Good food, but great service

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... read 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

Great desserts, affordable and well-prepared entrees and plats-principal, service was friendly and accommodating. Ordered a few things modified; waiter never skipped a beat. Would recommend as a low-midrange budget excellent restaurant.

Is this the best French restaurant I have eaten in? No. What you get is good food and service at a reasonable price (for the area)' On a recent visit my wife my son (a chef) and I are here twice. The chef declared the food "very good", all I can say is that I agreed with him. I loved... More

Ate here with my husband on a particularly busy Sunday lunch time. There was a vintage car event at the Château and a breast cancer event which had hundred of participants finishing just outside the Château walls so the restaurant was extremely busy. However, the service was very good and both of us agreed that our meals were excellent. I... More
