“Atmospheric and tasty”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

My wife and I actually had to eat here twice during our stay in Nancy. We really enjoyed the first meal we had there, and there were other things on the menu that we wanted to try, so we returned. The first evening we sat upstairs which was very nice. The second time we were downstairs which was less nice, but still good. Only problem sitting downstairs was the server seemed to forget about us for a while. Other than that, the food was excellent and the dessert was fantastic. Highly recommended.

“Appalling ! ! !”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Don't patronise this restaurant, especially if you have a baby!!!
We tried to eat there and asked for a table for 2 at 6:00pm on a Saturday evening. The restaurant was empty and we wanted to eat straight away. At first they seemed happy to try and seat us but when they realised we had a 6 month old baby in a buggy they changed their response to no. They suddenly had no tables available! We left in disgust. I guess that family values have no place in certain French restaurants. More than that, it was the way in which they were entirely dismissive of us because of our baby daughter. Not even an apology for not being able to cater for the 3 of us!
I can't comment on the food, ambiance or even the waiting staff. We never got that far and now we never will. No second chance for this rude restaurant. If there was an option for a ZERO mark, I would have given it.

“Gut-Busting Deliciousness”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

We had a great time at Le Bouche a Orielle. We went with the basic fondue, and it was our first time at a fondue restaurant. The language barrier led to a little confusion and I didn't find the service friendly, but it was adequate.

The fondue itself was delicious, and the portion was huge. We stuffed ourselves and nearly died and then stuffed ourselves some more. We didn't realize the shot of liquor they give you is to be drank when you start feeling full - supposedly it "burns a hole through the cheese" in your stomach allowing you to eat more. We drank it at the beginning - whoops!

We felt the price was totally fair for a ton of food and the very necessary bottle of dry white wine to cut through the cheese. Would totally go here again, and maybe try some of the other cheese dinner options on the fascinating but confusing menu.

“An extraordinary place!”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

Absolutely fantastic - what a great meal/time we had there. Glad we booked as they were completely full and people were queuing, hoping to get in. The food is amazing, the portions are huuuuge, the waiting staff are very friendly and the decor is fascinating. If you love cheese- this is the place for you! Even if you don't, this is still the place for you. The price we payed was more than reasonable, too - so all in all, we were very happy!!

“Not only for fondue...”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

Good restaurante in Nancy, we went there to have a fondue, but at the end we choose a plate of meet for two. It was enourmous, very well served. Home made french fries were excellent. Service was correct. An address I would recommend in Nancy. Reservation is recommended, the restaurant is very busy.
