Excellent food and service, I had a 200g Steak with Camembert sauce, it was so good I wished I had had the 400g for 6 euro more. Tartiflette was very good too and the desserts (cafe gourmand) delicious.

After not seeing anything vegetarian on the menu one of the really helpful waitresses put together a delicious salad of goat's cheese, avocado and veg which was very filling. We both finished the meal with huge deserts and left fully satisfied. Definitely worth a visit...More

Wanted something close to hotel and seemed quite busy. Not particularly cheap, but food pretty good. I had a salad which was really good and my husband said his steak was excellent. You do get quite a bit of road noise but not unbearable.

Close to our weekend apartment in Alencon and just outside the centre this restaurant is an excellent find. Tasty food cooked well and priced fairly in a family friendly atmosphere. Do not arrive too late, Alencon is not a late night sort of town!

Very nice place. We found it through trip-adviser. The food was great, the staff very helpful. Comparing what we normally pay in Paris for the same service, I can say that it was not expensive at all. A good place to lunch if you are...More
