It looks like a hotel restaurant, however the food and service was the best. We were at thed Mercure for 5 nights and we ate here on 3 occasions. We tried a few other restaurants but none could match the quality of L'Echanson.

Another hotel, another restaurant - wrong. The food here is fabulous, surprising quality with a good range of fare and reasonable prices. Despite the heavy tourist load the service was quick and always friendly.

We took the risk based on previous review reports and had dinner the night we arrived. We did not regret it. The set menu was delicious, and above all (what we feared the most) service was not slow at all!

Somewhat short menu and an even shorter wine list. But every dish is of very high quality. Service is very friendly although somewhat slow.

We had several meals at l' Echanson. The quality is reliable, with traditional plats du jour that were very good. I would give the restaurant a higher rating but for the service which was amazingly slow. One evening, when we were in a rush we ordered a cold plate and waited 30 mn. for it. Since the restaurant was practically... More

Breakfast buffet and dinners are delicious! The buffet is reasonably priced at 15 euros for what you get - and dinner is fantastic - even room service is wonderful!

We were staying at the Mercure Amiens hotel and decided to dine at the hotel restaurant for dinner one evening. They don't open until 7:00, like most restaurants in Amiens, but we were promptly seated when we arrived at 7:00. The restaurant filled up quickly, and there was only one waitress who was taking care of all of the tables... More

We were staying at the ibis styles down the road, but got a 10% voucher to eat at l'Echanson. The menu offered reasonable choice including local specialities (I had Andouillettes), and the food was good quality. However even with the discount it was not particularly cheap (we had a bottle of wine, and water too). A safe bet, but better... More

None of the staff speak a word of English, and even with my basic french we were just not getting anywhere. The hotel wasnt busy so we were surprised that they had run out of the 2 main courses of Salmon and Steak by 8pm.... We ended up having the chicken curry which was about 1/2 a sliced breast drizzled... More
