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!)

The staff were helpful and friendly and the food was everything you might expect from a French brasserie.

We were a big group but that did not excuse the clumsy service and confused orders. It seemed the staff were unsure of themselves and I spent the evening dodging falling glasses and noisy staff. Quite unpleasant really. The food was not great

Went there for a light dinner and beer. Well prepared and pleasantly served. Good for snacks as well as full meal. Very convenient too.

Good french cousine. Good service. English speaking waiters. Clear menu. Took average onion soup and above average flank steak - could recommend. If you would like to have some french food: good choice.

I've come here a number of times over the years and although a bit pricey, the food and drink selection is pretty good and you are able to sit outside without being right next to the road, unlike most the cafes and restaurants in Fontainebleau. This experience was both amusing and gross at the same time! We came here with... More

Had dinner and lunch here recently. Loved the authentic French atmosphere. Food was a delight and seemed very freshly cooked.Excellent choice of wines by the glass too. Service very professional. The best croque Monsieur I have ever had? Give it a try.

We were staying in the hotel next door and decided on a typical 'french' breakfast. Our hotel was next door and so we selected it for location as much as anything. Yes the service was slow, we were not in a hurry, so was no big deal for us. We had baguette and coffee which was served with an excellent... More
