Lovely restaurant with good food and service. We were served by a young man who was literally doing everything but the cooking. Even under this pressure his service was with a smile. We very much enjoyed our visit.

A relatively simple place with a pretty standard menu, although with a few regional specialities. Reasonably priced menus available, especially - as is common - for lunch. Nice indoor area (also a space in the cellar which we didn't see) and outside seating also available, even if the location along the street isn't as nice as right on one of... More

After spending a few days at a very wet musical festival (Main Square) we decided to skip the festival food and try our luck in Arras town. We visited a local beer store and the owner recommended this restaurant for lunch. The waiter was very friendly and spoke English. He described all the dishes and after ordering they arrived promptly.... More

We are in Arras en route to London on the night of the Fete de Musique….so all noise and hoopla!!! The restaurant was a haven from all the noise and crowds. Food is adequate and unexciting. But a square and honest meal and an improvement on the burgers and pizza offered elsewhere round the square.

A small group with no reservation, we were sat in the cellar with no fuss by the owner Isabelle. The menu is not extensive but has a good range to suit all and indeed no one in the group had any difficulty making a choice. The service was good and all food is brought down from the floor above which... More

Not an extensive menu and only one poor waiter serving everyone, but we were not kept waiting. full of locals taking advantage of the very fair priced food and drink, considering it was on the square. Only niggle was that there wasn't enough room at the table.

Found this place by chance. We hadn't researched eating places in advance but being hungry we too a chance. Glad we did. The service was good and the food was enjoyable. One or two minor niggles but generally very pleased we visited

We ate here one evening en-route to the Italian Alps, and enjoyed our meal. The restaurant was quiet when we arrived (well it was January), but gradually filled up over the course of the next hour. The menu was interesting - the carbonnade wasn't the best we've ever had, but was still enjoyable. I also enjoyed my steak with a... More

Had a table booked last night for 8.30pm. By the time we got there they were fully booked and we were the only English which is always a good sign. Hubby had the 'offal' type sausage with veg, and I had the fish in sauce, both of which were pretty good. For starters I had snails in garlic sauce and... More

First impressions weren't great insofar as we showed up at 6.45 for a 7.00 booking only to be borderline shooed away and told to come back later. And then when we did I'm not convinced they could find our booking but they didn't seem fazed. We were shown downstairs which is obviously the original medieval basement and the atmosphere and...
