Tried to get a table for lunch after visiting the chateaux. They just couldn't be bothered and were abrasive and downright rude. We waited and waited then walked out in disgust after being spoken to in the foulest of ways. Maybe they don't like the English or want us in their restaurant.

Really good place. Came here bcuz of tripadvisor's comments and it was all worth it. Wanted something quick before visiting the chateau and found quality food and great service. Just in front of the castle we went for just a dish each bcuz we didnt want to lose too much time. Took noix de saint jacques, supreme and the plat... More

We had lunch here after a long trip getting to Fontainebleau. (Our fault, wrong train and the further delays) finally after getting off the bus this was our first stop. It was 1pm and time for refreshments. There were four of us and we .decided to have lunch before exploring the Chataeu. One of our party had the entree of... More

When visiting Fontainebleau this will be a nice place for a lunch after a visit to Chateau. Good menu with quality food, nice selection of starters, main dishes and deserts. We liked a lot! Thank you!

Perfect for a casual dinner or lunch. The service is friendly, the food is carefully prepared and sensibly priced. Ideal location near the Chateau.

Great location: in front of Chateau. Place was empty on Saturday eve...might be warning. Service was very poor - no offerings, no idea whole time what is happenig - must go with every request on bar. Food: very good starter - salad with foi grais. Main course: chicken was below average. Interesting that they forgot to bring one portion (...service)... More

Sadly this is just another one of those restaurants opposite an attraction. The food is average, how anybody thinks blue cheese goes with steak Is beyond me. The menu said beef in a cheese sauce. We were only given a set menu ( €28 ) and I asked for a local bottle of wine and got some expensive vinegar. In... More

The place seems to benefit from the location (you can see the Chateau if you sit on the right spot). Otherwise the location is bad (at a huge roundabout / street), a bit aside the city center. The food is average not bad but I can hardly remember what I had - usually a bad sign. I would go anywhere... More

After a full morning exploring Fontainbleau, our hungry tour group descended upon this restaurant ready for anything. The staff was ready for our large party and we ordered off of a predetermined menu. Our meals were very good. What stood out for us was the quality of the ingredients and, in particular, our Caesar salads were excellent.

We had booked a table for 8 people following a visit of the chateau. The first task once seated was to choose from the complex selection of menus. The main menu offered foie gras on salad - I thought the foie gras was bland personally. The main dish of hake in urchin sauce was really delicious. Desserts were a bit... More
