Excellent menu in a great venue

Very good menu - plenty of choice. Quality of food was good and service was friendly and helpful. A small but popular restaurant tucked away off the main road

Excellent service, excellent food, excellent wine. What more could anyone want? The interesting menu was displayed on a blackboard, and the large wine list had an excellent range of local wines.

You have to choose bunny in the pot when the restaurant is named just that. I did, and was not disappointed. Tender and delicious rabbit stew. I naughtily had Os a Moelle to start as you don't often see it and it was a huge portion and delicious but it's toast was a little harsh on my teeth. Wines by... More

Overall we were disappointed with the service and food having received strong recommendations to dine here. We did not received the promised warm welcome or excellent food. Sensed an air of arrogance and inattentiveness. We received a very poor wine recommendation. Perhaps complacency is setting in with all of these positive reviews??

Tucked away in a street just one block back from the river, near Notre Dame des Ardilliers sits this little bistro. Monsieur has a laconic laid back manner, but the food is far from laid back. I had delicious snails followed by the Pot au Lapin....a huge pot served with a delicious gravy and vegetables and a saddle of rabbit... More

Having eaten here on a number of occasions with both French and English friends I have never been dissapointed with the consistency of this great little establishment. The welcome is warm and service helpful from both the proprietor, with his wry sense of humour and the young lady working with him. On our most recent visit we sat outside on... More

Sometimes in life you can waste your few precious days on this planet by over thinking and over debating about where is the place to eat etc. Save time. Just go here. You will have to, eventually. it's the rules. Le Patron is fairly loosely attached to the wall and has a dry humour and friendly smile which many of... More

Our friends recommended this restaurant .We loved the ambience and loved the food. The service was excellent , the staff were helpful and informative on choice of wine and food. We had no problems on getting a taxi to the restaurant but had difficulty in securing one for our return journey. Taxis are limited here. However, the owner went beyond... More
