“I'm a regular...this is my cantine”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

The title says it all.
I have been a regular at this place for 10 years.
When I need to host a business party or a place for a good meal with friends...Le Garde Manger always ends up on the short list.
Wine selection is great.
Food is just yummy...you have to try the house speciality, the Poached Egg with Morilles !
The staff is friendly, always welcomes you with a smile.
Reservation is a must if you are to host a party.

“Love it”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Walked in two times without a reservation at the beginning of the evening and they found a place for me (even though the restaurant was clearly fully booked). Would definitely go for reservations from no on. Relaxed atmosphere and fantastic food ... I'll be back!

“I'd go back again and again”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Lucky for us, this is a local restaurant. The service and atmosphere is warm and friendly. Don't be put off by the exterior, inside, you couldn't ask for a nicer vibe. The menu is amazing - we had the poached eggs and morel and the special fois gras terrine for entrees. Subtley done with just the right amount of flavor. Sweetbreads and skate for the main course. Both smooth, melt in your mouth. The portions are large by French standards and so we split the macaroon with salted caramel ice cream for dessert. Fantastic wine selection. And, above all, really reasonably priced. Our dinner with champagne, demi bottle of syrah and all of the above was less than 100 euros. This will be our go to spot with visitors or just a nice family meal.

“Good atmosphere, excellent food and friendly service”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

From the outside this restaurant may not beckon you in, but once you do, you'll never be disappointed. This was the third time I dined here and it was really great. Try the starter with the smoked haddock, follow that with the main course of rougets and finish with the lemon crumble. Divine. The restaurant can get a little noisy - ask for the table for four in the window.
