I had the beef tenderloin and it was perfectly cooked. They even had my favorite beer to choose from. Fast service and reasonable priced. Always a good choice.

I had beef, my wife fish. It was cooked to perfection. We dined in the terrace, very pleasant setting. The petit chablis and the Cote du Rhone are excellent value for money. The waiter was friendly, chatty and savvy. We will certainly come back

We found this place whilst wandering around Angers one Wednesday lunchtime. The menu is quite extensive – including duck breasts, fish, beef and salads – and agreeably priced. There is an English version available for the less linguistically adept. The food is nicely cooked and was certainly coming out of the kitchen fairly swiftly, although we were warned that there...

The restaurant is well located in the city center, at walking distance from the cathedral and river banks. It is clean and waiters are helpfull, meal is good but far to be exceptional. Prices are OK.

Ate here on a Sunday when Angers was incredibly quiet, so we were served quite quickly. I chose a personalised burger, with beef, bacon and cheese and there was nothing to fault. The bread they serve just before the meal is excellent too, and staff made an effort to speak English to my family who can't speak French. The only... More

Tried the "original" burger and it was delicious. The side dishes were alright, though the fries were significantly better than the salad. Price is definitely high but they work until 15:00 during lunchtime. Service was great.

Different variety of meat in menu looks very tasty on the pictures. In reality steak was not that good as expected. Pricewise it’s not a cheap place but you should consider that located exactly in the city center. The service was ok and outside terrace is quite comfortable.

Went there for a late dinner and couldn't be bothered looking around for somewhere to eat... Friendly-ish service, however not the fastest.... I chose the 2 course meal @ €14, carpaccio de viande (cold raw meat... not really for me) and piece de Boucher (nice tender beef although a bit uncooked)... Should I come back ? probably not as this... More

Stumbled on this. Great food. Staff made great effort to help us as we are not great at French. Highly recommend it.
