I was surprised to find this place at first but of course we're sort of in border country aren't we? It was a random spot on a random stop on a long drive from the south to Belgium. I don't know if it's a chain but it had that 'themed' feel to it with lots of wood that was made... More

Food was good, but it took a while to get it served. A big group (+30 people) came in after we placed our order, fed, and out before we received our meals. Gave up trying to get someone to take our dessert order. Restaurant was clean and servers were friendly.

Seafood collection is great! Mussels were really excellent with creamy souse! Fondant chocolat was good, staff especially one kind smily men(do not remember his name) really made a pleasant impression, offered dessert, was kind and attentive! Restaurant has to appreciate such people!

Despite making a resevation 5 months in advance, confiming a week prior and stopping by a day in advance to triple check, they screwed up our reservation for 23 people! Part of our group arrived 10 min. early and told them the rest would be a few minutes late and when we arrived at 13:35 for our 13:30 reservation they... More

Big, busy and well-organised restaurant right in the middle of Metz. Good stop, only a few minutes from the Autoroute and easy parking at Parking Republique. Good food, professional service.

You get what you see. Average kitchen, but friendly waiter. Nothing fancy, but good for a quick bite. Pricy. Interior is nice.

As you enter the restaurant, your first impression is "This is Germany!" And this impression lasts. Maybe it's the way of cooking, maybe it's the way the dishes are served, but the general impression is: German. Interesting, and rather unexpected. The quality is OK, though, and there is nothing wrong with the wine.

After visiting the restaurant close to 20 times over the year we are unfortunately a bit disappointed after our last visit. The menu has moved from seafood and brasserie style towards Alsacian food. The oysters still get five out of five however. Earlier you could order a semi bottle of a nice white Graves or Burgundy compared to today's very... More

Friendly staff, challenging (if you are not local) menu, good,choice of beers. Proficiency, quality and enthusiasm - if could only all chains be like this, travel would be easy and, probably, boring!

This chain have a number of outlets around France. This particular location is opposite the department store Galeries Lafayette in the centre of Metz. Over the years we have eaten here a number of times. This is not fine dining but you get good food served well with rarely any surprises. I ate lunch here with my wife and daughter... More
