We were lucky somebody just cancelled their booking just before we came in. The owner was very friendly and welcoming, we were quickly given the menu. We took the civet de sanglier (wild boar stew) which was rich and full of flavour, my sister had the brochette de gambas et coquilles st jacques ( prawns and scallops kebabs) which was... More

This restaurant had a more modern feel than other places we went to in Belfort. The food was very nice and well priced along with a good wine list. It was a busy evening and the staff were very busy but still provided good service. The different dining areas were a nice touch allowing a pleasant evening despite the restaurant... More

Based on a friend's recommendation and reviews from this site, I decided to give this place a try for dinner. I was very pleased. Location: appropriately named, this restaurant is at the foot of the hill that houses the famous Lion de Bartholdi, Belfort's famous landmark. If you go up the Fbg. de France street, continue past the Mairie (city... More

In summer time it's possible to eat outside which is real nice. Staff and owner of the restaurant are very friendly and correct. Great place to go to with friends / family but... More

As me and my husband live near Belfort we have visited this restaurant a couple of times, eaten inside and outside on the terrace in the summer. The food is always of high quality and well presented. In summer eating outside on the terrace is great with a fantastic atmosphere, and in the cooler months the restaurant offers a more... More

We sat at a table next to the fountain. With a little breeze this can be problematic as the water splashes over the sides. Food was really good!

Au Pied du Lion is our favorite restaurant in Belfort. In the summer, you have the option of eating outside in a beautiful courtyard next to a fountain and in the cooler months the inside of the restaurant is laid out to feel cozy and personal. A truly wonderful atmosphere. The menu is amazing, and their wait staff is friendly... More

A nice place to stop for a beer. Nothing special but a good location with tables on the sidewalk. We order beer with bruschetta. The bruschetta was ok since the children were hungry but nothing special.
