We enjoyed the lamb, morel chicken, fish of the day, and fillet mignon mains. There was a generous kids menu too. The chèvre focaccia starter was amazing. Charlotte seemed just good to me, but my husband thought it could turn him into a dessert lover. It was a little stuffier than we prefer, but would definitely go back for the... More

Dined here on Easter Sunday evening and were very pleased to find it open. The last time we had tried to visit (on New Year’s evening, a Sunday) the website indicated they would be open and so we were very disappointed (and stuck!) to find them closed. Lovely food, beautifully presented. Slightly expensive but the quality and service was very... More

Although our party of three arrived without a booking staff were very accommodating and helped us with a table very quickly. The staff again were very helpful in explaining each dish (my French is very limited) and made what I believe to be excellent choices for the wines to accompany the food. The food was great, each of us had... More

We took lunch here during our trip following the route of Raymond Blanc's early days. A busy place full of locals which is always a good sign. We chose from the menu of the day and the food was excellent-tasty and well presented. Enthusiastic and friendly service from the well trained staff and reasonably priced for a great lunch.

Such is the popularity of this Brasserie that it is almost impossible to find parking but we persevered and finally found a space about ten minutes walk away(and it was raining!) This is a meat lovers paradise,manna from heaven for my brother-in-law Eric,However myself and my sister Anne eventually opted for the fish option. There is a real buzz about... More

This centrally-located Brasserie is off the busy streets in a park. It's comfortable, and modern without seeming too austere. Everything was delicious and the presentation of the food seemed special. Although it cost a bit more than Brasserie du Commerce, the price was reasonable for a restaurant with a bit more pizzazz.

The dinner was very classy, we sat outside and watched people playing pétanque in the park. The waiters were excellent and helped us choose the wine to go with our food. We often did this in France and they always provided something suitable, at a reasonable price.

Very useful as not much else was on a cold October evening. Large restaurant , nicely furnished with different areas. Had a lovely veal en croute with quince. Had to ask the waitress what the fruit was with the meal as I thought quince was bitter, but when cooked it is delicious. Good food but quite expensive.
