I admit it: I'm not interested in this "gourmet burger" trend that is sweeping the globe. It's ground beef, people, not a strip loin steak. And you shouldn't pay steak prices for a burger EVER. That's part of the problem here. It's not that the burger is poor--far from it. Rather, it's that for a similar price you can get higher quality food virtually anywhere in Arras.

As for the burger, it was quite nice. I had asked for medium and it came medium-rare, so beware that in Europe burgers get the same treatment as steaks (i.e. they are slightly underdone). The cheese was local Maroilles, which is lovely on a burger, and it needed very little adorning except the fresh veggies included since the cheese is deep and flavourful. A dessert of creme brulee was very disappointing, however, completely lacking the trademark crispiness on top. This leads me to believe they are torched in advance, and then the top briefly warmed again to simulate the effect.

(Aside: all desserts I had in Arras were poor. How is that possible, with any number of fantastic bakeries and pastry shops in the area, never mind their local talent for chocolate?! Partner up, restauranteurs, with those specialists and whip up some magic!)

As for service, I expected a burger place to run a little more efficiently than a typical French restaurant. It didn't. It was precisely 1.5 hours from the time I entered to the time I left, and that was for a two-course meal and a beer. The server was excellent, mind you, but when a burger takes as long as the local fine dining establishments, the pace needs to be picked up a bit.

So the food is fine, and will satisfy a burger craving. Just don't look at your watch or the bill, or you may wish you'd gone somewhere else.

We visited this place because of the rave reviews on TripAdvisor. Consequently, we were slightly disappointed. Don't get us wrong. The place was clean, the food was wholesome and plentiful and the service was good. It just didn't deliver the "best burger in the world" experience others have reported.

It was just what we wanted and delivered and we left feeling full and happy. So, definitely worth a visit if you're after high-quality fast food in a clean and pleasant environment.

Blimey it rained on arrival in Arras just as the French were losing in the World Cup! Ho hum, we got knocked out much earlier..

Anyway the restaurant, it was a Friday night and was hot and steamy and a little wet after the quick downpour however the restaurant which looked quite small at first expanded somewhat inside. We decided just to have a main course and a nice of of red, St Joseph at €27. I had carbonnade flamande whilst the good lady wife had the cheeseburger - we both thought this was excellent.

Both dishes were €14 each and so a cheap date was had!

Certain to return

There are times when all you want is a burger...and there are times you'll have been disappointed. Worry not! This is simply the best burger you'll ever eat. If you don't want the faff of bacon, eggs, cheese and whatever, abandone the bun and just have the steak hache. It is what it says, chopped steak ( and nb it's VBF...traceable good quality French beef) served with decent chips and a little salad garnish and cooked how you like it. Great food, friendly service, nice atmosphere, good prices - main, three or four glasses, dessert around £20 a head. What's not to like? (Oh, and if your dining partner is not in burger mode this IS a brasserie. Whilst it seems to be 'repositioning' itself in the market there's still a decent range of alternatives.) Enjoy.
