We had an amazing meal at Patente et Machin. All of our dishes were exquisite (bison! scallops! foie gras!) and the drink selection was stellar. We made friends with the owners/chefs and we were so very glad to have found this gem.

Entirely staffed by bearded men in cool t-shirts/ball caps. Definitely not the white tablecloth experience, just very fine food, excellent wine and service in a fun environment.

Very reasonably priced, nice atmosphere, and the food was good. I loved my appetizer but I didn't love my meal (the fish of the day) but I may not have just ordered well because all my friends really liked their meal. Very creative desserts. Nice wine selection. Would return.

We we there with another couple and all four enjoyed our meal ! Try anything I'm sure everything is delicious. The beef tartar as an appetizer is served with an egg yolk that has an incredible taste because of its texture obtained by a slow process of cooking. You must try the desserts too ! An homestyle maple pudding with... More

It was a bit of a walk and we got confused between st Joseph west be east but so glad we found it! Very friendly guys with a blackboard of choices which they carefully explained. Food was fantastic and... More

Best place to have a fun dinner in town. And you know what? The food is as great as the party is! You can add foie gras on any plates. This is christmas everyday! The staff is family, everything is perfectly outrageous. Don't go there for a christening party, but for a bachelorette, would be perfect! ;)

Unpretentious and hipster vibe, super friendly and down to earth staff. english skills are a little rough, but they are more than willing to explain the menu and help you out with placing your order (not that you could go wrong with anytong on the menu!) Rillettes de Porcelet tasted like a sweet pork sausage with very mild flavorings, only... More

I have been to this restaurant several times. The food here is delightful, when sweetbreads are on the menu I am very happy. All meat and seafood options are scrumptious and the tartares are always worth it. The guys that run the place are very good at explaining the menu and suggesting wine pairings for the food. I have not... More

Recommended by Alex the hotel bartender, definitely worth going a little out of the touristy way to enjoy the food, wine, and general ambience. Fun and absolutely delicious.

You will fall off your chair. I did a mini-happy dance because the food was off the hook. Ultimately un - pretentious. Bare bone amazingness. Try the mousse de foie de pintade.
