The waiting staff here were perfectly pleasant, in a slightly anonymous type way, but the meal was a little disappointing. Both the steak I had and the pasta bake (macaroni) were under seasoned, and the bake itself didn't seem particularly fresh. There just didn't seem much love or honesty to the cooking, and in the end I was quite glad... More

Set in the center of Rouen, the restaurant offers really good dishes, the meat was very tender and properly cooked (the beef wad red inside, but so tender!), even the green beans were cooked the proper way (not too long! Still crisp). I had beef in a wine sauce, very delicate, my friends had an excellent appetizer made with tomatoes... More

Had dinner here, very unhurried with good food for the very reasonable price, excellent service from charming staff. Eating outside on the terrace makes for a very pleasant evening.

We ate here our first night in Rouen and because Sunday was the next night, we happened to choose to eat a light meal here again. Not so fast! Where the first meal on Saturday was really good, the meal on Sunday seemed to be whatever was left over.

Ate here twice during our visit to Rouen, lovely food, good atmosphere. This is an unpretentious place serving simple dishes cooked & presented really well.

Snobbish waiters, poor service and mediocre food. There was nothing welcoming about the restaurant and nothing special about it to recommend it. Skip it.

We visited Gill Cote Bistro on a holiday Monday when most restaurants were closed. While it would not normally have been our first choice, we were pleased with our visit. The restaurant overlooks the popular Place du Marche, with large windows facing south on the square. With typical bistro seating, the interior has a warm feel, with lots of light... More

We had a difficult time finding a decent restaurant open on a Sunday night in Rouen. Thank goodness for Gill Côte Bistro. This is the bistro for the Michelin 2 star restaurant, Gill. We ordered the menu which had several choices. The entree du jour, lentil salad with beef tongue and mustard, was a little too adventurous for my partner,... More

My wife and I read about Gill and Bistro Gill and decided on the latter because we wanted to have lunch and the pricing was much better. It was great. The staff were very good; professional and helpful unlike some of the reviews - how can some people get it so wrong? We opted for the 29 euro menu. The... More

Chose this restaurant on the recommendations of other Trip Advisors users and was not disappointed. I was expecting a stuffy restaurant but was pleasantly surprised. We arrived without booking but there were no problems in getting a table - it helped probably that it was low season. In high season I would recommend to book because the restaurant doesn't have...
