A Good Recommendation

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel who were not serving dinner on a Sunday night. Always a chancy thing to do but on the whole we were impressed. My wife is a coeliac and so needs to eat a gluten free diet. This was not a problem and the staff and kitchen in particular coped with... read more

We went there for dinner with 12 of my colleagues including some from Asia. The first impression was not so great as the staff was not so welcoming at first. We booked a table outside but we were placed inside anyway which was a bit disappointing. We ordered beers upon arrival but it took a good 20mn before we got... More

We couldn't decide where to eat but we'd had a look at the menu of a few of the restaurants in the square and the fixed price menu here suited us better than the others we'd looked at. The dishes were light, cooked well (perfectly seasoned I should mention) and presented in an unpretentious way, it is supposed to be... More

We decided for the Bistrot because our favorite Japanese restaurant was closed on monday. The place is nice and the service very kind But the food is quite boring. They serve you some bread with aromatised pork fat... No comment. Then the entrances which have very expiring titles but quite simple taste and flavour. Main dishes are covered with sauces... More

We chose this restaurant on the basis of 5 star reviews but we were rather disappointed . The entrees of smoked salmon and asparagus were excellent but the main courses were a bit unappetising - a tough chicken thigh and plain fish with a bizarre purple and green colour scheme. Perhaps we made the wrong choice on a bad day.... More

We went for my birthday while we stayed in Rouen and we thought the place was excellent. Great quality while affordable. The citron chicken was delightful but the desserts really stand out. The raspberry soufflé with licqorish jelly was amazing!

We were very disappointed with this bistro which had been recommended to us by our hostess in rouen. They did not seem to care about our custom despite the booking being made on our behalf by a regular local user. We were greeted with a grunt and escorted to a table for two deep back in a corner of the... More

We were recommended this chic little restaurant by our B&B in Rouen. Although we passed many other interesting restaurants en route, we were glad to find Gill Cote Bistro The menu was simple, offering a choice of four starters, mains and desserts on the table d'hôte menu, but a more extensive a la carte was available. We opted for two... More

We made a reservation two hours before the start of the service. Don't confond the Bistro Gill with the starred Gill restaurant. It is a totally different concept. Le Bistro Gill offers traditional frenche bistro cuisine, with a modern flavour. We were not thrilled about it, but enjoyed the evening.
