Fantastic place for fish and dining al fresco!

They bring the fresh fish to your table and you can see their skills at preparing it, in front of you. Reservations are strongly recommended. Lots of locals.

A dissapointing experience. My husbands large portion of mussels were too salty. I ordered two different starters, which turned up with the exact same garniture (mousse, blinis and one more thing). The waiter should have advised me better. When asked why I had only eaten one-fifth of the secont entré, I explained the situation. The waiter didn't excuse the poor... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and they did us a service. The French aren't necessarily known for welcoming the English but they made us feel like a favourite guest from the moment we walked in. All the waiting staff were a delight.

This restaurant has the best fish dishes in town. But the meat dishes are also something worth mentioning. And don't forget to order the mashed potatoes with truffle oil! The staff is friendly, helpful and attentive, and the atmosphere is very cozy and warm. Definitely worth dining at while in Barbizon.

Fresh fish and great service with a country atmosphere....a favorite dining spot for the French movie crowd in Barbizon.

In my many visits to France, I have never experienced the rudeness that the French are reputed to have - until my recent visit to Le Relais. If I understand correctly, the Restaurant is run by a husband and wife team, with the husband as the Chef and the wife running the front of the house. Well the food coming... More
