This is a very tricky report to write, as I would need to rate food, service, price level and atmosphere separately, to do it justice.we visited as a family. Food was great and didnt take too long. We had lovely steaks an duck, a beautiful vegetable terrine and pommes gratinees. Our waiter, the proprietor, I believe, helped us translating the... More

this is a popular restaurant in the city centre. The staff were most welcoming. The food was of variable quality - not sure we would have the "Welsh Maison" - basically melted cheese, again! Nice deserts though.

We stumbled across this restaurant on a Sunday evening. We were the only people in for the first half hour. Our host was very good. We are staying away out of town. He tried to book us a taxi without success but kindly dropped us off. Snails excellent. We chose the meal of the day 27 euro for 3 courses.... More

Situated just above the town square this restaurant offers some of the best choices of cuisine in Cambrai. Very friendly staff and really good and well cooked food. Not cheap, but you will really enjoy what you get and the ambience is great too.

I called there with friends, not for the first time have I been to this restaurant. It is a little more expensive perhaps, but the service is good with the owner speaking good English. The Staff a little less! The menu is impressive as is the wine list. We had some good food and an excellent Bordeaux 2011 to assist... More

L'Escargot is a small restaurant close to the Grand Place in Cambrai. We booked in advance it being a Saturday evening but in the event it was not necessary. We chose the 38 Euro menu and started with a plate of 12 l'escargot (what else?). My wife followed this with Beef tournedos which was excellently cooked whilst I had a... More

We had a nice evening, which was mainly thanks to the very kind lady serving us and providing us with information. The food was avarage. Not bad, but certainly not good either. The starters were okay and included a nice fresh tomato salsa. The main courses were not very good at all. Overly cooked vegetables looked sad next to the... More

Overall a nice place for dinner, convenient for Clos St Jacques. It does specialise in snails, but don't let that put you off!

This restaurant was recommended by our hotelier. We were there on a Saturday night and so went to the restaurant to make a booking - no problem we got a table for as soon as they opened. The food was delicious and service both efficient and friendly. We went for the four course menu and were delighted with what we... More
