“Enjoyable but rushed”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Been to L'assiette twice now (2012 & 1213) as it has a menu which suits my non red meat eating mother. Food is of a good quality, prices are good (compared to restaurants on the main square around the corner) but it always feels a little rushed. Things like the starters arrive before you have finished you aperitif (a big no no in France) and the main arrives within minutes of the starter being taken away. Staff are always friendly and try to speak English (as my French is a little on the basic side)

“Exceeded our Expectations”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

The reviews were not very encouraging but there were twelve of us and we needed to eat after attending a rugby game between Claremont and Munster.We made a reservation earlier in the day but we were a little late due to the demands on the tram service after the match. This did not create a problem for the management who understood the situation. Our table was ready for us and it was nicely located near one of the entrances. The service was excellent and the food was very good. Even though the restaurant was filled to capacity the waiters remained in very good humour and we had a great night in an excellent atmosphere. We were pleasantly surprised when we received a very reasonable bill at the end of a very enjoyable evening,

“Amazing”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

We visited here on new years day around 8pm and they quickly made up a table to suit our large party of 11, tucked out of the way of the main restaurant! (maybe to keep a rowdy group of English out of the way but it worked well for such a large group of us!) we all had 3 courses and everyone said how fantastic the food was! I had the hot cheese and walnut salad to start followed by fillet steak and the apple tart! All amazing! We found this holiday it was hard to please all 11 of us, but this place managed to do it!!! Aswell as great food the service was excellent, allowing us to trat our dodgy french but speaking good english when we failed! We would definitely visit here again!!

“shame about the vinegar”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Really nice waiter, really bad maître d'.
The prices are OK, but it was a shock to find a fly in the salad!
In fact, it came from the vinegar. There were several flies swimming in the vinegar bottle!
When we pointed this out to the maître d', we didn't even get an apology, still less a gesture of good will about the bill.
Such a shame.

“Good service, poor meal”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

I had visited this restaurant some years ago and was impressed. This time we were served a meal that had obviously just come out of the chill-freezer, that had not been adequately heated in the microwave (my wife's meal was in fact cold) and where the sauce of my veal dish was still partly congealed, and the plates were cold.

The service was, however, attentive and prompt.
