The True French Restaurant

The beauty of France is that it is slow to adopt new ways. This restaurant is an example of a timeless, family owned business that seems to exist for the pure joy of doing things with artistry rather than a purely business venture.

We turned up Friday early evening at a hotel close by and immediately attempted to book a table as I was not expecting to be able to get in but I guess it’s the bonus of travelling out of season and we were successful. When we arrived, with our dog, the waiter was very friendly and offered us a choice... More

This excellent little gem is only open a few nights each week, so plan ahead and make a reservation (a must). The owner's are very active in the preparation and serving of every meal. The four of us sharing tasted a pretty wide swath of the menu. Nothing disappointed. Even the wine recommendations were spot on.

We always make sure we have an evening at Fosse whenever we are in Richelieu. Great food, great hosts - it's a very special place to have a lovely evening.

Very atmospheric and very popular. Wonderful food. Excellent wine list and the house wine is very good. Service is slow so allow lots of time.

I had read rave reviews about this place and was looking forward to eating there. I was disappointed. The dining room itself is quite charming in an old fashioned, cluttered way, but the food and service were not at all impressive. The waiting staff are pretty and friendly but not professional. The cooking was nothing special at all and I... More

I was lucky enough to be invited to a private dinner at Fosse St Ange during my visit to Richelieu. The meal was beyond fantastic! Everything was so fresh and flavorful. The crab and avocado with grapefruit appetizer was one of the best things I ever ate. The mushroom ravioli were so favorful and the lemon sorbet with limoncello was... More

The Fosse St Ange is a fantastic restaurant, full of character with brilliant hosts and fabulous food which is beautifully presented. It's our regular eatery whenever we are in Richelieu.
