We spent two excellent evenings with the most welcoming hosts whose passion for their restaurant and food clearly shows. The Oysters were delicious and unlike Paris restaurants, weren't scorned when asked for them out of season. Such a shame a few people on here put bad reviews for it, they clearly think that because they watch a few cooking programmes... More

This is a small restaurant run by a husband (chef) and wife (front of house). Mostly locals eat there, not tourists. The prices and the wine list are reasonable. We were travelling with another couple. There are different areas to eat - depending on the weather. We visited twice (one of the very few times we went back to a... More

Small and friendly family run hotel. Front of house owner tries very hard and the chef - who comes out to see what is happening all the time - is very capable. We ate in the conservatory which is basic but fine - and away from the traffic which is already a plus in Epernay.

On a Sunday evening the restaurant was very quiet with ourselves, one other couple and one other person. However the food was excellent with the chef producing an interesting amusee bouche and starter. The main fish course was very good and we enjoyed the service and the food but not the silence!

Great scallops appetizer. And the main courses were wonderful as well. My wife and I came here based on a recommendation. Service was a little slow but overall pleasant experience.

We were there with some friends, made a reservation and had the menu. Service was okay but the food was not that great. A friend had the fish but it was not fresh and actually overdue. But did not get any compensation or explanation for the bad fish. An other friend had a toast that completely burned an black. The... More

We stayed at a B&B in Epernay about a week ago and the couple recomended we eat at this restaurant. There is a seafood plate for 58 Euros that includes crab, snails, shrimp and oysters that was MASSIVE... We ordered from the set menu and had a small version of the seafood sampler and it was good. The service was... More

We ended up to this restaurant because it was recommended by people from the place. We were not disappointed but it was nothing to be remembered for. Oysters of poor quality, good bar grille'. Not a good choice of wines. The service was ok. I won't return

Now I admit, I went on a extremely quiet night - me and one other table! But lovely food, great fish soup starter, hen the confit duck. All obviously super-fresh, personal touches, well thought out. Great house wine too.

This was recommended by the chef at another restaurant and we weren't disappointed. Very good scallops and sea bass in nice sauces. Wine wasn't overpriced.
