A sunday lunch time - packed with locals we were lucky to get a table.
Service is fragmented. But worth the wait. Specialise in rotisserie meats but fish and other dishes on offer although in limited choice - which may differ on another day/night. Recommend you book.

The service and welcome we're good and the setting couldn't be better. Reserve and get there early for a waterside table, (max 4 pers at these tables).
The food lets this restaurant down. The Travers in BBQ sauce were mostly fat and undercooked and the steaks fatty and full of gristle.
Be aware that this is a popular place for groups and so if you're looking for a quieter or romantic evening, you're better off going to Potager de la tour next door.
After two bad meals here I won't rush to go back although the setting is very good.

We came across the restaurant on a morning run along the river and were attracted to the whimsical feel of it and outdoor location with lots of lights strung up and flowers on trellises. We went for dinner and had a great meal - I had a chicken/pork and veal plate that I hadn't ordered, but that was unbelievably good. The waitstaff was young, fun and really nice. Lots of locals. Great photography in the main restaurant. This is a romantic place to eat dinner. Great winelist. Great food, but its really all about the location. Would strongly recommend for the experience, if not the food.

We were rather wary about coming here given some of the reviews but were v pleasantly surprised. It's a lovely location, clearly frequented by lots of locals and the food was great. The staff definitely had an "edge" about them & had been quite aggressive the night before when we were trying to book but our meal passed without incident!

We arrived for a meal on a Sunday evening. The experience began fairly well, as the owner greeted us and helped us navigate the French menu. However, after that he left and began spending time at the next table over from us, joking about people who speak English. The wait staff were very difficult to find and didnt seem at all interested in taking our orders or providing any service. When paying with credit card, the cashier laughed rudely when we attempted to sign the receipt. Food was decent, view of river was excellent, but the staff really ruined this experience for us. This was a really negative experience due to the rudeness of everyone working here.
