This restaurant is super! 3 of us ate here before horse racing in Vichy. 2 of us had the set meal and the other a la carte. It was absolutely beautiful. Very reasonably price too and the service was excellent. Will return when I'm in Vichy again!

Tried here because of the Trip Advisor review and our youngest daughter (16) wanted snails! We were not disappointed, the atmosphere was friendly and informal - despite the plush surroundings. The three of us ate from the 32 euros menu. Snails for starters (excellent). For main course steaks that were plump and juicy, and King Prawn Paella (also plump and... More

The food did not live up to it's Michelin rating, unfortunately. In spite of this, it was a very enjoyable evening.

In a very warm environment , you will enjoy delicious French traditional food . You can park your car at the train station parking which is very close from the restaurant. Of course, you can order the famous whales but you have other very delicious dishes. Bon appettit!

We had 4 nights in the hotel, very comfortable and staff very friendly. We ate in the restaurant twice (only because it was shut Sunday and Monday evenings) otherwise we'd have eaten then too. Food delicious and you don't have to have snails. Good wines and not too expensive, service excellent - it took me back 30 years when all... More

This is one of the most popular and attractive restaurants in Vichy. It is famous not only because of the snail themed décor but also because of the number of snail-based dishes on the menu. However, if you are not a lover of the snail, it matters not! I had a delicious dish of aiguilles de canard in a wonderful... More

We have been here about 5 times and go back each time for the quality of the food. They have different menu's for small and big eaters; We have tried several and always were satisfied. Desserts are very well too.

On our way from the train station to downtown we stopped by l'Escargot qui tette for a one dish quick fix. The welcome was warm and friendly by a well trained staff. As we had an imperative time constraint of lunch being finished in 45 minutes, service was expedited as expected. The confit de canard and gratin dauphinois were correct.... More

Classic French restaurant in the heart of Vichy, a lovely small city in Auvergne in central France. Got a very nice window table without reservations. Impeccable and knowledgeable service. Enjoyed the 4-course 31 Euro fixed menu and thoroughly enjoyed every course. The wine recommendation was spot on, Can highly recommend it, not just because of its tastefully prepared dishes but...
