I cannot talk about other specialies in the menu, as we only asked for the "braserade". Good meat, variety of sauces, salad and a bowl of frites, at a convenient price. I liked the decoration and the atmosphere of the restaurant. Spacious room, confortable chairs...More

Le Bistrot is a lovely restaurant serving proper French food, such as Fondue. The service was very good and the Savoy Gamey red wine is delightful. The prices are extremely reasonable.

Unlike other reviewers I can highly recommend this bistro, we thought it was really good value; a three course set menu at lunch time for 15 euros, large portions, good food, though no choice. On the day we called in the starter was a puff...More

I ate here twice as part of a group trip with colleagues. The first night, we were served "braserade" with salad and fries. The dish is basically grilled beef that you grill yourself on a mini charcoal grill brought over by the restaurant and placed...More

It is expensive and the food is not good, in addition service is basic if not poor. I feel I have been ripped off! Only plus would be a pleasant decoration, but this is only to attract you in. I definately won't go back there...More

The Dahu is always a family favorite. We've been going there for years. Ownership has changed of course and it's no longer family run. It's still very good although prices have risen fairly dramatically over the past few years. Still the best place to come...More
