We chanced upon this restaurant on a stroll on a Friday evening. It turned out to be a very good choice. The waitress whom I suspect may be one of the proprietors was very pleasant. The food was good and my wife's kebab was outstanding. The service could have been a little more attentive but the food was very good.... More

Hot, weary, thirsty and hungry, four of us popped in for a snack, and were agreeably satisfied, even though we had the impression that the lunchtime was coming to an overdue conclusion, and others were also tired. We'd probably return, but unless we particularly wanted the informal touch we might try somewhere new.

In a hurry to eat we dashed into La Grillardine - we'd been there before, and it was well rated, but I didn't bother to read my previous review. There's nothing deeply wrong with the restaurant, it just isn't good enough to be No 2 in town. Dull bread, very ordinary starters, my oeuf en cocotte was tasty but undercooked.... More

Went to La Grillardine after reading good trip advisor reviews. We weren't disappointed! Confit de canard is a firm family favourite and it was delicious - served with a simple shallot sauce and perfectly crisp fries. Husband had the onglet - also great. There was a small choice of starters, but again simple and tasty. Salads de chèvre and oeufs... More

If you grow tired of Poncy, overpriced nouvelle cuisine then you could do worse than chow down here. Non Je ne regrette rein.

Charming, tiny grill serving simple, fresh food. A modern take on French staples: simple starters followed by 'steak and chips' which is offered as various cuts of beef; two duck dishes. Very nice wines. A vegetarian could dine here on limited dishes. And the crazy 'beer tart' is a great way to end the meal. All at reasonable prices. Well... More

Not expensive but very poor quality food. Very little atmosphere and while the service was friendly it wasn't very good.

La Grillardine is a small, friendly, warm and comfortable restaurant in the Old Town, run by a charming couple. The ambience was superb. The food was divine .... delicious duck, fabulous rillettes de poisson, amazing Cafe Gourmand. The wine was also first rate. The service was first class and all in all we enjoyed totally before repairing to our equally... More

Lovely day and experience. We were there on Easter Saturday, lots of choice of restaurants but so glad we chose this one. We shared a starter, I had a steak hache, pepper sauce and my wife had duck, shallot sauce both with chips and green veg. Followed by Cafe Gourmand, particularly memorable was the creme brulee ice cream. Everything was... More

A foul cold March night and we were staying close by in the old town. This place is a gem, with peronal friendly service from the charming couple who run it. Very small - are there more tables upstairs@ Excellent value set menu - the beer tart and ice cream selection were wondrous! As it's so near to where we... More
