The place was crowded so I thought it must be good. And it was! Excellent La Tijuana thin based pizza.

Had dinner here with a group of 4 older friends. As we were one of the first to occupy a table we were a bit worried. Later though , the place was packed and our fears proved unfounded. On a classic Italian French menu our group had lasagna, Caesar salade, steak hache and pizza. All were quite satisfactory. With a... More

We are regular travellers to the South of France and so are very used to the late opening and eating times in the restaurants - we quickly learned this is not the case in Orleans! Having driven from Calais we went out in search of sustenance at 8.30pm on a Saturday and could not get a table at any of... More

We found this place through tripadvisor and booked it via there website. Just as well as there was a big queue of people but we got shown straight to our table. The food and the service were simply superb. We shared mozzarella sticks to start which were divine and the dips excellent. Pizzas were of the very highest standard and... More

This was the rudest staff in any restaurant I have ever been in. There were a number of tables vacant outside without reservations. I was told I would have to wait for 20 minutes. I said "That's fine, can I have the menu please?" and the waitress said "No, you will have to wait somewhere else." So I just left... More

Based in a very characterful building, very friendly helpful staff, the menu has a lot of choice, however for me, the Pizzas take a lot of beating, plenty of flavour and filling. Good value for money.

It was sunny and we(5 people) sit on the outside. The ambiance around this restaurant was really great. Pedestrians and some tourists were passing us looking through our pizza. All pizza costs 12.5 euro regardless of the sort of pizza. All pasta were about 13.5 euro. Pretty reasonable price. Today's menu and a glass of wine set was 10.5euro. All... More

We stopped off in Orleans on our way back from holiday further south and as the Italian restaurant we'd hoped to revisit was closed for holidays we decided to go to La Cantine instead. It's definitely very popular and although we had to wait (in the bar opposite) for 30 minutes for a table, it was constantly surrounded by lots... More

Randomly chose this place. There were five of us, so we had to wait a little while for a table, but he obviously owns or has a deal with the bar opposite as we simply went and had a drink and he came and got us. They were very busy, and initially understaffed so was slow to begin with, but... More
