Origan has developed a reputation that pulls in diners from far and wide; not bad given that it is up a narrow alleyway, out of sight and out of mind of the day-trippers.
It is simply essential to have a reservation here (and they don't open Sundays). If you turn up on spec, you should get a table inside after maybe 30 minutes wait, but remember this is a popular place.
I am no fan of pizza, but the pizzas here are excellent. If they delivered to China, we would have them here at least once a week. However, it seems the moped would run out of gas somewhere in eastern Iran.
Favorite Dish: Has to be the pizza, eaten out in the street on a rickety old table, with a bottle of Cote Brulhois rose, while the sun goes down.
Oh, and you never know who you are going to run into at this place.....big celebrities seen here three times in nine days.
Cafe des Sports: Cafe des Sports
It is always difficult to use VT's restaurant categorisation, given that they are firmly aimed at Americans. The Cafe des Sports is a French restaurant, but that hardly creates a useful category in France, quite frankly.
The Cafe des Sports is the most obvious restaurant in Condom, as it spreads across the pavement opposite the cathedral. Quite remarkably, given the picturesque location, it is actually the only restaurant along this stretch.
In summer, it is wise to book ahead if you are in a group of five or more, and it can be difficult to get a table on the pavement at lunch or in the early evening.
This year, giant water sprayers were erected outside, creating a fine mist that was pumped over the diners. to keep them cool.
Favorite Dish: There is a wide range of food on offer, and I think they have an English menu. The place is also known as the Ristorante del Fulvio, so there is a wide selection of Italian food as well.
Note that the outside area is firmly reserved for diners between noon and 2pm and from 7.30pm onwards. If you are staying locally, they do take-away pizzas (pick up from the back door to avoid having to park in the Place de la Cathedrale)
Café des Sports: Affordable!!!
Favorite Dish: Any of the salads!!
Known for its pizza!
Try the 'Plat du Jour' which averages about $22 to $25 Cdn.
