We stopped in Fontainbleau on our way to Paris for lunch. The restaurant is modern with lots of out door eating space. It was very busy at lunchtime!!! Our server was rushed. There was no wine by the half bottle so we had a carafe of rather poor red wine. We both had steak and frites. The steak was tough and I honestly can't recall anything special about the frites.
Not a memorable meal.

I took a 5 days Executive Education at INSEAD, I went there with my wife, we chose hotel & restaurants based on trip advisor recommendation.

We visited LÓvale Cafe (3rd best by trip advisor) on Sunday evening around 7:00. We realized that we are too early, since there were not that many having dinner yet. Most of other guest are just having there espresso outside. This restaurant is located at a very prime location in the city, right in the street corner, in front of the main visitor's area. Very nice ambience.

We had Cold Foei Gras, Grilled Sea Bass, and Rib Eye Steak. They had a pretty big plate which good if you are really-really hungry. Food quality was very good, although not as good as La Petite Ardoise.

Service was good, the waiter was very nice, and they have English Menu !

We did try to have quick breakfast on Thursday morning. This Cafe open around 7:15, since I was a bit in a hurry, I only had a very nice, yummy croissant with espresso.

Highly Recommended.

Had a really good meal and staff were friendly. Good buzz about the restaurant. If the weather had been better you could sit out and enjoy the surroundings. Fontainebleau itself an amazing place to be.

we've eaten here several times, the food is great and affordable and the staff speaks English! I've had their lamb and duck plate which is delicious, I would highly recommend their 'plate of the day' as it's always good at a better price.
