We stopped in to have lunch here and even though they were very busy, the service was excellent and friendly. The food was simple home style food in good quantity and excellent taste. The prices were a little higher , but in a tourist area this is to be expected. Overall I would rate this a good experience.

We went for dinner with high expectations after the previous night at Chez Bruno (fantastic cuisine) We chose Chez Hippeau for their advertised menu (that included onion soup... We all felt like having onion soup) and for the nice setting on the terrace . The service was fast but we were served the worst onion soup that we had in... More

I have to say, this surprisingly turned out to be one of the most delicious meals we had over our 2 weeks in France. The restaurant is nice, not too touristy, with decent ambience and friendly service. The menu is full of good, hearty meal choices, very homemade cooking kind of options. I ordered the pork chop with honey sauce... More

There is better service and food for the price. Ok if no particular expectation. The pork was dry and the tartare was Ok ish. Fries were not as good as the presentation suggests.

Atmosphere was a bit dry, but they served up good hearty food at a reasonable price. Not a gourmet place, but no complaints!

Good basic food - salads, burgers and French dishes. Not gastronomic - just casual fare. Service was fairly prompt and done with a warm friendly demeanor.

We stopped there in a rainy Monday. It's was busy, we got seated, it took a while to get to us we ordered. I ordered vegetable soup and a mini burger. My soup was carrot only, and not of a taste, I had to add a lot if salt and pepper. My mini burger was suppose to be medium, but... More

Please avoid, while there were two nice waiters, we had a long haired blonde lady who was horrible - to everyone, not just us. Food is very average also. We ended up paying for two coffees instead of one - lots of apologies but given the rest of the evening, maybe it wasn't a mistake?
