehand. Editing note: the aforementioned couple have retired. Apparently it has now been taken over by younger relatives? so still open but somewhat different menu. I hear it is still pretty good but definitely not the same.
  • La Ferme a Dede —nice option for Raclette for example
  • La Table Ronde - very nice traditional place
