The food is excellent, fine and tasty. I had a Tartare with French fries that were awesome. Nevertheless, the service is out to date. There are six server and none of them is competent enough to take our order... They ignore people and don't do what we ask for. I would recommend this restaurant only if they improve the service...

The Le Grande Cafe, facing the chateau is perfect for a stop before or after visiting the chateau. Weather permitting, one can sit in the sunshine on the terrace, the chateau as backcloth.

Lamb cutlets are great, but if you don't like fat, avoid them. Also the steak tartare looked wonderful.

We were a large group of both locals and overseas visitors. Came here because it's one of the few restaurants in fountainbleu that can accommodate a sizeable group reservation. Service was abrupt by all staff, except a French girl who was more friendly. Staff seemed in such hurry all the time and never smile I feel they think guests gets... More

Tried the platter - charcuterie y fromages. Fantastic and great size for 2 (probably better for 3)! Wish there was a non-smoking section outside as the amount of chai smokers is disgusting so we sat inside (but hey that's France for you!)
