During our visit, we ate twice at Hippeau and enjoyed it thoroughly. The staff were very helpful and assisting us in English. The food was delicious, especially the cooked foie gras. A good selection of local wines. I would advise to book as it is...More

The place looks more contemporary, but comfortable, a little noisy but like a party. It's located in the heart of the city, just off the walking street and by the church. Our servers were terrific helping with our mediocre french. The food was simple but...More

In september we had a lovely meal in the Brasserie Hippeau. We had the foie gras, the profiteroles d'escargot and a tartare de boeuf. Nice serving people and good Loire-wine. We had a very nice evening.

Good range of wines and cocktails with relatively prompt service from wait staff. Sadly, the staff looked pretty miserable on the occasions we went or strolled by.

This place should be avoided. It is better to go hungry than eat there. I ordered a fish fillet appetizer that was full of bones; I told the waiter, he just shrugged. The entree duck was mostly raw! The waiter said they would cook it...More

Surely no review can be completely negative so I will begin by saying that this was one of the only places open on Sunday/Morning and it had a big terrace area and one friendly blonde waitress. But.... to summarise the experience as a whole.... from...More
