We just stopped by for coffee on the terrace and to admire the view. The coffee was rather expensive (nearly 8 euros for two) but the view is exceptional. The service was fast and efficient. We will be back.

The Café is situated on the stunning Place Stanislas. We were attacted by the "Plat du jour" (lunchtime special) but there was none left at 13.30. I chose instead a prawn and vegetable salad and my husband a chicken fillet with chorizo. My salad was served in a wooden steamer basket which made it difficult to cut the contents. The... More

Fabulous setting in the Place Stanislas. Very average quality and service - expensive for what it was - €95 for two.

The Cafe is located at the south-western corner of the PLACE STANISLAS, the famous UNESCO world heritage. Clouded it was, we had to wait waiter or waitress to come and take order. For late lunch we ordered Quiche Lorraine, which was delicious and fit for Beer ABBAYE. Much fun to look visitors were caught by rain and rush into the Cafe.

Of the two remaining, we chose Cafe Fo (featured in a Daily Telegraph review). It was the wrong choice. To be clear up front, I do not eat meat but... More

Unfriendly, uninterested waitress, food mediocre, bland in taste. Big chinks of uncut lettuce seem to be latest fashion in France..Why? The view is great (Place de Stanislas, 1 of the ost beautiful squares in the world). Had dinner here, first and last time.

I visit Foy every time I come to Nancy. The food and service are both good. The wine pairings with the Prix Fixe Menu are well done.
