Steak was perfect but fries and sides were cold and not great tasting. Very expensive for what it was. Not a good place for english speakers.

Terrible slow service and bread and food that tastes like it has been cooked in old used fat. Just avoid!!

Friendly staff, speedy service, friendly with children. Food was tasty enough but there wasn't an awful lot I actually fancied on the menu ( and I'm not a fussy eater). If you want basic food that's pretty standard fare, this is your place. Quite pricey

We recently visited Paris and stayed in a hotel near by this restaurant. We found it very hard during our stay to find a restaurant that spoke English or had a English menu except McDonald's. Hippopotamus displayed a French and English menu outside which was great! The waitress also spoke good English and took our order. We both were happy... More

Great food. Priced higher than comparable in UK but for what you got, delicious food, excellent service, good portions it was well worth it. Busy with locals. Would defo return. Only issue is with the toilets, absolutely spotless but the washing station (basins, mirrors, dryers etc) were shared and I didnt feel comfortable with this.

My husband and I were looking for somewhere to have a quick light meal with our one year old and three year old. Having looked at the menu outside and seeing that they offered kids meals we entered. A rather pissed off looking member of staff seated us. She asked if we wanted to sit inside or out, we said... More

Happened across this place while we were in the shopping centre. They had high chairs and a children's menu which was good. That said, it's a shame that the chicken nuggets and chips didn't come with anything - veg, salad or even baked beans maybe. My son thought it was ok and liked his dessert though. My husband and I...

Popped in here last night for dinner. Sirloin was so so. A tad tough. My wife ordered the rib eye. A better choice. Kids meals were OK, large portions! Service was ok, not particularly friendly but not rude either. Just very functional. The place had a kids area which was a nice touch.
