Good Food, Cold Beer, Great Place to People-Watch

We stopped in for a light lunch and drinks and are glad we did so. The service was prompt and polite. We sat outside, beneath a nice awning. The tables and floor were clean. The menu is very nice. Much to choose from. I had the smoked turkey, avocado, and bacon sandwich. It was delicious and... read more

Just nipped in for a drink and a snack, sat outside and people watched. Our server was very pleasant, our drinks arrived quickly and with a smile. We just ate from the fingerbite section and had their croquettes, which were incredibly tasty. The only down side is that there is only 1 loo, which meant a long wait for the... More

Service was absolutely dire! Sat down on front terrace for around 15 minutes before being acknowledged. Grumpy staff who gave the impression that everything was an effort. Luckily we did not eat there as two gents sat in between diners puffing away on huge cigars seemed to be bothering the ones that were, staff should of stepped in. We counted... More

We stopped off here for lunch and to escape the torrential rain. The service was friendly and very efficient. Our food was simple - a home made potato soup and a Club Sandwich, both of which were good. Based on a simple lunch I'd recommend the Brasserie.

Visited this establishment as it was close to my hotel and although everyone else was dining at the outside tables...it wasn't a problem that I chose to sit indoors to eat my scallops, followed by a steak and then a red berry pane cotta. Great service but must importantly great food as a good price.

We stopped by here for a large, cold, glass of Warsteiner on a sultry June afternoon. Despite the weather we sat at an outside table (of which there are many but soon fill up once vacated) to watch the world go by. The pleasant staff and service as efficient as one can expect for a busy brasserie led to one... More

This restaurant is crap! The service was terrible, the food was mediocre, the staff were grumpy and rude. And they do not accept credit card for amounts less than 50 Euros. What a waste it was t visit this place......

A real little gem which was tastefully decorated for Easter. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was high quality and served very quickly. Presentation was high standard. I would recommend this place if you are in the area and not outrageous prices. An added bonus was lovely napery which made it a cut above.

We stopped for late lunch here as it looked nicer than average for the tourist city and it was close to our hotel. Glad we did. Hubby had one of the asparagus specials (whilst in season) and I had a sandwich from the lunch menu. We shared bitteballs as an appetiser. All was very tasty. I'm surprised at the comments... More
