“Not a good experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2011

I went for dinner with my wife, daughter and our 2 grandsons on the recommendation of Ibis Hotel where we stayed the night. We had booked at Le Swan, a few doors away, but the Ibis (Veronique) said that we should go to this restaurant instead. We also noticed that the Ibis was sending other guests to this restaurant.

We found it horrible! It has zero ambiance. The toilets are horrid - no hand soap and we had to ask for toilet paper.

The fish soup was the worst I've ever tasted, followed by a fatty, disgusting beef stew!

My daugher had the cod dish which she found alright but very salty.

The frites were very greasy.

Our grandkids said that the chicken nuggets were slimey and the salad had a nasty sauce.

I would avoid it!

“A real French experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2011

We booked this lovely restaurant in advance as we were a party of 9 adults and 4 children under the age of 4 years, travelling to Chateau de la Vallee, Grandcourt, Seine Maritime. We wanted a true French experience and would certainly recommend this restaurant for it's welcome, excellent service, and delicious good value food. We appreciated the good reviews and were certainly not disappointed.

“Worth every penny”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2010

Situated in the old town this restaurant offers good food at reasonable prices. The menu is not huge (a good sign as this normally means that the food is freshly prepared on the premises) but the quality is excellent. Appears to be family run with friendly, helpful staff. Recommended.
