Was very impressed with the food, service and atmosphere! I would recommend the Magret du Canard! The waitresses were very friendly and being in the side streets of the old town made a lovely atmosphere. Reasonably priced for the quality of food too!

Shocking service, we waited and waited until I finally caught the eye of a waitress. Meals were same veg just five scallops on my main and four over cooked chunks of duck on other main with same veg. This after we waited ages for our meal. Never again, lots better than this.

This was a pleasant surprise for us after not being able to sit at 2 other restaurants. We had seen this place before and it seems that early in the evening there are few people but it gets busy later on. What we did not know is that there are many tables in a small alley in the back of... More

It was hot and most of the shaded tables in the Marche De Fleurs were taken so we stumbled a few blocks and found this shaded ally. The terrace (the ally) is behind the main restaurant. It was reasonable food - reasonable price - and a welcome bit of shade on a hot day

Me and my husband went here after searching for a restaurant to go to, we were not disappointed. We had great food and wine and the waitresses spoke great English. We both had the prawn Caesar salad and then I had the sea bass and my husband the duck! Both cooked beautifully and really tasty! The deserts didn't disappoint either!... More

We ate here last night and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The service was attentive and friendly and €32.90 for 3 courses each was very good value. Thoroughly recommend.

It was one of several restaurants recommended by the staff at my hotel near Place Massena. The waitress speaks English. They also have an English menu. The decor and ambience is romantic. I had the Foie gras de canard for appetizer, Coquille de St Jacques (scallops) for main course, and Soupe de peche with Sorbet abricot for dessert. The foie... More

I and my husband had been looking forward to going to this restaurant but I am very sad to say that when we finally did, the experience was terrible!!! We went to the restaurant on Thursday, last week for dinner at about 7:45pm I ordered the scallop with sweet potato mash, when the food arrived, the scallop was cold and... More

Went back to this restaurant after being very impressed here 3 years ago. Sadly I cannot say the same this time. Fish with vegetables. No potatoes of any kind on offer. The duck was very small quantity. Over cooked and tough. Will not be visiting again

Thank boveedy
