Downstairs dining area as well as upstairs. The lower area is like a Roman cellar and is atmospheric and pleasant. Friendly staff with a small but excellent menu. Not expensive and the House White was good. If you visit Arras pay them a call!

Decent place to eat in just off the main square in Arras. Simple bistro style restaurant with friendly staff and an uncomplicated menu. The four of us enjoyed the food and would recommend for an informal occasion like a quick visit to Arras to view the Christmas Market.

Good stop for lunch although wasn't busy on a Friday lunchtime in November, with just a few locals in for lunch (always a good sign). Extensive menu, with a few specials.

Ate here over the weekend (Nov 2016) with my wife whilst staying in a local hotel. We were very warmly greeted and shown to our table, downstairs in the cellar, which is lovely. Drinks order was taken promptly and we were then left to ourselves to settle and look at the menu. Our order was taken by a very polite... More

we had a wonderful meal there and had to restrain ourself from leaking the plates. the food was delicious and delicate, rich but not heavy. We congratulated the owner at the end of our meal and he informed me that the 16-years old apprentice had insisted on doing the cooking for the full services! quite an achievement considering some tables...

Main restaurant is located on lower ground floor so winding staircase to negotiate. Good sized room and very busy which is a good sign. Owner took our drink order and introduced waitress for...
