Good stop for lunch although wasn't busy on a Friday lunchtime in November, with just a few locals in for lunch (always a good sign). Extensive menu, with a few specials.

Ate here over the weekend (Nov 2016) with my wife whilst staying in a local hotel. We were very warmly greeted and shown to our table, downstairs in the cellar, which is lovely. Drinks order was taken promptly and we were then left to ourselves to settle and look at the menu. Our order was taken by a very polite... More

we had a wonderful meal there and had to restrain ourself from leaking the plates. the food was delicious and delicate, rich but not heavy. We congratulated the owner at the end of our meal and he informed me that the 16-years old apprentice had insisted on doing the cooking for the full services! quite an achievement considering some tables...

Large group were also eating downstairs but considering the size of that group our order was quickly dealt with by helpful, friendly staff. Food was excellent, my slow cooked beef... More

Main restaurant is located on lower ground floor so winding staircase to negotiate. Good sized room and very busy which is a good sign. Owner took our drink order and introduced waitress for...

Sit at a table in the caves and enjoy delicious local produce, sipping local beer or even a champagne! Charming and happy hosts, discreet service and very satisfied customers - mainly local, which speaks volumes.

My husband had chicken in a cream sauce with french fries and salad. I had ficelle which I was looking forward to since it is a French dish I had never tried before. They served a crepe rolled with ham and mushrooms in a very thick, heavy bachmel sauce which drowned the food. I tried to scrape it off but... More

I TA'd  for restaurants in Arras and this came out as fairly on top. We gave it a punt and weren't disappointed. The restaurant is on the small street between the Grand and Petite Square. The place was rammed when we got there and transpired it was a large group that I guess we're doing a battlefields tour. Anyway. service... More
