Good food, lots of kids

As you would expect with the area, the place is rammed full of kids so don't go here if you are looking for a peaceful meal. Vast selection of steaks and burgers to choose from, cooked to your preference. Good, reasonably priced wine. Menus available in English.

Decent steaks, although a little pricey the fixed menus work out more cost effective. Good, friendly waiters and waitresses.

Bit pricey but worth it for a meal that everyone will enjoy after a day at Disneyland. Think of it as a french equivilant of a Harvester. Standard French dishes done pretty well for a chain.

Good quality steak served with tasty fries! I tried the Cote de Boeuf in the set menu with a lovely goats cheese started, and merangue and custard desert. Reasonable price, friendly service and top quality meat!!!

We used to come here every 2 months or so and we always had a very good experience - service, presentation, choice were great. The meat was prime cuts and full of taste. Towards the end of 2012 they must have changed suppliers as the quality of the meat dropped sharply We were away during 18 months and when we... More

The Location is inside the food court of Marne La Vallee, so easy to get to. The Food is good, plenty of choice and fairly good service, not that quick but OK. You can share the desserts. Value for Money is a little on the high side but acceptable.

We waited for a long time in the queue until we have been seated by the manager although the restaurant was almost empty. The managers (Isabel & Kevin) are impolite, unfriendly, and uncooperative. They seated many people after us before us! Racist managers; they don't speak English; they don't want tourists especially Asian!
