I think this must be the 4th time we have eaten here in the last few years, this time for Friday lunch. Meal and service was very good and a bottle of Champagne ( of which they have a huge choice ) made a welcome start to a weekend in Reims.

Do not let the some what "anonymus" entrance make you walk by this excellent restaurante, it is much bigger inside then you would think. I do love "confi de canard", and this restaurant makes it very well! The staff was very friendly and spoke reasonably good english, and was not unwilling to do so (unlike some other places in France).... More

We came here tonight from TA recommendations. We arrived at 7pm, very off season & it was predictably quiet. We had a warm welcome, a nice choice of tables and a glass of champagne while we chose. We shared a salmon rillette (a large entree!) and a sole meunière each, washed down by an Aligote (it was so good, we... More

Visited last saturdaynight, very busy but service fast and good. Food was very tasty and freshly cooked. Mussels were great and the overall experience was very food. As the weather was really nice we sat outside and as this is a pedestrian area you dont get covered in car fumes

This brasserie is off the pedestrian area, so easy to find. After having not eaten good food in northern France for a week, this was a welcome respite. Mussels were good and a large portion, served in a mushroom cream sauce. My foie and charcuterie salad was also very large and quite tasty. For the area, reasonable prices. Recommended.

Went to the Grand Cafe reading the reviews with a bit of apprehension because of service but we came on a day that they were not busy so service was fine. Had the mussels with frites on champagne sauce and they were to die for and a very nice quantity, that and a bottle of Champagne ( had the Rotschild... More

Can recommend for the food. Actually seems to also have the best fries in Reims. Watch out for the wine list. It does not show the house wine, so remember to ask for a pichet or carafe of the house wine; it is good and cheaper than those on the winelist. Service reasonably attentive. One slight niggle was that when... More

Bad food, bad service. We were looking for a simple traditional brasserie and on the surface this looked the part. Unfortunately I only thing I can recommend about this place is the exit. Service was so slow and surly. They didn't have 4 of the champagnes on the menu. It took over half an hour to get any champagne -... More
