“Decent food but lacking athmosphere”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Perhaps its the location of this Restaurant beside a roundabout outside the town but the place lacked atmosphere. Their steaks were quite tasty and their Desserts were also very good but the restaurant was practically empty. The service was efficient and the food served promply. Based on my first visit to a La Boucherie, I would certainly go back based on the food but on a casual basis not for a special occasion.

“Good beef house”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

This opened in St Jean d'Angely in 2012 and we have been with groups of friends a number of times. We've all tried different different cuts of beef from the menu and never been disappointed. It's family friendly and probably large enough not to need a reservation most of the time although we always book.
Good, affordable steakhouse food. Plenty of parking.

“Harvester on a bad day”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

This new restaurant is located on the northern outskirts of St Jean close to the Leclerc Supermarket. It is part of a chain which is undergoing an aggressive expansion program.
It is easy to find and has excellent parking facilities.

For those not used to French restaurant opening times, it operates strictly 12 noon until 230 for lunch and then 7-1030 for evening meals (Sat and Sun nights until midnight).

The building is brand new and themed in the usual La Boucherie red and white colours. Inside, the white tiling and red, reminded me of being sat in an abattoir.

Its very comfortable if not a little high density regarding table arrangements. On tables for two persons, expect no more than half a metre to the next table.

Service is friendly and fast. The staff are clearly new and not fully trained so expect errors and misunderstandings

The food - great fast food menu compilation - shame the actual food does not live up to everything else the place has to offer

The burgers - diabolical sauces and stale buns make this an unforgettably bad experience - I honestly can not recall a worse one anywhere

The Sea Bass - a joke - being pre prepared "cook in a bag", you would think that nuking it could not be easier - wrong !!! They over cooked it massively! A complaint about it yielded no interest.

So..... we returned the following week in the hope it was simply teething problems - no such luck - same "Harvester on a bad day" standard. Pre prepared food in the worst possible sense.

A shame as this area needed something middle of the road and "nice" - ah well back to MacDonalds for a burger !
