This restaurant is fast paced. The waiters are buzy, very buzy. The English speaking restaurant manager was kind enough to take our order by herself. But not very attentive. The restaurant has been recently renovated, looks very nice but is more effective than charming. Food is quite OK, no complaints.

Really nice family diner. Classic French dishes with a modern informal super service. I'll go back there anytime.

Nice ambience with mainly local clientele. Plenty of meat dishes on offer (as the name suggests) but also a variety of other options. Friendly and attentive staff.

Great menu and excellent service, even changed our order at the last minute when we realised we had made a translation error!

Not sure why Bistrot du Bucher has such good reviews? We found the service to be surly and rushed to say the least. Mussels were strangely small and shrivelled in size and the Entrecote steak was bland with greasy potatoes. We assume the sauce served with the steak was Roquefort, simply by its blue/green colour, however neither of us could... More

We were on a 4 day trip to the area to take part in WW1 commemorations and our party totalled 53 people. After receiving a recommendation earlier in the day, around half the party turned up in two groups around 30 mins apart. We had no booking but we were very warmly welcomed and seated without any issue at all.... More
