My french Bistro heaven downtown Hamburg

This heavenly authentic French bistro offers french food without pompous style. Sunday you should enjoy the Menue specials at just 33 Euro for three courses - hard to find food of this grade elsewhere.

We enjoyed our visit here to celebrate a special occasion. My wife was smitten with the gorgeous waiter with the curly hair. The whole atmosphere helped us enjoy our evening out, the food was delicious and the service good. Recommended.

Lovely french bistro in the heart of Hamburg. Don't expect a fancy restaurant or menu - this is a very down to earth classic french bistro, with wonderful, tasty food. Very good value for money. We felt very welcome and the setting was very cosy. Great service and delicious food!

I called to book a table. They gave us a table in the other room which was located downstairs. It lacked atmosphere and feeling, quite dull in fact. Up stairs compared to downstairs was more vibrant.

Had lunch at Le Plat Du Jour. Nice ambience, French style as the name suggests. Food was absolutely good but starting at 16€ for a lunch is a bit over the top, at least to my thinking. Was pleased with the experience nonetheless.

We enjoyed our dinner like we never had in a French restaurant. The dishes were from very high quality products such as scallops and rump stake taken care of with golden hands.

Have been there several times before, and like the place and the good French food very much. However since last time the prices have gone up, and the level of service has gone down. Reservation is essential!

a bit of France in downtown Hamburg, we were lucky to get a reservation, on a busy Sunday evening. Food was very tasty, staff business-like, it was truly busy when we arrived, we will come back for sure
