“Fabulous service and excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

We visited this restaurant after reading good reviews on Tripadvisor. It was a short walk from the Holiday Inn and we prebooked on a Saturday evening which was good as every table was taken by 8.30pm. The restaurant is very attractive and we were greeted by a charming waitress who offered us an English language menu. There is a relatively small choice which is good as it usually means that the food will be fresh and well prepared. Likewise the wine list was relatively short but obviously carefull chosen as all the choices looked good - and there is the option of house wines which were popular. We had afabulous salmon slad to start which was huge and so shared it between us! The steak I had was among the best I have ever eaten with home-made fries which were delicious. It is clearly known for its steak as the majority of tables seemed to be having this. My wife had pork which she enjoyed. We only had room for ice cream for dessert. The service was excellent - courteous, unhurried and helpful. The cost was very good for the amount of food and quality plus a very good bottle of wine - 64 Euros. Overall a really good experience and one of the best meals we have ever had in France.

“Great little restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

I dined here twice during my stay a few days ago and could not have been more happy with the service and quality of food! A great, simple menu with quality ingredients cooked as they should be! Staff were very friendly and accomodating! Would definitely return if I'm back in Bougival! Cannot recommend highly enough! I went both with friends and my wife and have to say it is suitable for both friends and couples as well as small groups!

“Friendly restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

The young owner started this about a year back. Nice decor , parking is the only issue as restaurant is just off the RN 13 but one can usually find a place after a couple of minutes.

“Lovely place, food - could be better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2012

Living in the Boucle, we ventered o'er the Seine into deep dark Bougival and tried this small restaurant on the quai next to the Seine. It turns out that this place is owned by the same people who have the 'Portuguese' resto in Croissy.

- Very nice, young people.
- Modern, cosy room with sun, and parking in front.
- Good price/quality ratio.

- Very noisy room: they said they are buying some acoustic panels though.
- For me, very average French food. Also, the chips/frites were home-made, but badly home-made. It appeared they weren't double-fried and the chunky chips were still undercooked in the middle. Café gourmand was average.

All-in-all, they could do a lot better. Pleasant enough lunch out, with a reasonable price tag.
