We decided to try this restaurant based on other reviews and had an excellent dining experience. We had the gastronique menu - my mate had two plats and I had one. From the amuse bouche with fish eggs embellished with a tasty mousse, a wonderful squid salad, one of the best fois gras we've ever tasted to the excellent seafood... More

This was, without exaggeration, one of the best meals we've ever had. Croc Loup is an intimate little restaurant (8-10) tables, where the owner is the chef. One extremely professional and courteous young waitress served all diners with class. The five-course menu gastronomique at 29 euro was wonderful, and we'll still be talking about the duck and beef dishes we... More

We stumbled upon this little place and were lucky enough to get a last minute table. Great value for money, a wonderful menu of tasty, well-cooked food and friendly service. Two courses plus cheese and dessert for €29 was a great deal and was full of classic French cooking. The raspberry meringue glacé ice cream bomb covered in whip cream... More

I am so glad we used trip advisor to find this GEM - it is a very small restaurant filled with French foodies, and so you know it must be good. The portions were a great size, well priced, and sooooo incredibly delicious - the duck with berries was phenomenal! There is only 1 waitress so take your time and... More

One of the best French international food restaurant. Excellent service! We came with children. There is no menu for children, but they arrange and prepare them a tasty dish for children!

The last time I went to this restaurant was in ... 1988 ! It has changed a bit since then. The food was generally very good - nice amuse bouche, delicious croustillant de Saint-Jacques (even though it was not croustillant!), a very nice pavé de boeuf with a cep sauce, and a very good desert. This restaurant is also very... More

The room was simple but the food was anything but. By 8:30pm all 29 seats (we counted) were filled, and the plates came at the right pace and were extremely delicious, fresh, and perfect. The 5 course meal was reasonably priced and filled out the evening nicely. The servers were courteous and patient with our questions about the dishes, and... More

Our meal was outstanding! I picked the place based on some TripAdvisor reviews and they were right! The service was terrific-a very enthusiastic and helpful young lady explained the menu in English. Our meals were creative and excellently prepared. There were 10 of us and we all loved everything! It is also reasonable. With a 3 course prix fixe and... More
