“Disappointed. ”
Reviewed November 9, 2013 via mobile

Considering the place recently had a refit there shouldn't be tiles missing off the staircase and the toilets shouldn't smell of urine. Food v average, the bread on my burger was like chewing gum.

“yummy”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

prime position and a welcoming atmosphere. Staff were friendly and we managed to converse in a mixture of french and english. My partner enjoyed his so much, both main and dessert, but for me, the tarte au citron was to die for! Not a gourmet restaurant, but excellent if you are in a hurry. Quite expensive.

“Great spot ordinary and pricey food”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

You pay for the prime position with the dearest coffee in Saintes(e3.80 for a grand creme) with decent but pretty ordinary food again at a premium price. Service is dependant on how busy it is! More like a chain restaurant but perfectly acceptable for a snack meal or you can be lucky with their lunch specials. Go 50 yards uphill and there are two great restaurants to choose from at the side of the theatre!

“Disappointing, mediocre”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

This place has a prime prime position in the heart of the city, with a large outside area and lots of 'ambiance'. However we were sorely disappointed by the sloppy and offhand service and poor food, badly cooked.
