Cheese lovers delight !

We managed to just walk-in and get a table on a Saturday evening. IF you like cheese and fondue then this is a place to try. Basic decor (you don't want table-cloths with all that melted cheese about) but clean and comfy and the food was exactly what we wanted and ordered. Good, honest food and... read more

The fact that the waitress hardly spoke and was chewing gum all night says it all. Average over priced food. A waste of money. Go next door for a pizza, much better quality.

We went to this restaurant particularly for the raclette. Raclette is a bit like a fondu but with two levels. In the bottom level you melt your cheese in your own personal tray, while on the top you cook your meats and vegetables. Everything is made to order and you don't have to worry about food falling into the cheese.... More

Well if you like raclette you will be in for a treat. We ate here on a busy Friday. Service was excellent and the food even better. Very reasonably priced. Three course meal with an aperitif and a bottle of wine for about €60. Savoie style food that I've not enjoyed since skiing in Tignes. Definitely recommend.

Small bustling restaurant featuring Savoyard food, wine & beer located right on the Grand Place. Fairly authentic food, reasonable prices, busy even in mid-week

Four meals, one average, a carbonnade. Three very poor, all salads. Plated quite theatrically, there is certainly a lot of it. But, every item was of the poorest quality. That runs from the salad leaves to the cheese, prawns and meats. The beer was good though.

We ate here as a group of friends on a busy Friday night. We were warmly welcomed and quickly shown to a table. The menu was a little confusing and the waitress was not a native French speaker but with the help of the people next to us we worked out that all the portions are big, and having the... More

Located on the Grande Place and right next to the Hotel les 3 Luppars, this was the perfect dinner location after a long day of travel from London. My wife and I sat outside and chose the braserade in which a charcoal brazier is put on the table and you cook your own chicken and beef -- no one to... More

Situated in the Grand Place with good view, we particularly liked the varied children's menu. The friendly staff happy to recommend choices for our vegetarian daughter too.

Love this restaurant & is one of the definate visits when in Arras. For any lover of cheese, its a must! Fondues, raclette amongst other things, great puddings. Very busy & booking essential. Staff friendly.
