There isn't a lot in Valenciennes but this is a gem. We have a 3 course meal each and everything was lovely. We were lucky the weather as lovely and we could eat outside. Everything was as it should be.

We eat two times for celebration. It is a little traditional in modern environment. You can get good seafood, shells and also traditional frog legs.

I was recommended this by the hotelier and I'm grateful to him. This is how you imagine French food should be. An amuse geulle followed by an excellent prawn gateau and a very tender steak with home made chips all for a reasonable price perfectly corresponds to expectations.

We had reserved and confirmed our dinner for about 12 people and as we arrived, our table was already occupied by a group of happy tourists. Well, the owner has done a mistake, a real misunterstanding ! The situation could have turned angry, but he succeded in convincing this group to go in another restaurant, so we had our table...

Right in the square in Valenciennes, and being Pentecost we were delighted to find it open. We reserved a table in the outside fully enclosed section of the restaurant, which was really lovely to be able to see outside, despite the unseasonably cold weather. The waiter was charming, helpful and the food was excellent. Would highly recommend this place.

Located on the central square, this typical and well-known Brasserie is a must to be visited to enjoy both a typical French brasserie cuisine and ambiance. Alexandre, the Director, is welcoming all the guests like friends, when all the staff is very friendly and professional. Menus are pretty attractive, but you can also enjoy gastronomic cuisine
