Arrived late due to struggling to find a park. Leave extra early on a weekend!! However arriving 15mins late was not a problem, i apologized and the waiter who served us was very apologetic that we couldn't find a park. We sat down and were handed menus and asked promptly what we would like to drink. We asked for water... More

We were looking for something a bit different for our family dinner and chose Larousse. The entree of fried camembert was delicious. The snails were tasty and served with bread to mop up the sauce. The veggies were a little lackluster, but still nice. My son had the duck and loved it. No food was left on any plates. We... More

Pork and cherries together with entrée of the scallops ,just enough room for a nice desert. weekly specials as well , considered worth... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the deep fried Camembert, roast chicken with camembert and asparagus sauce, and a garlic bread to share. All very delicious and very good value. Very much recommended.

Drove past a 100 times and finally ventured into the restaurant on a Friday night...and I'm glad we did! The atmosphere is certainly built around a provincial feel and it works. The staff are very attentive and the waitress knows her dishes. The wine list is not huge for which I find a blessing as they are on the list... More

I love French food, and was staying around the corner at Novotel. I drove past Larousse in a taxi, and was drawn to it because I love French food. While I waited for my plate of duck a l'orange to arrive, I read other TripAdvisor reviews. Based on this, I asked for the sauce on the side. That was very... More

The quality is pretty good for a traditional French restaurant, no BYO and very pricey. The service left a bit to be desired, a rather typical French attitude where more attention was paid to the well known (to the staff) patrons than to the rest of us, with a huge range of restaurants in the area we will not hurry...

Some people are describing the food as no longer French. I've been here many times over the years and the same food is on the menu that I always remember. Maybe it is because I have always chosen the same dishes, but to me it is still French. Duck L'orange and pate is always reliably good. Last Saturday night, because... More

There were six people in our group so we got to try a good chunk of the menu. Garlic prawns and snails were so garlicky that it was impossible to taste anything else. Liver mousse was nice but was served with uninspiring salad and orange marmalade (I do not think it did anything for the mousse). Lamb's brains were difficult... More
