“Modern take on a Restaurant/Brasserie which seems to aim for families.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

This is a fairly new restaurant and is designed around a theme of a traditional Brasserie. Very large and bright it looks attractive. Once seated however the association with the traditiional type of restaurant ends. Napkins are paper and not very large. Menus are plastiscied and have pictures of the food to assist you. Virtually everything has "Frites" available as an accompianment. Despite its newness and exciting look the furniture is very utilitarian and basic. Many tables were large enough to take extended family groups.
Food was good but not gourmet. We started with Ficelle parcels, a sort of savoury stuffed pancake. They were very good. This was followed by Pork Knuckle with frites. Again very simple but delicious and a good size portion. Dessert were various Gaufre with chocolate sauce and Profiteroles, (too large). Overall our bill was just over 100 Euros and this included a carafe and a half of wine.
To sum up certainly different surroundings but I felt overall the experience did not live up to the expectations you felt on arrival. A good venue to take the family including children for Sunday lunch. There are many existing traditional restaurants in the area which I would prefer to return to but there again I am English and it may be that the local French family see this as an attractive alternative style of dining.
