Lovely welcome to the restaurant. Been here several times before and not been disappointed. Very nice home cooked food with good portion size, Chicken in sauce was very nice and popular, seemed that everyone was ordering the chicken, mushrooms and mashed potato with truffle oil. The potato, I could have eaten with nothing else it was so good. Lamb was... More

The food was awful... and I was not expecting something special. We were in a large company and almost all of us failed to finish the dish. Mine was quite edible as long as it was hot, but then... The portions were small, plate service questionable, service - at least strange, as some of us alredy finished when others still... More

We were... More

- You can order different sizes for the main dish. The normal size is small in regard to the advertised weight. - the entrecote is cut too thin, not matured enough, tough. - be aware that the main dish does not include the side dish. Add 50% to the indicated price.

Will visit again! Only fault is... More

Away from the main street in Fontainebleau we found this restaurant. We were looking for something special as it was our last night in Europe and this certainly fitted the bill. The food was delicious, the atmosphere delightful and the staff attentive and helpful. Would definitely recommend.

This small restaurant is charming and serves great food and excellent wines. The waiters are very attentive and - as the name of the restaurant suggests, talented at pairing the wines with your meal. My colleague, who is from Argentina, ordered the plate of charcuterie as a starter and it was plentiful and delicious. 18 euros for chicken, I found... More

Using tripadvisor reviews we enjoyed a very nice meal with some excellent wine and decided to take our daughter who is a vegetarian the following week. We asked if this would be a problem and were told a nice vegetarian meal would be available. She was given salad, mashed potato and quinoa on a cabbage leaf. (All of which were... More
