Nice looking place, quite large but all very average

After walking about Orleans, my wife and I decided to try this place out as it was busy (in comparison to most others locally) and looked OK. Got seated quickly and selected our meal from an English menu. My cauliflower soup was delicious if a little cool. Both entrecotes whilst nice cuts of... read more

My friend and I were looking for a nice restaurant with a friendly atmosphere. We were not disappointed. The menus were larger than the table we were sitting at so it took a while before we ordered. Starter, main dish and dessert for €26 sounds a bit expensive but it's good value considering the overall food quality. The restaurant is... More

This restaurant was very, very busy. Service etc was ok, though they were a bit grumpy about our 12 year old having the child's menu; she is tall for her age, but I did feel like getting her passport out! I thought that items were a little on the pricey side, and that the food was more assembled that cooked,... More

Friendly service, a wide selection on the menu with something for everyone. A great location on a corner with seating outside for watching the world go by.

We were a goup of 20 in this large restaurant, thats still no excuse as we put our orders in a few days in advance. On arrival there was already a large group next to us being served. A pity we couldnt sit outside to enjoy the summer evening, as indoors was extremely hot with lack of ventilation/ fan. A... More

We ate here on a very busy Saturday night but, contrary to other reviewers, found the service to be extremely efficient and friendly. Empty bread baskets and tap-water bottles were exchanged for full with splendid efficiency and we were offered an English menu but had great service after opting to stick with French. Another English family were given the services... More

We ended up here after an abortive trip to a pizzeria in Orleans. It took a while on a busy, warm Saturday evening to get a table, but once we were seated service was OK - and the maitre d' seemed like a bit of a character! The food was typical bistro fare - steaks, salads etc. I had a... More

At 8.30pm on a Friday evening we sat at one of the several empty tables outside this restaurant only to be told, without explanation, that the restaurant was full and it was "impossible" to serve us. Au revoir? I don't think so.

Working in the restaurant business for last 9 years, I can quickly observe what is going on in a restaurant. Today around 12 we decided to have lunch in this place as it was recomended in our travelling guide. We were welcomed by a nice man, given a great table by the window. He was swamped, even if the restaurant... More
