An excellent local restaurant

My wife, younger daughter (aged 14) and myself visited the restaurant whilst staying in Arras over the October half-term. We were staying in Grand'Place and wanted a good restaurant within easy reach. We had read reviews of Le Rat Porter, and it fully lived up to expectations. In fact we enjoyed... read more

In the centre of town with a good selection on the menu, even had shepherds pie ! Never seen it on French menu before. The food was well cooked and well presented

30 & 31 Oct 2015. 1st evening in the cellar. 2nd lunch upstairs. Both excellent. The slow cooked beef falls apart and very generous helping. Wonderful dressing on the mixed salad.

Just returned from an evening at the Petit Rat. Perfect evening despite the restaurant being very busy, the food was excellent the service attentive without being overbearing and the atmosphere warm and friendly. If you're in Arras and want a relaxed evening I don't think you'll find better.

What a charming and cozy restaurant on La Grand Place, hidden away under a protective roof. It was as much fun watching the pleasant server adeptly handle a full house as it was choosing and enjoying a terrific meal. The meal featured a light cheese sauce on most things, appropriate for a restaurant named Le Petit Rat Porteur, but it... More

My wife, her dad and myself decided to try this restaurant in Arras while on a trip here. We were not disappointed. Unfortunately, we arrived at 6:15 and like all restaurants here, they don't serve dinner until 7:00. They sat us in the upstairs portion anyway and allowed us to sit and drink until 7:00. I ordered the main de... More

We circled Le Grand Place at the heart of stunning Arras - a hidden jewel just an hour from Calais and an excellent stop-over location. We read the menus and opted for Le Petit Rat Porteur and were not disappointed. The poele d'escargot was excellent. and the step excellent. The win and the Leffe beer were served with charm and...

A group of five of us went for our evening meal. The service was fast and pleasant and the food was beautiful. A great environment and it was busy despite being a Tuesday evening. Very reasonable price, good choice of food. Highly recommended!

Had a lovely meal here with friends. We managed to have the last table (on a Tuesday night!) but several groups were turned away. They had sold out of their award winning 'sausages' but we all enjoyed our meal. Great service too.
