We visited here on a very busy Sunday evening (the whole of France having a Mid-Summer's Eve Music Festival). Finding a good meal on a Sunday evening in France is a challenge. This meal was excellent, friendly, charming staff; food was superb, full of flavour, but not too much. Very good wine as recommended by the mâitre d. Excellent value... More

This vaulted restaurant is quite amazing by itself not to mention the whole food experience. I have traveled extensively to France and this meal did not disappoint me. It is definitively up to French cuisine standards. The foie gras with cherries and poached pears was very good. The presentation of all my dishes was a pleasure to the eyes as... More

We know French cuisine, and must say that this restaurant represents French cooking at its best. Ingredients are perfect, recipes are inventive, presentation is gorgeous, and taste is sublime. Service was friendly and professional. Prices are remarkably reasonable considering the quality. Restaurants like this are why we come to France.

The three of us thoroughly enjoyed our Valentine's Day lunch at Hercule Poireau. The décor was nice, the service attentive and the food was very, very good and inventive. We would return with pleasure.

I booked a table for friends, all the way from Australia, and paid for them too. The owners managed to be friendly and helpful and the phone, and all went well. My friends were really happy with their meals.

Second time we have been for diner and twice it was excellent and plenty full. We had a great time. The chef speaks fluent English and the service is great too. We'll be back.

We thoroughly enjoyed lunch today at this restaurant. An excellent choice on the set menus and good quantities of food too. We sat out in the "passageway" beside the restaurant which was a peasant experience on a hot sunny day, with a nice view towards the cathedral too. Very friendly and helpful waiting staff. Recommended.
