Great food, good service. This cafe offers proper French food at sensible prices. The menu is short but the quality is very high. I had dish of the day (lamb) and cheesecake. Both were simple but excellent. Wine is good. Enjoy!!

Nice location, but unfortunately that's all. Wasn't so busy. We took a sit, but unfortunately the table wasn't clean. We asked service to clean it. The guy said; 2 minutes.

We arrived very late in Fontainebleau. Le Grande was open so we just went in. We really loved it. Service was exceptionally friendly and good (not always the case in France) and food was delicious but nothing fancy. We really enjoyed it and will surely come back.

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...

I did not have a meal here, but I can confirm that some really fantastic plates of food were being served. The hamburgers looked big enough for... More

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