Another of the many restaurants on the Rue St-Jean-du-Pérot, this is one of the best ones! Although very busy, the service was great and we loved sitting out on this amazing road watching all the comings and goings as we ate. We ate spring rolls and aubergine with mozzarella for our starters, followed by chicken curry and duck with camembert... More

Found restaurant on recommendation. Good location by quay. Staff friendly. Ate outside with plenty of room by table. Very quick service. Superb food, cooked to perfection. Caters for all tastes and very popular. So good we ate again at this restaurant and could not fault the experience.

The sauces on the plates were great, but, the foods themselves were average and not as good as we expected having read other reviews.

Took a punt on a street where all of the restaurants look good. La Boussole created some interesting takes on French Thai fusion dishes. My wife's Thai green bouillabaisse (they don't call it that) was fantastic as was my tartare au saumon. It's not amazing but worth a visit.

It was by chance that we have chosen this restaurant and it wasn't bad at all. Very busy in that sunday, but the waiter founded a table for five of us. The atmosphere was nice, The food was a "regal3, from the starters to the desserts. Everything was tasty, difficult to choose which was the best. Everybody from us enjoyed... More

Have visited La Boussole several times, always very good food & service, French food with an Asian twist. Some very interesting flavours in nice surroundings.

I had dined at a restaurant next door the previous night and was hoping for a similar experience at La Boussole. It didn't come close. The service was good but the meal was the worst that I had in 3 weeks in Europe. I suspect the chef had taken the night off
