We were enticed into this place by a grumpy looking waitress who was pointing to a board at the front showing what seemed to be extremely reasonable prices. We sat down and ordered our beers and then were given a menu with prices double what was on the board. When we brought this up with the waitress she said that... More

A miserable waitress tempted us in by pointing out a 10 Euro menu which was fine as we were on a budget. After bringing drinks and rolls the real menu came out with prices at least twice the price and up to 55 Euros. We thought the whole street probably had the same scam so stuck with it. Food was...

18€ was the offer on the board and the lady was desperate to get us in so she offered a free drink. So we went for it! Meanwhile, having used the facilities, she had put away the 18€ board and only showed us the specials board. We didn't notice. The beer was watered down and the food wasn't brilliant. Then... More

I just can't say enough to warn you away from here. There where four of us who had very basic food and it cost €150. They are very pushy and offer a free bottle of wine. I ordered a fillet steak and I swear I got horse or something it was not fillet anyway. My wife got food poisoning from... More

Wish we had read the reviews before we got pulled in. Pretty bad. Brought wrong food out, we did get a free beer and were seated close to the fire on a cold wet day, but that's the best I can really say about it. Avoid!

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! It was free so...

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
