The local is not so nice, but the served food is good and with a good variety of the offer. Also the proposed beers are good and the service is in the average

Very good local foods with reasonable price. Menu is relatively small but very tasty. Cozy interior. Communication in English was a challenge.

Le Bistrot was full with locals having a New Year's Day lunch. The staff provided a friendly and attentive service throughout our meal. We chose from one of the two menu options: each features two starters, two mains and a choice from the dessert menu and one can mix and match from the two menus. As with the adjoining Charles...

We brought of group here and they prepared a separate dining room for us which was nice. We had the room to ourselves and were seated at one big table which was also great for our group. Everything from amuse bouche to appetizer to entree to dessert and wine were perfect! We enjoyed everything so much we changed our plans... More

As we stay near here decided to go here despite mixed reviews, wish we had not. Firstly, although the restaurant was very busy there was no atmosphere although service remain efficient. This sums up the place, efficient. My meal was bland with little taste and at 25 euros for two course was on the high side for being out of... More

My wife and I went for for dinner at this restaurant while staying at a nearby hotel. We were disappointed by two things. The main problem was that there was no Menu in English or with English translation. I understand a little French and was able to consult a French-English dictionary on my smartphone, so that we were able to... More

Enjoyed the food, fois gras plus magret canard with strawberry tartlette. However wait staff were more interested in flirting with each other rather than serving. Totally confused them I was a solo diner. Need to get some manners, treated couple next to me better even though they ordered only 1 course! Won't go back!

Nice choice of food. Not very expensive. Outside the center of town but near our hotel and on a tram line. I had difficulty in communicating in English with our waiter but OK with my poor French and help from another waiter.

This restaurant still produces excellent food and the menu is great value for money but I feel that they may be trying too hard and its not quite as it was in years past. Still recommended though.
