“Good food and nice bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

I have been to Ananas twice recently and always ate very good food . Fish are excellent, well cooked, meat also. Lot of French influence. The bar is very noisy but a great place to have a drink before diner . Champagne are at reasonnable prices. We had good oysters.
The 1st ime I went there we were 8 people and sevice was excellent. The 2nd time, it was far worse. We had our table at 9.30 instead of 9 even if the restaurant was far from being full. Missing staff may be ? We waited very long to be served and once it was done, one of us had not the right order so when he finally got it we had all finished. As a result, we spent a long time waiting in the 1st rom a bit noisy and we did not even ate together. Finally they offered the drinks so they were fair.
However Ananas remains a good place to eat well and find great atmosphere.

“End of trip meal”

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Our group had mixed tastes in food and the restaurant was very flexible in offering a mixed range of starters to pick at. The staff were excellent and the food excellent.

“Great great great.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

So surprised. Last minute birthday celebrations with our large group went so well at ananas. the ambience was quirky, our waiter was attentive (and so theatrical), the food was amazing. Lobster ravioli and duck cassoulet ....yum yum yum. Can't wait to go back.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

We have just spent a wonderful evening at Ananas. The whole night was absolutely faultless (which I find to be a rarity these days) & a really fun & special night out.
Firstly the atmosphere in the bar gets everything off to a great start….great music, vibe & wonderful decor. Moving into the restaurant you are greeted warmly & it just kept going from there. Another wonderful space, excellent recommendations from the wine list & all the food was delicious. We also had an extremely efficient and entertaining waiter.
We reluctantly departed at midnight & vowed to be back sooner than later.
Thank you Ananas!
