I love this place, it is my local bistrot and they make a variety of quintessentially French dishes. Their table win is good and the waiters are very nice people who are not part-time do it for a living. The food is quite good, although do not expect Michelin star quality, it is good food that leaves one very satiated... More

We went here after visiting the chateau across the road. I took a plate of charcuterie and my girlfriend had a steak. Both of us were very happy with the food. Very tasty and fresh. Service was also very good.

I went here with my partner this weekend. It was an extremely hot day so we went to grab a quick drink before visiting the chateau across the road. Firstly, we were moved from the table we had originally sat at as it was 'only for people ordering food', despite there being many empty tables. Once seated at a table... More

I stopped by here for dinner as it's near my hotel. The food was pretty good. I had the Steak Hache. The meat was flavorful, and cooked to order. It was the service that stood out. I'm a business traveler. This is an area of Paris where you don't find English speakers as the norm. Which is fine, since this... More

We had lunch after a visit to the chateau opposite. Excellent menu and specials board. I had a delicious Bouef bourguignon, my partner had steak, both were delicious and perfectly sized portions for lunch. The wine of the month, a Graves Bordeaux, was luscious and well priced. The service was very friendly, indeed jovial, and polite. Loved it.

We visited Le Drapeau twice in one week and were very pleased both times. Typical French honest dishes at a correct price. Service was very friendly.

I am aware of at least three occasions where I or a fellow traveller have been returned the incorrect (i.e. insufficient) change when paying at the end. They will tell you these were mistakes, but please do make sure to count your change carefully before leaving.

Directly across the rias from the chateau, the food here is just excellent - and not too expensive! The liver is out of this world and the very thin tarte tatin to die for, so well worth a visit.

Came here for dinner of first night of our honeymoon. Many places close early in Vincennes, so we're lucky to find this place. It's located in a quaint little area of Vincennes directly across from Le chateau de Vincennes. Service was pleasant, waiter knowledgeable, ordered rabbit pâté to start, very good! Ambience of restaurant was charming. Bring coins as the... More
