The location of the restaurant was perfect, in a lovely square and facing the beautiful Mairie. My companion and I both chose the €19 three course meal, and the portions were massive. The food itself was really tasty and beautifully presented. The waiter was helpful and attentive.

The service was rather slow and the welcome typical of the North, shall we say it isn't artificial. Americans be aware, they are not being rude just true to their values of genuineness. As for the food, there isn't anything you couldn't make at home yourself. I enjoyed a tuna and hard-boiled egg starter. Anduilette and chips followed by îles... More

Like all French bars and restos the barman waiting at the door often looks less than welcoming at times, but a cheery "Bonjour!" and you are welcomed with a smile and courteous service.

Very typical French restaurant on the Valenciennes main square. Slightly dated interior only adds regional charm to the place. Quite popular with the local population, but highly recommended for visitors: this is the place to try local, typical for the Nord (Ch'ti) dishes. And of course local and Belgian beer in great selection.

When I want fast service and have something to eat and to drink I will go here. Food is fine, and beer is good. It is really a Café and not a Restaurant, so set your expectations accordingly. That done, this place is good. View on the Hotel de Ville and Place d'Armes!

I ate here with my colleagues last week and we enjoyed a great meal. Shrimps, Escargots, cheese selection. Excellent wine, excellent food. Highly recommended!

Parisian-style French cafe, very well situated for scoping out the town centre. Friendly and welcoming staff (we were greeted as we came in), and the best Irish coffee I have ever had the pleasure of sipping.
