It's a typical chain food restaurant. There are stabil options to choose on menu. Some usual fast food options and also there are some local French cusine foods also (raw meats, tartars etc.) Tase is good, prices are average, service is poor.

Always been going to this restaurant only because it's close to home. It can be pricy but if you stick to the "duo menu" you get a good price n you will feel full. They never serve you chips if you come as a family which is sad. So, ask! For Almost everything.. Ask and it will be given. Kids... More

The title just talks for itself...just don't go there. The meat was tough, full of fat and tasteless, long beans full of water. And the service...you ask something to someone simply answering: "I don't take order"...without trying to ask one of her colleagues...

Average service and food. Steak was cold despite arriving shortly after order. Fries were cold. Sauce with steak was cold. Left waiting 20 minutes for service. We didn't realise it was part of a chain. Very disappointing.

I like this chain of Restaurants. I am a keen Steak Lover and it agrees with my low carb diet. Service is pretty good and this location is no exception. As well as catering for the more leisurely diners it can also deliver a speedy wholesome meal to busy works with little time to spare. A welcome and sort after... More

I didn't think this would be as good as it was. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The food was much better than we had expected, the steak was really good quality. From the outside we hadn't expected such a good meal.

Just returned from a meal there and it is unfortunately just average and a little expensive for what it was. It was relatively quiet and the waitress was quite abrupt although this may be more due to the language barrier rather than deliberate rudeness. Overall it's ok food and around 55 Euros for 2 meals with a beer each.

Works for the purpose: good food, fast service and peaceful environment for a discussions. My starter, goose liver was good for the price (bellow 7€) and main course, Cesar Salad with chicken was ok, maybe a bit too much salad dressing. Since this was a lunch in France we had bottle of red with the food. The wine was first... More

Nice looking place with good service. Main course salads were disappointing. Appetizer that included egg rolls was very good. Prices were reasonable. Think of it like a TGIF but a little better. Overall we enjoyed it as it was late and they were still open!

Wonderful food with wonderful service. Price is decent as well. Food for their duo/trio dinner sets that comes with 2-3 courses. Highly recommend their chicken and fish, beef a little too tough though. Do not get the chocolate mousse unless you have a sweet tooth! Ice cream is good Ben and Jerrys Ice cream!
