VERY SMALL BUT PERFECTLY FORMED !

If only this was double the size it would be a great eaterie. That being said the the food and service are superb and a real bargain. Good wine selection and the menu changes very frequently and is limited so no industrial food offered here! You absolutely have to book for one of the two seatings... read more

I've been here on a few occasions and each time the experience has been great. The food is simple French fare. They have a seasonal menu with good quality, fresh and delicious food, without the high price tag you would normally expect from such a place. The whole restaurant is served by one man and he's always smiling and helpful.... More

This is a lovely little place in St Germain En Laye. Fabulous food and great service. We have been here before and it was great to go back and the standard was as good as before :)

If you're looking for a nice outdoor summer dining spot in Saint Germain en Laye, this is your place. With a revisited-classic French menu, that was pretty good. But if you're looking for friendly service, this is not the restaurant for you. There is only one person, to take orders and serve and unfortunately he is rude, and went so... More

Food was good but every course was served far too quickly - we felt we had been rushed through our meal, otherwise we enjoyed our meal. Huge portions. One man doing everything - taking orders, serving, settling bills etc!

Sit outside if you can in this hive of social activity comprising La Fringale, La Moulerie Larcher, Cafe St Pierre, Ghandi St Germain and The Bitter End. We did the lot over an 8 day period! Twice I had fillet de boeuf, cooked a point at La Fringale. Twice it was delicious. We had the two-course option for 18 euros.... More

Two of us came here for a business lunch. The food was excellent, there was a good choice, the service was quick without us feeling "hurried". We both chose a roasted goat's cheese as the starter. The associated salad was crisp with a dressing which was tasty without being dominant. I chose salmon as the main course. It was well... More

I found this place through word of mouth (followed up with a look on the internet). Went ther for lunch. IHad a very nice salmon, lightly sauteed and seasoned with dill, served over potoatoes. The creme brulee was creamy and light - with a nice hint of bitter orange. My friend got the same meal and she also enjoyed it.... More
