Restaurant Numero 19

Just a short drive away in the larger town of St Junien. This restaurant is owned by 2 sisters Josie and Jenni, this small but quaint restaurant is an idea place to sit and eat. Fantastic food with a smile, they always have a vegetarian option. Can sometime get very busy in the day as it is on the pedestrian street so we recommend you book first as not to be disappointed.
Comes highly recommended by ourselves and previous guests.
