“Quiet little restaurant serving some of the best french food I've ever had the pleasure to taste!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

Stumbled across this little restaurant in Valenciennes whilst staying there for a couple of days on business.
I found it the first night and it was so good I returned the following night.
I tried different dishes each time from the Gourmand Menu and everything was fantastic - from salad dressings through to main course seasoning this restaurant hit the spot.

My advice - if you're in the area go for it, you'll have no regrets.

“Nice restaurant, a bit dated interior and classic menu.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2011

Have visited this restaurant in a lightly modified family house a few times. Servcie was okay but not very good. Food was nice with many preparations on each plate. Price is quite high for the service and quality received.
