“Belle terrasse, mais dommage...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

Belle terrasse , mais très mauvais service.
Nice place, but very bad service. Not recommended. Just have a drink there (if they see you sitting on the terrace)

“Friendly restaurant away from the bustle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

The Terrasse des Archives is a nice place to come to avoid the noise and bustle of the neighbourhood’s more central bars and restaurants. It (obviously) has a big outdoor seating area, but in winter they also have an enclosed patio section too.

The food is not particularly “special”, but it is nice, not very expensive and the menu generally seems to have something to suit everyone. They have a vegetarian main course (vegetarian lasagna), but they are also happy to adapt other items on the menu to make them vegetarian (preparing the salad without the ham, for example).

Recently the service has been quite poor – extremely long waits for simple requests, impossible to make eye contact with passing staff, etc. The staff are friendly enough, it’s just that the place seems understaffed.

I will continue to come here regularly and would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a simple, reasonably-priced dinner in a friendly local restaurant.
