I went here with a friend for dinner and karaoke. Food as good, reasonably priced, and the karaoke on Tuesday nights rocks. About 30 people singing and enjoying food, music and drinks.

We both had the menu of the day and enjoyed our meals - the potato dauphinoise was rather dry, but otherwise, we couldn't fault the food. Portions were good and we liked the assiette of desserts. The staff were friendly and efficient.

Having driven some distance on our way to Zeebrugge, we stayed overnight in Troyes, France. The Town is a beautiful place with many historic buildings and many restaurants to eat in. Because of our travel fatigue, we were looking for something simple and wholesome to eat. The restaurant was very busy and the menu looked like what we were looking... More

We wandered around Troyes, as you do, looking at several restaurants, when we came upon James Joyce, Irish Pub. This had been recommended to us previously, but being an Irish pub, you get a certain view of what they are like. But don't walk by, great set menus, great off the main menu. Although it absolutely poured with rain, we... More

we went here for dessert and drinks, and it was really great! both the extent of the dessert menu, but also the beer-menu! the desserts were great, and this is a fun, relaxed and energic place to be with happy and nice staff! it's easy to stay here for a few hours longer than planned!

Wasn't our first choice, but we were pleasantly surprised by the menu selection. Nice atmosphere, casual and comfortable.

The food is ok nothing special but the staff don't really really seemed like they want to be there, don't let... More

Started going there around 6 years ago when we visited Troyes, but in that time it has changed owners. Now I'm sorry to say it has gone down hill. Maybe have a drink but apart from that move on. There are plenty of eating places in the area to choose from.

Challenge number one is to find a waiter willing to look in your direction Number two is to get a drink. Number three is to find a clean menu. Menu has too many choices. You should only make one choice. Leave. Food is overpriced bland and deeply Unsatisfying. I made the mistake to stay. Waiters were rude and could not... More

If you like awful fast food, covered in cheese and fried stuff then try this place. Part of a chain (including one in Reims and Dijon) this was definitely the worst. My wife left most of hers and the waiter looked a little shocked when we told him why. Not so shocked that he did anything about it, but never... More
