we had a wonderful meal there and had to restrain ourself from leaking the plates. the food was delicious and delicate, rich but not heavy. We congratulated the owner at the end of our meal and he informed me that the 16-years old apprentice had insisted on doing the cooking for the full services! quite an achievement considering some tables...

Visited as a group of 6 on a Thursday evening. Upstairs was busy so were shown to a nice table in a very pleasant basement area which was nicely decorated. Large group were also eating downstairs but considering the size of that group our order was quickly dealt with by helpful, friendly staff. Food was excellent, my slow cooked beef... More

One of our group had previously eaten at this restaurant and had booked for our first night in Arras where we were staying for a WW1 trip. Main restaurant is located on lower ground floor so winding staircase to negotiate. Good sized room and very busy which is a good sign. Owner took our drink order and introduced waitress for...

Sit at a table in the caves and enjoy delicious local produce, sipping local beer or even a champagne! Charming and happy hosts, discreet service and very satisfied customers - mainly local, which speaks volumes.

My husband had chicken in a cream sauce with french fries and salad. I had ficelle which I was looking forward to since it is a French dish I had never tried before. They served a crepe rolled with ham and mushrooms in a very thick, heavy bachmel sauce which drowned the food. I tried to scrape it off but... More

I TA'd  for restaurants in Arras and this came out as fairly on top. We gave it a punt and weren't disappointed. The restaurant is on the small street between the Grand and Petite Square. The place was rammed when we got there and transpired it was a large group that I guess we're doing a battlefields tour. Anyway. service... More

Just delicious - mop your plate with bread type stuff because the flavours are so good. The 16yo apprentice cooked last night - it was busy, but delicious flowed out of the kitchen

i really liked this restaurant because its simply, uncomplicated and very French. Its bistro/cafe/restaurant style. It maybe seen as a little commercial but the food is good and the service was great. All the staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful. They want you to have a good meal and a pleasant evening. We enjoyed the food and we had a... More

Situated in between the two main squares this place has all you need, a varied menu, friendly and helpful staff who spoke good English but the food is just average. The atmosphere is great as we ate outside and watched the world go by. A walk later suggested there were several other better places to eat.
