Restaurant details
Reviewed June 1, 2019 via mobile

We picked this restaurant as it is just in front of the castle of Fontainebleau and had a terrace.
It turned out to be a good choice. The menu os strong on fish and seafood but has a series of classic French dishes too. Service was easy and friendly. We were served rapidly enough and the food was enjoyable. Suggestions for desert were delicious. In short, good pick if you don’t want to look further.

Kept it simple with a salad with gambas and a service of bulots. Tastes were good and prices OK for a restaurant set just opposite the chateau. The cooks made an instant mayonnaise to accompany the fruit de mer which was great.
Service very nice

Great food. Family-friendly. Hearty services.

By chance, we came here to celebrate our wedding anniversary cos It's one of the few restaurants that opens on Mondays.

Judging but the location we thought the Chateau de Fontainebleau would be visible while dining. Not the case, but not a problem at all.

You know you won't be disappointed when the owners of the place are diligently running around serving guests, leading the whole team by examples.

Staff were very friendly, a few who are English conversant. Even those who weren't would make effort to make guests feel welcomed. We came with two young children, the waitress was quick to get a high-chair ready for the little one.

"Le petit Napoleon", which is a cold shell food platter on ice was very fresh with oyster, prawns, grey shrimps, snails and whelks. Some sauces were provided but they're so fresh that the best way to enjoy was on their own, perhaps with some drops of lemon or onion vinegar.

The "Picanha" was heavenly! I asked for medium-rare, and it's one of the few times chefs got meats done just that, medium-rare. The well-seared and caramelised exterior and the inner juicy pink were even a delightful visual art. In mouth, the layer of fat would just melt, and the meat tender. Not a hint of bad cut on the whole 300g piece!

Wine list was delightful too. Not too comprehensively long, rather small but good range for all kinds of food. We had a pichet of Chablis to go with the cold platter and a glass of Saumur red with the meat. The Chablis was of good value. Not too light and flat as some Chablis might be, with good body and fruitiness like typical good Chardonnay. I guess the Saumur red was Cabernet-Franc dominant, fruity and light tannic, but not too overpowering for the dish.

As the delighter, Alessandra the owner served us a dessert with fireworks after knowing it's our anniversary.

Simply loved this place.

Right across the road from the Fontainebleau Chateau. We ordered the duck ahs the pork dishes. Both were superbly presented and delicious. Staff were excellent. Finished it off with an alcoholic dessert each. The lemon ice-cream with vodka and the Cassis and 2 Berry ice cream. Beautiful!!!
