Although a bit understaffed, the food of the 3 courses surprise menu was sumptuous and attractively served. The place offers service with a smile at a charming dining environment. The ambiance was warm and hospitable.

I went there in the evening with a friend and was really amazed by the warm welcome and the tasty meals I was served. I definitely recommend the Charlotte aux framboises which I first suspected being industrial .Now I can attest it is homemade! For sure I'll return to this restaurant! (I'm French!)

The food tasted amazing. We all went for the 3 courses surprise menu and it was great! We are going to visit this place again! The ambiance was top as well.

Just thoroughly enjoyed this place, compact, comfortable, good service with a smile ( a little slow, but we were in with a big party and we were there to spend time and catch up, so we were not surprised or inconvenienced in anyway) - but the big surprise was the food which was better and more imaginative than we might...

We got there more by surprise because our stay was close to the restaurant but we had a really great dinner experience. We had the 5 course surprise menu and one dish was even better than the other. I can really recommend this restaurant, we had a great dinner and the service was veeeery friendly.

We've been there twice, one time with friends, and the other time for a Valentine's day. My friends still remember their delicious dessert and I still remember what the manager did. The flowers seller came in (like they always do, with a bouquet of roses) and he asked him to give a rose to every woman in the restaurant for... More

We came here several years ago, loved it so decided to return on this visit the weekend before Christmas. It is a small place away from the centre and the menu is very varied as are the clientele, from families with children to romantic couples! The owner, who does front of house, is very welcoming and knows about wines. Once... More

I really wanted to like 1798; I'd seen reviews of it years ago and thought perhaps it'd be a good place for a special occasion. So when my partner was taking me out for my birthday, I suggested we go there. The atmosphere was gezellig (though we were quite cold and had to ask them to turn the heat on),... More

1798 takes great pride in the dishes we serve. We treat our food with respect and are professional in handling, preparing and saving it. If someone would ever get sick from eating at our restaurant we would gladly excuse ourselves and compensate. Would this really have been an accusation we are confident you would have contacted our restaurant if not... More

Our 2nd visit to this wonderful restaurant was not disappointing. We went for the 3 course surprise menu, I was delighted with the fish choices and my husband thoroughly enjoyed his hare! He would never have chosen it on a menu, but found it delicious. The friendly owner explained all of the ingredients (some of which I had never heard... More
