We had a business dinner at this restaurant. Small and cozy it is quite hidden but worth going there to enjoy a very good quality French meal. Not cheap but you don't feel overpaying.

Wonderfully quaint little restaurant in Fontainebleau. Food was excellent and prices were extremely reasonable. Wife had scallops and I had pork loin in a pastry shell. Great lunch destination in a beautiful area.

My friend advised me this place because she lives in Fontainebleau and she has lunch there occasionally. The choice is of dishes is variable. We tool 3 meals to share. The wine was very good. Foie gras, lamb, snails, everythig was yummy. Worth coming back!!!

After eating across the street (at the Italian Primo Baccio, also recommended!) the night before, we wanted something French instead. A small table just inside the restaurant, good wine selection and very tasty food. My colleague enjoyed the egg foi gras while I had the scrumptious scallops. Highly recommended!

Baked eggs with foie gras, snails with cream, grilled whole fish... unpretentious, wholesomely yummy. Much better than the other higher rating place!

We had a simple and yet excellent dinner here. The food was fresh, prepared perfectly. Each bite was a treat. Our server was sweet and very accomodating, speaking French slowly for me (although she spoke perfect English) so that I could practice my French. We had a most delightful evening! I highly recommend it.

This evening we enjoyed a lovely meal @ 'Le Petite Ardoise'. It was our final day in Fontainebleau, and this was the best meal by far. The food and service were excellent. The staff were friendly, helpful, efficient and spoke excellent English - which gave a lovely atmosphere and experience. The menu gave a good variety of traditional French food,... More
