Had a table d'hote with 4 courses (starter, soup, main, dessert, tea/coffee/milk) for $26 per person. Excellent choices, good value and superb service. Can choose to have the table d'hote with wine for an extra $8 per person. Highly recommend.

Spending three days in the area, we had to decide if we would return to a previously enjoyed choice, or try something new. We are sometimes disappointed on return trips, so based on reviews here, we decided to try L’Orchidee rather than a return to either of our other highly enjoyed experiences in town (Auberge des 3 Canards, & La Patriarche). We both choose the mid priced table hote. The escargot was served in a rather bland thick sauce in a commercial puff pastry, not recommended. I had the seafood plate; shrimp where fine, mussels very dry. My partner had the prime rib, which was very tender. The chocolate dessert was ok, nothing special. The wine included was quite non-descript. Service was attentive though on par with that at an inexpensive diner. I greatly dislike having used plates scraped and stacked on the table at my place setting.

Went there for a wedding reception.
The food was good for the price we paid.(30$ for a four services meal, no wine).
It was nothing new, but well excecuted. The service however was ok. Actully the staff had no idea that it was a wedding reception... wich was actually weird !

We visited this restaurant following Tripadvisor advices. We were greatly impressed by the food. There are 3 choices of table d'hôte between 26$ and 55$. For 16$ per couple, you can add a bottle of wine. Cote de boeuf was juicy of one of the most delicous meat we've ever had. Waitresses were welcoming and charming. The restaurant is well-maintained. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for good food at a very good price.

Recommend to reserve in advance if you want a table by the window with a view on the river. There are only few tables by the window. Otherwise, you can have a view on the river without being to one of those tables.
