Balazuc has a few little restaurants. Some are open all year and others only in peak season. They’re pleasant, welcoming and offer simple dishes (pizzas, burgers, a range of salads, caillette, ice cream…) and – here’s the best bit- you can walk there.
If you want more elaborate food, here are some great places, most of which are about 15 minutes’ drive from Balazuc. Please be aware that it is best to reserve, maybe not before 8:30 pm, so you have time to share the aperitif with us! And don’t hesitate to mention that you are our guests.
