I tend to have one meal at this restaurant every time that I am in Nancy for work purposes. Quality and quantity of food is very high. Prices are reasonable for a restaurant of this category. Service is high quality and friendly

Had lunch here for a work meeting and really enjoyed the plat du jour (cod with rice). It was a good serving, very hearty and We dined inside and had an opportunity to soak up the authentic atmosphere. Our server was attentive and walked through all of the specials for us. I revisited the cafe later in my visit for... More

Not the place to be for very refined food, but atmosphere is good; many young waiters give the place a laid-back feeling; It seems to be on the edge of taking that next step towards a more trendy lounge approach; Salads and wine is the safest bet here.

When we visited this one as recommended by Rachel at the Hotel des Prelats we had a wonderful meal and prime seats for the wonderful light show. The food was inspirational and serve with enthusiasm.

I was invited here by my colleagues. Not only the view was excellent and we could enjoy the show but also we had a nice meal. My favourite was the entrée: the hareng tartare is really tasty. Then, I had the beef which was soft. My dessert was the vacherin which was decent but not something to die for. I... More

This restaurant is located with several others on the Place Stanislaus, the central square of the city. Like most of the others, it has a large outdoor dining area with umbrellas and a lot of cigarette smokers, so we opted to sit inside. A sudden rain shower soon sent the outside diners inside and where we started out one of... More

Had dinner here during our one night visit to Nancy. Was packed and missed out on a seat outside but got one near the window. I ordered a steak and too be honest was more like a hamburger. Was ok tasting but a bit of a let down. My partner had an Italian salad which also was only average. The... More

Stopped in Nancy for one night on our way home from Italy. Headed to the very pretty Place Stanislas and found this gem of a restaurant. Although the food was not outstanding, it was great quality for the price. The highlight for us was the very friendly and welcoming staff. Great to see waiting staff going about their job with...
