Regularly eat here generally on Saturday lunchtimes before going to the football.

As others have said, the service is excellent, and the owner always very friendly, helpful and welcomes us warmly back time and time again. We have 14 month old twins and despite creating plenty of mess we're made to feel really welcome.

Food is great value for money. Always freshly cooked to order, but little requests are always accommodated without fuss. For example if we ask for the twins' food to be rushed through it's always done quickly while the rest of us relax and take our time. The little things mean a lot.

Highly recommended.

We went to The Brasserie after seeing the reviews on trip advisor. We were very pleased we did. Had a deliscious meal which was very good value for money. Lovely atmosphere and staff were very helpful. Will definitely go again.

I've been meaning for ages to get on here and review this lovely restaurant where three of us had a great meal whilst staying over in Ipswich with work. The food was really good and the waitress/owner was just the perfect host, really charming and humorous in just the right way. Her attentive service and charm made our evening. It was definitely the best place we saw around this area so I highly recommend checking it out!

We had a romantic meal at The Brasserie on Valentine's day in 2012, never to be forgotten, and when we decided to organise a small lunch with family and close friends for our Wedding Day we looked no further than The Brasserie in Ipswich. The owner made us feel as if we were in our own home with the surroundings of a very friendly atmosphere helped by a beautiful team of helpers to make our Day a memorable one. The food was of a 5 star rating with excellent choices of international standard. Nearly a year later when we will be celebrating our 1st Wedding Anniversary abroad, we will no doubt be thinking, "The Brasserie.... A toast to you...Thank you".

Staff were brilliant with a great attitude.
