Really very good authentic French menu. Very nice and extensive wine list. Warm and cozy place for us on a rainy night, close to the Grand Hotel. Staff was excellent

This restaurant located near the main square is well known for its traditional local cuisine. We took the menu (Gourmand (32€). Each course was a delight. The service is also excellent. The restaurant is also quite so we really spent a great time.

Truly authentic and pleasant food, we tried some different restaurant during our week in Poitiers and it's the one you should try if you juste have to try one. The restaurant is composed of a serie of little calm and cozy rooms, in the city center between the Blossac parc and the town hall.

We found this small restaurant as we wandered around the delightful city of Poitiers. Having booked for dinner, we were greeted warmly and offered a delicious selection of local foods. The appetiser and amuse bouche created good impressions from the start. But for me it was the escargot dish, served in leaves of very fine pastry, that was the winner.... More

We could and we were pretty impressed with the show they put on. The langoustines arrived beautifully arranged with some dry ice steaming away in the hot... More

Good choice of French and Regional specialities, 4 different menus and a special menu with a "theme". We had 2 different menus and enjoyed the quality of the food and the good... More

Had lunch here midweek on a trip into Poitiers, it is truly authentic, the staff are welcoming and the food is excellent. The lunch time menu is excellent value. The restaurant is a short walk from the main square and the other main restaurants and the outside is a little dated, which may put a few tourists off but go... More
