We were duped!

When you walk in this neighborhood you are bombarded by restaurant hosts persuading you to eat at their establishment. The host at Au Boeuf was funny, sweet, and charming so we decided to give it a chance. We were given two free drinks which was very nice. It was some sort of rose wine (bleh) but... read more

We dined at this restaurant as we were persuaded by the owner of this restaurant when we walked into Rue Des Bouchers (a street filled with restaurant). The owner has a brilliant humour which we really appreciate so we decided to dine there. During the meal though we were very worried because I read some terrible reviews on trip advisor... More

Wish I've read the previous reviews earlier =,= We only wanted to order mussels at first and the waiter ignored us and kept telling us to order a combo of mussels and fish fillets. We accepted his 'kind advise' (wish I didn't) because we were actually hungry. There was no price shown on the menu so we asked. The guy... More

This place -and in fact the entire street- needs to be avoided at ALL cost! The physically pulled us into the restaurant and sat us down with the promise we would get a free drink on the house. We didn't get it. We got dishes we didn't order, they charge for extras you didn't ask for. Order 2 glasses of... More

The suggestion i would like to give tripadvisor is we can give score "ZERO" to this kind of restaurants. In short, this restaurant is worst one i've ever been!!!!! The menu does not have the price, all of the prices come from the mouth of the fast-talkers. And on the board of the front door, 15 or 20 euro for... More

We went into this restaurant because we needed to use the facilities and two members of staff were at the door, touting their business to passing tourists.This street is full of restaurants.We chose this place because the menu appealed and it had reasonable prices. It was post lunch and we were the only people in the restaurant.The lady who served... More

We came here for dinner as we were persuaded by the Spanish guy (I think he was the owner) to go for the 3 course meal deal. We had a complimentary glass of rose on arrival, and then had shrimp croquettes, moules frites and a waffle with cream for dessert. There are a lot of restaurants on the road so... More

We could not believe the negative reviews of the restaurant so we asked the waiter why so many,he explained that the reviews are for the previous owner and had nothing to... More

This was more of an 'part of the experience' stop for our group. It basically is an ally full of the same food so we decided to stop after being persuaded to eat by the man outside. We ate there late but the staff was great and the food was pretty good. I had the Sole Fillets that came out... More
