Spotted this restaurant as we dragged our hand luggage from our parking to our hotel. We were both starving after a long day travelling from Bilbao. As it was getting late we checked if they were closing soon - the staff were very helpful and reserved us a table (the restaurant was quite full !). After checking in to our... More

Not too pricey! Great service. Great variety of food. Accomodating to Americans. I ordered the cochon. It was terrific.

Looks a lovely Brasserie with an interesting menu. Good wine list, although lacking in carafe's. I like white, my wife likes red. Staff friendly and attentive, although when we visited, it was clear there were a few new members of staff who struggled to deliver the right plate of food to the right table. Starters were very good, two types... More

I had dinner at Le Square last night. I was alone on a business trip. I felt very welcome. The food was delicious. Especcialy la 'terrine de S. Jacques a la Bretonne'. They told me it is their specialty.

Came here for the second time today for lunch, after being there last year already on recommendation by a friend. I had foie-gras as a starter with an incredible avocado & figs sauce that was incredible, while my fiancé had the delicious salmon tartare. For the main course, we both had the fresh Cabillaud (fish) with its risotto & vegetables... More

We love the French Cuisine, that's why we went to this restaurant. The food was great. We chose the menu of the day and a bottle of the Touraine white wine. It was fantastic. The staff is very friendly.

Situated very close to L'u.ni, this is a very good and reasonably priced restaurant. We choose from the menu gourmand at €26 per person for two courses, with dessert an additional €6. I choose eel cooked in garlic butter to start, it was delicious. There is outdoor seating, which on a balmy night enhanced the experience. Good wine choices offered.

We came here with a booking for group of 30 that turned into 35 without notice. We messed the staff around a lot and yet they responded with tolerance and then turned out an exceptional meal for everyone including vegetarians and special diets. Over 30 melt in the mouth chocolate fondants for dessert must be the high spot! Total bill... More
