Most disappointing Staff including a very capable but rude and disgruntled kitchen staff. Was advised all the fish was stale and not fresh. Never heard that before. Was served after 1 hour and 10 minutes and saw others too disappointed to be the paying customer and treated like they were restaurant was doing us a big favor. Would not recommend... More

I've been to this place a few times, service and food are both okay, nothing bad but nothing amazing. I went there again last Saturday afternoon around 2pm, there were 3 tables. I ordered a chicken burger, we waited about 30min, the manager did come by to say the chicken will take a bit longer, we were fine with waiting.... More

Had here dinner tonight. I read the reviews at TripAdvisor and honestly I expected something better. I had the Entrecote XL, and it did not have a lot of taste, too much fat too for my taste. (I should have taken the Filet of 220 grams.) Wine was ok.

It is a nice restaurant with a lot of choices, but the prices are similar to what you can get in the centre of Paris.

I went to the one in Morocco mall food court (I do not like the one in Gauthier because they have bad customer service). The one at the mall has a nice terrace, the waitstaff is very cheerful and when you take the ftour option for ramadan, you have a large choice of options to select your courses. We were... More

I simply disrecommend this place because expensive and not very good. Service is awful. Actually I don't think it will last much more, cause everybody thinks like me among my friends.

The location at city center is good with parking available. The meat is good and the ambiance nice. International Football always available...the service depends on the attendant. Prices are ok. Give tip.

On the second floor there is a big screen were we often seat and watch football matches. That is probably the main reason to go there so often. Despite that the restaurant is normally calm. This is a classic french chain where steaks are the speciality. I recommend the the "Tian de crabe". It is a starter with avocado and... More
