Service was slow; burger was average

Our biking group went here because we heard they had good burgers. We were the first ones in for lunch on a weekday. It took an exceptionally long time to be served - even for France. My burger was average. I got cheese and bacon on it but the bacon was barely cooked. The fries were warm and... read more

We went there after recommended by a hotel nearby. Though shocked heavily by very hard rumors, I believed only the recommendation with slight thinking of the reason why the hotel recommended me such a bad restaurant. And we found the rumor was totally reverse and we could get a very good dinner. Anybody has his individual taste and some people... More

Food was good, but the service was terrible - even by French standards. Everyone in the restaurant the evening we went was looking around for the waiter. My son had the fixed-price menu adn specified chocolate mousse for dessert, and then my daughter and I ordered creme brulee, but the waiter thought that was instead of the chocolate mousse.

We felt fortunate to be able to get a table as it was a Monday night (lots of restaurants closed) and we tried a couple of restaurants that looked nice but they were all fully booked. However that is where our luck ended. They served our children's drinks quickly, but my husband and I had to wait approximately 30mins for... More

The Service was terrible - we waited over an hour between starter and main course. We also had to ask for our drinks to be brought to us on more than occasion. When the main course did eventually arrive, my wife's steak was under cooked and the fries were cold, but we didn't want to risk sending it back to... More

We took advantage of the lunchtime "formule" which was good value - main course was a well cooked steak with ratatouille, although we did also order a side of fries which made the meal a little more substantial. The dessert was a little dry for a pear tart, but edible. Nice atmosphere and courtyard, and pleasant enough food. The staff... More

As a resident, I have eaten here twice and was very disappointed. the second time some French clients sent back their steaks as "not fresh" Since then my friends who have eaten in this restaurant, often as tourists were not happy, and last month I had friends who were sitting down there and were warned off by some Americans.

We were looking for a simple meal after having enjoyed a large lunch earlier in the day. This was a poor choice. It's a nice looking place with a hip vibe, but the food is not good. Keep walking, you can do better.
