This was a lovely restaurant I visited in the summer whilst riding through Valence in my motorcycle. Food was lovely and we ate in a beautiful open courtyard with tables. The owner speaks perfect English and she made me feel very welcome. Prices were reasonable...More

A ‘real’ bistro - no strangers or foreigners and really only french guest (at least the vast majority). The food is excellent and the servers are friendly - but remember that you are in france - he it is an honor to get served... The...More

Serves great French brasserie classics plus some local specialities like ravioles and frog legs. Good eaters will enjoy the big portions. Terrace is pleasant and often packed whereas waiters are friendly.

Family of four ate early for dinner. Meals were pretty good and service was very good. €105 for four main courses and a small (€13) carafe of wine was plenty so the only downside would be VFM.

This is a typical brasserie with art deco style in the interior and a terrasse for the summer. Service is friendly and efficient and you can order in English. However, I departed from the original brasserie specialties with a raw tuna salad for the entrée,...More

We ate outside and very pleasant it was too. Linen cloths and napkins, sparkling glasses and cutlery were an excellent start. I think the restaurant is part of the Chabran group, so you can expect a certain level of service and food. The service was...More
