“good to see this restaurant back on form”
Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

this Sunday 21 April, this restaurant was back to previous standards. On a sunny day, every table seemed to be taken. We had a table on the balcony
there is a €41:50 menu offering more choice than the 2 per course cheaper one. i particularly enjoyed my chicken liver terrine and the grilled salmon. The regular serving staff had a number of young trainees helping out. Their enthusiasm was encouraging.
The meneton salon white wine there is a favorite of ours.
With its superb location on the river, i think that when on form this restaurant is worth the journey out from the centre of Paris. Our bill averaged €63 per person

“good food in a riverside setting”
Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

i thought the food much improved since my previous lunch iin April 2012 and the 25% increase in price to €41 for the 3 course menu has perhaps enabled better produce to be used. My pea soup was lovely, and the veal liver sliced and cooked to my taste. Enjoyed the Meneton Salou red wine which was very light in character. Friendly staff and I recognised only one of them from previous visits
go by RER to Rueil Malmaison and walk over the road bridge. chilly on this January Sunday but nice view of the river. Walked back afterwards to Nanterre station

“A nice setting, but nad food and service”
Reviewed July 26, 2012 via mobile

The restaurant is undeniably in a beautifull setting, right next to the Seine and at the spot where Monet's famous painting took place.

However, the food is horrible. My dish was served warm instead of hot and the beef was too chewy. This is totally unacceptable for a restaurnt this price. I find better food for a third of the price in cafés.

The server was nice but too intrusive.

“lovely setting for some good food”
Reviewed April 22, 2012

we have lunched here 2 or 3 times a year for some years. Lovely setting on upper floor overlooking the Seine. On this Sunday, the place was uncommonly empty. Each of the 3 of us had a different starter (I the serrano ham) and two had swordfish as main course and I the calves liver. They gave me a thinner cut when i said the first plate was too thick. Meneton salou wine was good. Service attentive. We thought menu at €32:50 was good value. Remains on my list to go again

“Surperb location for Sunday lunch”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

Over the years my wife and I have been here for Sunday lunch when in Paris. This time I was alone. In January the balcony is enclosed in plastic to remove exposure to the wind but preserve the view. On 15 January it was too hot in the sun next to the plastic so I moved into the middle of the balcony - much cooler. There is a 3 course Sunday menu of €32.50. I had a thin tart (more like a thin pizza) followed by calves liver. Both were tasty but not perhaps quite upto the standard of previous visits. Service was good. Other diners were French families, often of three generations together. This we have noticed have often been the case here. A relaxed meal and I would aim to come here again.
