This French café was perfect for our crowd of nine (5 kids) and we got to have our own little private room for lunch which was just perfect as we didn't have to worry about our kids making too much noise. The food was nice but not outstanding, the service very friendly and the ambiance great. Also prices were reasonable.

We had a terrible meal, we chose coq au vin accompanied by pomme dauphinoise. The chicken was tough and the potato was dry and stale. This food had been cooked many hours (or days) before and served as an inedible tepid mess. Noone asked why two of the plates were returned almost untouched. Do not visit this place. There are...

This place was lovely. The meals were fresh and served with a massive smile from a non English speaking waiter. Not with standing the language barrier, the waiter was patient and tried with us to help through the order. He was assisted by another who spoke English. The menu was limited, but that was our preference as it meant that... More

My wife and I were looking for a restaurant in Amiens that featured local ingredients and was not a tourist trap. We checked out a number of menus and chose Chez Maman. It was just across the canal from the strip of restaurants on Rue Belu. The owner uses fresh produce from the Horillonnages (the canal gardens). Try the local... More

Our dinner was lovely, the staff friendly and attentive. They explained all the dishes to us as we do not speak French. The food tasted so fresh and perfectly prepared. The standout dishes were the Haddock Tartare entree and the Tarte Tartin dessert, but our main courses were fantastic as well. The menu was for the one day only, so... More
