Fantastic find

Great restaurant just off the main squares. Very warm welcome and good service. We had great steak and duck breast. Wine was good and all very reasonable. We will be back on our next trip to Arras.

What a discovery! Fantastic service (in English if you need it but if you can speak the lingo, they are happy to oblige - unlike a lot of 'helpful' restaurant staff I've encountered). Great local beer on tap, super food, really good wine list and all at a reasonable price. Surprised that this wasn't the number 1 restaurant in Arras.

We booked for a Saturday night (and we were glad we did as the restaurant was very busy later in the evening). The restaurant catered for all ages and when we arrived, there were a couple of French families with very well behaved young children enjoying a family meal. The menu is not large, but every dish we had was... More

Located in the charming town of Arras every diner in this terrific restaurant was treated as an old friend. At the end of our meal we lingered and chatted for nearly an hour with the husband and wife owners and chef and were made to feel as if we were their most important customers. Three superbly crafted and presented courses... More

Recommended by our b&b, nice warm welcome, friendly service and delicious food. Not a large menu but that is often a good sign.

We were very impressed by the service we got. Anything we didn't understand on the menu was explained in English and we were able to make informed choices. The menu is not extensive as the restaurant aims to change the menu according to the best foods available. It also aims to have different takes on regional specialities. Accordingly we were... More

We chose to visit this restaurant following TA reviews and were not disappointed. If you are wanting a quick meal - then don't come here - it's an evening out and delivers on service, food and price. From the start it was clear that the owners took great pride in their establishment and cared for what they were offering their... More

We visited this bistrot on Wed, 29th April and were delighted by the warm welcome we received, the very good plat du jour which was accompanied by the best frites we had had in many years of eating in France and the fantastic value for money. Had we been staying in Arras, we would have gone again. The picture of... More

Based on TA reviews we ate here on a warm April evening and after a beer in the sunshine in the Place Des Heros. We weren't disappointed. Limited but well cooked menu. Simple, adequate wine list. Pleasant, attentive service. Chef came out to see all was well. Ideal restaurant for our first night in Arras.

On a three night stay in Arras we discovered this absolute gem of a restaurant by chance. To be honest from outside it looks a little 'plain', but once inside you realise that it is anything but. Four of us eat here. Normally we make a point of trying different places to eat on short breaks. This time it was... More
