This is not at all like the restaurants in busy tourist centres. It is family owned. Great pictures on the walls. Menu on blackboards (there is an English one available- not on a blackboard obviously). Not a huge menu but big enough. Service perfect. Staff...More

We lived in Le Vesinet for 3 years from 1980 - two of our kids were born there. Le Bel Ami was our favourite place for Sunday lunches, also Friday nights when we could get a baby sitter. We are about to visit Paris soon...More

I like this restaurant because it IS stereotypically French from the geometrically ugly floor tiles to the warm woods of the bar, the restaurant name on really beautiful, useful, sharp steak knives, or the little 12 inch table rounds they stow next to your table...More

I agree with some of the other reviews. Quaint, good food and good service. I'm not sure I agree or totally disagree with the limited menu someone else posted. Most small French restaurants don't have expansive menus. If you want a vegetarian option, you'll have...More

We took our B&B hosts here for dinner. Nice French Bistro, good food, wine and service. The cote de beouf was excellent and a good dish to share. The lamb dish was good as well. Although I'm a beer drinker, opted for wine and was...More

Show up at a restaurant on a Tuesday night 5 minutes after they open and they ask if you have a reservation??? We didn't, but the folks at Le Bel Ami sat us anyway. It became obvious why you want to make sure you have...More

We were taken out for our anniversary by some dear friends. The food and wine was just fabulous. And the 3 musketeers who were overseeing things were a delight. We carried on till 3am, with a bit of dancing to finish off a remarkable evening....More
