Phenomenal meal, attentive service

If you are a foodie, this is a must visit restaurant. From start to finish, dinner was impeccable. By far, the best meal of our trip. Great ambience.

Even if you you feel that the chef is doing his best, the customer will not feel comfortable in a place where they do not say hello when enter, do not take your coat (you have to keep in behind your chair) and where the lady owner seems to have an attitude with the people she does not know...

Having read the reviews I was expecting great things out of this restaurant but was very disappointed on several counts but let's start with the good point. First I really appreciated that the waitress told me the wine I had ordered was a sweet wine which I was happy to change to a dry one. Second, the food did have... More

This was the reaction from the proprietress when asked how could it be that a Michelin starred restaurant, in France, could run out of rose wine ! We were 6 friends who had booked lunch yesterday, to celebrate a birthday - five only drank rose and at first a young waitress told us that they had run out. Eventually, Marie-Helene... More

Superb food, wonderful service and all at a great price. Interesting flavours and wonderful combinations and all from a Geordie lad in France. We'll definitely go back.

We always look forward to going back to Le Bistrot des Saveurs. Each time we return it reaffirms what a top quality restaurant this is, both from a front of house point of view with service and wine and also from the kitchens perspective. Marie-Hélène makes excellent selection on the wine front knowing our preferences and Simon absolutely can do... More

What a joy! Beautiful calm surroundings, slick service from a great front of house team and to say the food was amazing is almost doing it a disservice! Astonishing Michelin lunch with creative and culinary skills that many places can only dream. Great wine list and what good value We eat regularly in 1, 2 and 3 starred restaurants and... More

We had visited this restaurant about a year previously with the same friends as on this occasion - it is unfortunate that I have to write that we were all disappointed after a most enjoyable meal on our previous visit. Having been seated, we had to wait about fifteen minutes before receiving any attention - it was a warm day... More
