Family run, I have been using this wonderful place for 22 years and never get board with it. One of their specialities is the warm oysters in a champagne sauce, they are to die for! My standard phrase sums it up " you can eat different but you will not eat better"! You may need to book as they get... More

A typically French restaurant, family run and very friendly with reliably good food. Worth booking earlier in the day as it fills up quickly.

We had booked a table from England and the owner spoke very good English, so we felt very comfortable. The meal was absolutely wonderful as it always is.

Quite an expensive restaurant with a nice service team who set a high expectation. Unfortunately food was overlooked and only warm. At 8 euros for an aperitif I'd expect more attention paid to the food finish.

We booked by telephone from the UK to ensure we got a table for a Sunday evening as this restaurant is quite rightly extremely popular. I would strongly recommend that you do reserve in advance as many hopeful “walk ins” were being politely turned away as it was a full house! Quirky but appropriate décor gives this well placed family... More

Yet another visit to this super restaurant, this time with old friends who were overwhelmed with the wellcome the food and the ambience. Jean- Paul and Lisa never fail to impress. We could not imagine coming to Montreuil and not having lunch or dinner here. It's really special.

Delicious food and excellent service from the wonderful staff. The wines are also good and reasonably priced - great to see half bottles of St Nicholas de Bourgeois on the list! We'll be back.

If you like traditional French food then this is a good place to visit. Run by a really charming lady and the chef can defiantly cook. We had really good meal it was fresh and tasty. Would always come back.

We booked this restuarant on our first day in Montreuil as we knew that this place books out quickly and especially at weekends. It turned out to be a good move for our final night in the town. It is a small restaurant run by a husband and wife team and they only run one sitting at night. The rugby-loving... More
