Looks like a family business. Been there without reservation on a crowded day and still we were welcomed. Nice ambiance, VERY beautiful decor, clean place. THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING ABOUT THIS RESTAURANT IS THE PERFECT-PERFECT- PERFECT FOOD DISPLAY (Fantastribuleux) Service and Taste were good and finally price was fair

It might look old fashioned inside, and the decor suffered from bit too much dark wood (if you know what I mean) but La Lycorne is a real gem. We knew that we would need a reservation, so we booked early and the staff were very good and saved us the very table we had requested. We settled down with... More

Such a welcoming restaurant - we dined here twice as a large group of 26 and they accomodated us no problem. It's a family run establishment and that spills over into the service, it's so warm. The courtyard is lovely and the food is awesome, try the foie gras tart tatin if it's on the menu, it was incredible

Great restaurant - loved the inside decor at the back and the service was brilliant - we were in a big group and they seemed unfazed and totally on the ball. The chocolate mousse was just the best!

S'ouvre à 7 h, charmant petit restaurant sur une rue latérale. Vous pourriez manquer en un clin d'oeil. Toutefois...excellente expérience culinaire. Three young men were waiting tables. It was amazing to watch the inter action with non French speaking people and especially with young children. These guys were great!!! Made the food taste even better and you can get Scotch!!

Restaurant was packed, but they managed to fit us in. We thought we might have a long wait to be served, but they were incredibly efficient. Food was good - we shared a large brochette of grilled seafood that was perfectly cooked and came with delicious accompaniments. It was noisy and lively but not overwhelming. Price was very reasonable for... More

We arrived without a reservation, friendly staff soon found us a table for 5 even though the place was pretty full. Drink orders were taken quickly and arrived soon after. Food was good and arrived promptly. Mussels were nice. Friendly, helpful staff. Caters for tourists and food is targeted accordingly.

We visited this restaurant with our three year old son during our holiday. The decor is nice, colourful and welcoming and on first impressions, we had good vibes. Unfortunately, it went quite downhill from then on. I ordered the steak (entrecôte) which I requested to be cooked medium. When the food arrived, the meat was very sinewey and extremely red... More

We had a lovely meal at the Unicorn. I enjoyed a delicious starter of stuffed escargots followed by moules au curry. The restaurant staff are very friendly and the building itself is quaint and fascinating. My only complaint was that the place got exceptionally busy and the staff did briefly forget our dessert order, but this was soon put right.... More
