We were searching for somewhere to eat on a Thursday evening in Amiens, we called in at the Retroviseur and were disappointed to learn that he was not serving food. So we asked for some advice and decided to have a beer. The owner came out and asked if we wanted a steak, so we agreed and in a short... More

We ate inside here on a cool, damp night in April. Staff very friendly and patient as we practiced our poor French on them. Enjoyed very well cooked reasonably priced local cuisine. Inside it is very relaxed, informal, and could have been the origin of French shabby chic!

Return again and again We always go early and sit at the bar initially, usually fills by 20.00. Food looks fantastic and is as good as it looks. The atmosphere is terrific , casual and comfortable. Costs, S. 7euro , Main 16 euro D. 6 euro and all classic choices have been well worth the cost. Staff are always helpful.... More

Came with large group. This is a casual bar/restaurant with helpful staff. Can sit inside or outside - by the time we left the large outside area was packed tight (even on a cool) on a Friday evening. Wide range of beers, and staff helpfully explain the differences. I had salmon appetizer, followed by their lamb specialty (slow cooked) and... More

A good choice of classic French meals. The quality is excellent and reasonable cost. I had the slow cooked (7 hours) lamb and it was fantastic. Located in the lively riverside area of Amiens close to the cathedral.

We stopped in here for a quick beer, before deciding where to eat. The waitress happily explained the differences between the choice of draught beers they had available. We sat outside by the door, and her and the waiter happily chatted away to us in between serving other customers. It felt like we had been coming here for years. We... More

This restaurant is close to the river in St Lieu area. There is an outside eating/drinking area which is extremely popular for both lunch and dinner. The latter is available at 7pm. I have visited several times, the waiters/waitresses are so friendly and helpful, in particular Celine who went to great lengths to explain the menu. There is a good... More

We spotted almost by chance that the Retroviseur had several vegetarian options on the menu, rare indeed for a restaurant offering French cuisine - we like to encourage this so we gave it a try. We were not disappointed in the assiette végétarienne (a mixture of deliciously cooked vegetable and salad leaves with a potato gratin) and the célèbre fermier... More

We spent quite some time wandering around the sights of Amiens looking for a reasonably priced evening meal before settling on Le Retrovisieur. Usefully the venue offered a menu in English although we weren't aware of this until we sat down. It took a while to be served initially but once we were welcomed the service was good from then...

After being rudely turned away by an empty restaurant on the other wide of the river we stopped for a drink here, and were pleasantly surprised so moved inside for our meal. The outside seating was full of young people smoking so inside was a nice quieter space. The waitress was friendly and chatted to us about the Australian war... More
