not our best choice

We were waiting for our kids to arrive by train so we had a late diner. We asked for food and they were at 20h50 not sure if the kitchen was still open. Appeared to be the case, since 5 minutes later our food arrived. Served in a very unfriendly way and not even warm. So next time we will... read more

I really wanted to give this restaurant a good review as I had a decent meal here two years ago. Unfortunately both the quality of the food and service let it down. We ordered a salad for myself and a waffle for my wife and waited 20 minutes for the salad, but no waffle. We asked the waiter a couple... More

there's nothing much to say... we paid 16 euros for 2, and I said TWO, fried croquettes, of a size of 4 cm each. Thieves! No words for that.

We dropped in for a quick lunch. Two salads...one Greek and the other warmed Brie in crust. Couple of glasses of wine....and all was good! Service was just fine.

Service started well, friendly waiter, beer and wine arrived promptly along with slightly stale bread, and then it all went downhill. Close to an hour after ordering our food we were certain that our orders had gone to a near-by table. Flagging down our "waiter", he asked what we had ordered and said that our meals had been prepared but... More

Not value for money. Ridiculously overpriced and quality of food far below average. 18 EURO for a salad which contained 5 lettuce leaves, miserable bacon cubes and ok chevre cheese. In a nutshell, a solid rip-off.

The coffee was good but I ordered tea! That says all... But it was not as bad because they were hospitable, and they provided us with a table even though the place was full.

Had enough time between flights for a couple of beers and a bite. The service was chilled and impaitent and the food was thrown together with little thought. The beer was cold, which was good but the cost was too high for what you were given.

Lots of beers available on draught, but was served a 75% full glass (mousse was big) had to ask for a top up. Staff are fraught and service a bit hap-hazard. Moules Marinieres were a bit overdone and thrown together, moelleux aux chocolat should have had creme anglais but came with chantilly. I would avoid in future.
