The price of the menu is largely overpriced in comparison with the quality of the food. We tried the fromage a trois and the chateaubriand. I have to confess I have had it way better in less regarded restaurants. It was just disappointing.

Have been to Resto Gare / La Vielle Gare a dozen times over the years. La Vielle Gare was a very classy truly French restaurant. The handful of times we’ve been to Resto Gare hoping it would measure up we’re just OK.
