We had a meal at the Val De Europe which cost us €69. It was terrible. The steak was really fatty, the salad all bruised and my little girls burger was pink in the middle so I sent it back. Terrible service and really over priced

We spent 6 days in Paris and this was by far the most disappointing meal. Food was luke warm - the steak I ordered was nicely cooked but had been coated in something that gave it a horrible flavour, the green beans were over cooked and the pureed violet potato was luke warm. Children's menu was OK although the crème de menthe was so strong no-one could drink it. The staff were not very attentive and seemed to give more attention to French speaking customers. They emptied the bins through the restaurant when we were there - not very nice. Wouldn't go back.

Separate menu for children. Fast service. One of the very best hamburgers I've ever eaten. Excellent ice cream for desert. Good value for money.

An average dining experience in the Bastille. We went here because we were exhausted after shopping. The staff were nice and attentive, the cocktails good, the food average (chewy steak) but for a chain restaurant mid-week, it wasn't bad. The only truly negative point was that my steak was served much rarer than I had asked for- in French- but the waiter was quick to correct that. We had a lovely little dessert as well. Not exactly gourmet dining but it did the job.
