La Grange de Labahou
60, chemin de l’Aire—Quartier de Labahou
This is the best and closest restaurant to Malérargues. As you approach Anduze from Malérargues, you take a right at the third round-about with an Aldi store on your right and a car garage to your front driving down a tree lined road. Their lamb shank confit (souris d’agneau) is the best I have had in France (and are mostly better than the ones I cook at the Bistrot), and the overall cost of eating there is reasonable.
42, Place Pierre Sémard
This has become my favorite restaurant in France; the food is superb and the interior is from another two centuries ago. It is located across the street from the railroad station in Alès. They have a five course menu for 25 euros, which I recommend having. The décor is original art nouveau from 1909.
Les 3 Barbus
Route de Mialet
Great food with a spectacular view, this is where we spent our one day honeymoon in 2009. Use your garmin to find it as the way to get there is a bit circuitous.
The nearest town is Lasalle (follow route D57 in front of Malérargues). There is a good little butcher where you can buy prepared food and other sundries. Plus there is a small, but good pizza-type place where they have excellent thin crusted pizza and also serve traditional French meals. The café in the square is not bad for a coffee, but they also serve meals for lunch.
Anduze is filled with small cafes with food. Do not miss eating the Anduze sausages, but I would not recommend any of the seafood (mostly frozen and not frozen correctly).
