We visited here as we were starving and every other restaurant we had passed on Sunday evening was closed! Sadly it was a disappointment, It is overpriced, with frozen french fries, and creme brulee that had clearly just been sitting in the fridge and whipped...More

Space is friendly. Most people seem to want to change tables. Still, there is wi-fi. The menu is okay, the service average, the onion soup was stone cold, the burger was okay, the fries average. In fact it really is just average in all aspects....More

Crowded, very limited space to seat, tables are even on the door entrances. Service is poor, you have to seat where they want, not where you wish, food is almost "industrial" style, and expensive for what you get.

This is a great place to go with kids. They are expected here, not just tolerated. Very friendly service. Food is quite decent with reasonable prices. Also, safe for peanut allergies. This is a chain with locations throughout France.

I don't understand steakhouses where the chef does not know how to cook a steak to the requested color. When you ask for medium it shouldn't be raw inside? So this place is really not worth it. The kids liked their hamburgers though. Our waitress,...More
