I had high expectations when i read the reviews but this was rather a disappointment although there were a few good things and with a few changes they could make an excellent burger. review made after tasting Le Bartholomé. The good things: the cheese was great and the bun was ok as well. Great bacon! Not so good: well, if you ask how you would like your burger cooked, don't F&*$ up! The bbq sauce was way to sweet and what do chives on a burger? Make sure your onions are tasty.... When you get your burger and eat it there, they still roll it in a paper. This makes sure the whole burger steams to a mushy, indefinable hump. It looked more like a McD burger then a good crafted burger. Maybe i should have taken the 'Composez vous-même votre “Hamburgé”' (make your own hamburger).... Oh, and the burgers aren't cheap, they have to pay the 8 persons standing behind the counter doing the hamburger assembly line...

Queue was long, but went super quick! It is a fast paced restaurant, so don't expect a relaxing environment to sit down for 2/3 hours. You get in and eat and go! People take away, but there is seating, but its very cramped. I didn't mind though, its fast!

In London there are great burger places like Honest burger, but this one tasted almost as good. That is a compliment!

Quite pricey though.

We ate here having read reviews on trip advisor. The service was very quick, too quick perhaps as they got two out of four orders wrong. I ordered the veggie option which turned out to be just the bread!!! The meat eaters did enjoy their burgers but not convinced they were worth twice the price of the McDonalds down the road.

We ate at the Montorguiel site - very quick and friendly service. For a change these guys make you actually feel appreciated for your business!
We had the Le Big Fernand and Le Bartholome burgers - magnificent, although it was a little overcooked for medium rare "au point". Delicious special sauce and original ingredients. Loved it! Of course it is almost like fast food in a fast pace place, but not fast food prices - 30€ for two persons. Nevertheless I would definitely return just because it was so tasty.
