We enjoyed a very fine meal at La Mere Brazier. The welcome was warm, from the voiturier at the from door to Chef Viannay, who spoke to every diner during the course of the evening. Service was outstanding without being fussy or over the top and, of course, the food was superb - it looked good and tasted better. We... More

We went to La Mere Brazier for lunch in February, 2014. We reserved a month or so ahead, by email, from Australia. We had the lunch menu, which included some superb veal, along with matching wines. We were welcomed and seated in the main downstairs room which was light, warm and very comfortable and most of all, quiet. (No shouting... More

I must say, I was very disappointed from the moment the Maitre'd, sucked in his breath, and looked at his watch, and told me "there was no more degustation menu" my table was booked for 13.30, and I ordered at 13.45! I would have booked earlier, if it meant I couldh've had the degustation menu (It was the main reason... More

There are a few things that make a real difference in a 2 Michelin starred restaurant. For sure not the courtesy of staff (tick), the impeccability of the décor (tick), the number of amuse-bouches, the home made paninis or exotic butters that can already fill you up in a blink of an eye (all ticks). The thing that should really... More

We stumbled across this gem by chance. Greeted by a range of staff who were attentive and able to speak English - then seated in a beautiful, elegant yet retro setting. The Chef himself came out to say hello and the experience began. Prices are inline with a 2 michelin star feed, but the meal we ordered was divine. From... More

Despite only one waiter speaking English the service was very special. The lunch menu at this 2 michelin star restaurant was exceptional, not at all traditional French but a huge twist on classic dishes, The desserts (as you'd expect in France) were very very good and the highlight of the meal. The atmosphere was excellent - this was our first... More

This place could be so much better. We went for the prix fixe lunch and maybe dinner is much better. That would explain the many good reviews. The bread, wine, starter and the amuse-bouche was gorgeous. If the main course and dessert was even average, this would have got 4 or even 5 stars. The service was a little pretentious... More

Firstly, the restaurant have michelin stars so having a meal there is very expensive. However it is worth it because of the quality of the food and service. I would suggest to go there for lunch as they have set menu with is very nice and less expensive than dinner. If you are tight on budget, there is lots of... More
