The attractive courtyard setting and friendly service from the owner and his young waiter are the positives. The food however did not impress and the set menu at 36euros plus 18euros for 50cl carafe of Cote du Rhone left us disappointed. The duck described as cooked in salt was a tough and tasteless piece of magret with a slice of... More

Sorry but having spent the last 25 years visiting and eating in restaurants all over France this was not our greatest experience. The service from the young waiter was excellent, the wine excellent and fairly priced but the food underwhelming. Only one (36 euro ) menu available in the evening and a limited choice ( only two choices of desserts?... More

Centrally located, the restaurant is well worth visiting. I personally found the service very good, with "the boss" reminding me of an older Andrew Marr. I had Salmon followed by tandoori chicken which was very good and not to be confused with the offerings in the restaurants in Britain. A good selection of wines. Yes, it is not a moderately... More

We were four of us dining at this resto last weekend. As it was Saturday night, no set menus were available. The meal was good, but for some reason we were not served " amuse bouche" , the little free appetizers that everyone else got. My friend thinks it was because we didn't order wine....we were very hot and tired... More

Ate here twice on our visit to Troyes and had great meals on both occasions. Typically French restaurant and one of only 3 in Troyes to have official award for using local produce. The owner is a character who we got to know a little and speaks "restaurant English" (his term) and fluent Italian as well. On our second visit... More

I had dinner here on a trip to Troys. We had no reservation and just tried as it was right beside our hotel. (Hotel Clarison Relais st jean ). The owner welcomed us and showed us to our table. He is one of those great restaurant characters that add warmth and a welcome feeling to a restaurant. The dinner we... More

We ate here whilst staying at the nearby Relais St Jean hotel, and had a thoroughly good meal. The proprietor (much mentioned in previous reviews) spoke a limited amount of English, but what little he spoke was extremely helpful. We witnessed another English couple being gently warned against choosing Andouillettes (the restaurant provided a small sample from the kitchen to... More

This is cracking spot in the beautiful and historic city of Troyes. It is almost next door to the hotel, Relais St Jean. If you are staying there, go. If you are not, go. The owner is a lovely guy and tries very hard to make you welcome and is great at translating the menu in to English; should you... More

Fabulous food and friendly service. The owner could not do enough for us explained the parts of the menu we didn't understand, also created a menu for our daughter age 9 although not hard as she will eat anything. Well worth a visit and although it not the cheapest you get what you pay for and no more expensive than... More

let's say that if you come eating here, it's better for you to TAKE A MENU (24 or 35 euros), which is available during the week and not in the week-ends (so .. don't come in the week ends !!). I often see the price of desserts to get an idea of how much expensive a place is, and here... More
