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...

I ate here on a cold winters night after visiting the Christmas Market. The restaurant is bright and welcoming with a busy buzz about the place. The proprietor was friendly and the service was excellent. I had Tilapia in a lovely sauce and it was superb. It was accompanied by rice and vegetables and I was extremely surprised to find... More

We were staying in La Grande Place and after visiting the Christmas Market (very good), looked for somewhere nearby on a wet & windy night. We were attracted by the bright decor. The service was friendly and at all times helpful. There was not much on the menu to appeal to us, nor did the fare for the day on... More

We were in Arras for 2 nights. We ate here the first night but made the mistake of eating somewhere else the second night. We enjoyed our meal so much, we talked about going back the following evening. We did not and we regret it. We were attended quickly and graciously. The server was very patient with our limited French... More

IMHO, there is not a lot of 'good' restaurants in Arras. However, we can thoroughly recommend Le Rat Porteur. Don't let the name put you off, seldom have we have such a nice meal & such superb service. The waiter on the night of the 25.09.2013 was one of the must hard working and attentive we have experience. Management, please... More

My friends and I had a lovely meal at this restaurant in Arras. The service was very friendly and helpful and the food was great. I particularly liked the dessert of Creme Brule. It was creamy and totally yummy. The prices were reasonable and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone going to Arras

My wife and daughter went to the restaurant. Overall, the restaurant the typical of the Arras area - good selection of food with average service. I had the boeuf bourguignon. It was very fatty and I left half the meal untouched. The french fries were typical. My wife had shepherds pie that was mostly potato. The prices were very reasonable... More
