Very bad experience: Too busy and out of control for the people working there. We did not receive the food at the same time, out of two beef steaks ordered medium rare, one was undercooked and the other cooked completely through -sent the latter out,...and received instead an almost raw piece of meet, mostly inedible. Throughout the whole meal we had to work hard to get any attention, and the water and the check had to be asked for twice. It was a relief to finally get out of the place.More

Last minute reservation for a business dinner and we were warmly welcomed. The service was very good, professional and with big smile. On the food side, no complain at all, all dishes ordered were very tasty, high quality and well prepared. We chose oysters, fish&chips,...rognons and Poire beef with ratatouille and french fries. And with Chardonnay white wine. A good place I recommend !More

The restaurant was located in an area with several other restaurants on a pedestrian street and seemed to cater to tourists. The place was busy the evening we had dinner. We chose to eat on their covered, walled porch which also had a heater, welcomed...on a chilly evening. Their wine list was average, with a fairly good selection by the glass and bottle. We had the chicken which was very tasty and a Caesar salad. Unfortunately the salad had too much dressing. The service was good and it was a nice place to eat.More

Restaurant was busy, always a good sign, the service was friendly and capable.The menu was simple and not over complicated. Onglet steak was tender and perfectly cooked. Generous portions of Moules. Noticed Bass cooked in a salt crust. Would return here.

Dear Trippers This is a good option for early evening with a terrace and good view of a nice square. Classic menu with a nod to the international eaters with le hamburger available. Nice wine list. The food was reasonable. Pleasant staff.

Ate in at least 10 restaurants in Fontainebleau in the last 2 weeks. Since I’m in France, I wanted to try French food. Unfortunately, most of them have very similar menus. Bistro Des Amis is no different. However, I really enjoyed the food here. Had...the fois gras and a salad with grilled prawns and with some ratatouille. Food was simple by very nicely done. Friendly waitstaff and excellent location. Haas a seat by the window which allow me to watch all the people (mostly INSEAD students) walked by. Will come back in the future.More

Pleasant place, view on the small town place, very nice welcome, and delicious food; try the Rognons, the best ever eaten in a restaurant! (Only the ones cocked by my mum are the best). Price very ok, only wine a little pricey, but would love...to go back. Do not hesitate, very good place. And they speak English, and offer English menu.More

We had reserved at Bistro 9 based on reviews, and we arrived to find staff bringing in the exterior plants and preparing to close. No one was there but us. The chef looked out from the kitchen with the unmistakable air of frustration. Nope. We...could not endure it. So we politely excused ourselves after the young waiter explained that they only recently had opened on Sunday nights and the word had not spread. We have no reason to believe it is not a very good restaurant. We just did not wish to dine alone. Two doors down and we were warmly greeted at Bistro des Amis which quickly filled to near capacity. The woman running the floor did an excellent job and we were rewarded with great mussels and hanger steak — and lovely house wine. We could not have been happier. If you are looking for a reasonable and dinner in a friendly spot this is it — especially if it is Sunday night.More

Am always on the look out for steaks and the one I had was perfect. They also offered a demi Camembert frit which was a half portion fried Camembert cheese - amazing! Since I don’t do carbs, I usually ask for my fries to be...replaced with additional salad. The picture showed the fries because it looked so good when my friends had it, I went back again 2 nights later and had it with fries. Yes, the fries were worth the carbs for a keto eater to break keto.More

This is a reliable centrally-located restaurant which we have used on a number of occasions over the years. Decent range in the menu as well as good daily specials and wines of the month. Very warm, friendly welcome - even caring when we arrives for...a birthday celebration and they found a vase for a bunch of flowers we had!More
