My wife ordered the salad provencal which was described as what we know as a Niscoise with egg, green beans, tuna and potato, olives and anchovies. The haricot verts were boiled to a state of complete pale mush giving the whole salad a sad, predigested look--and there were no olives. I ordered the andouliette and pilaf (a sausage--one of their... More

The restaurant is situated close to the well-known castle of Fontainebleau. The service was adequate, but friendly. The quality of the food high, they have a good menu and the ambiance is nice, at least if you are not looking for a posh dinner. If the weather permits, it is nice to sit outside. Knowledge of English is, as in... More

After reading reviews, we quickly reserved. While we were at the restaurant, there were only about 6 tables occupied. The menu was 34€, overpriced for the quality of the food. Appetizers were good. But steak was razor thin and poor quality. Fish had no taste at all. Tarte aux pommes had a medicinal taste. Meanwhile, Spanish flamenco music played, why... More

We stayed in the hotel and ate here as we didn't fancy going out in the cold. The restaurant was full and we were lucky to get a table. The food was very French, very rustic and very good and very affordable. Would highly recommend if you are in Fontainebleau for a trip.

Service is very good and some English is spoken as well as an approximate menu being available. Prices are quite reasonable and the atmosphere is cheerful and intimate with tables pushed close together to maximize space. Arrive early or risk being turned away if you have not reserved a table. Cuisine is traditional; the gizzard salad was delicious and loaded... More

Le Bacchus is located downtown Fontainebleau along the castle Diane gardens. After visiting the castle, we wanted a gastronomic break. We really appreciated the restaurant for its tasty food and efficient service. The waiter was very helpful and advised us adequately. The inner decoration is compliant with the restaurant's name. Prices are reasonable, making le Bacchus a perfect choice for... More

Good restaurant, the dishes were tasty ,well presented and the quality of food was good. The service was good,the staff are very welcoming.We were outside and the terrace was clean. The only thing that should be changed are the tablecloths which looked basic. They have good desserts. We took charlotte au poire, it was fait maison and was delicious.

After the many touristy restaurants in the town this was a lucky find as it's not in the main food area. A very good menu (if a bit pricy on the wine list) and English is spoken by the owners and staff. We went back again, which we seldom do, so it must have been good!

Considering the other restaurants in the area, Le Bacchus' 3-course menu was fantastic value for money. Food delicious, hitting every note. Service professional, anticipating your dining needs as best they could with a full restaurant. We had the cod and steak for mains, simply divine. This is simple, no nonsense, down to earth food, that has 5 star quality without... More

We tried here on the Monday but they shut on Mondays so we went back the following day. They have two set menus 21 euros and 34 euros both with good choices. We ate from the 34 euro menu and my partner had foie gras which he said was delicious. We both had steak which was OK but not the... More
