We chose this restaurant when visiting Epernay, because one of the local champagne producers suggested it. And we really liked the place - this was one of our most memorable restaurant experiences while visiting France.
When we first entered the restaurant, we thought it was packed full, but they had more space at the back of the building. Funny thing to us was that the waiter was very apologetic about seating us in the back room all alone with no one else as company - we being Finns found it great having a whole room just for us two! Well, in about half an hour every table in that room was taken, too, so we didn't have to sit there alone for very long.
We chose the 19 euros Sympa menu and a bottle of champagne and found the food good value for the money. The waiter took good care of us - we didn't have to wait too long between courses and there was water and bread on the table the whole time, when the candle burnt down it was changed, etc.
Even though the restaurant was full of people, we did not get a feeling that we should just eat quickly and then give room to the next customers but were allowed to enjoy the menu at our own pace. So although it was a busy evening for the staff, we didn't feel rushed. Would definitely visit this restaurant again!
