“unprofessional service, mediocre food”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

this hotel restaurant has a good location opposite the beautiful theatre and very near the palace and so can probably count on putting bums on seats without having to worry about getting repeat visits. And this shows in the food, service and wine list, all of which were shoddy. The patronne boasted that the patron was a butcher but the meat we had (onglet and entrecôte) was ordinary. On the curiously short wine list with no bargains we chose a Mâcon rouge (usually a poor choice but this from a normally reputable merchant, Regnard); the vintage indicated on our list was 2008 but when the wine arrived it was a 2012; the waitress denied that I had read otherwise and left it at that! So, I am a liar, or visually impaired!! The wine was rustic to say the least. And this, from a restaurant named after the god of wine.

“Best meal in France”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

Really enjoyed our meal - we had been travelling throughout France, with 6 weeks in Paris, and finding this restaurant and the the delicious meal was a real treat. Coming from Canada I find most of the French food substandard unless you want to spend a pile of money. This meal starting with foie gras then a tender beef steak with vegetables, and an amazing fruit dessert turned out to be the best meal of our holiday.

“Appalling service if you don't speak perfect French”
Reviewed 23 May 2012

Very good food marred by contemptuous service if your french is not perfect. After 5 trips to France I know this service is not usual, but beware if you speak anything other than French.
