“Good food, lacks ambience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

The short menu in this resto comprises a nice mix of dishes, and it must be said that the food is excellent and good value, and comes in quite large portions.

There is a short and well-selected list of wines by the glass at reasonable prices (160 ml glasses at around 6€, which is larger than most restos). The main wine list is, however, very expensive with nothing under 30€ per bottle.The ambience is rather dull, and the service aspires to something which it doesn't quite achieve. Our waitress very annoyingly insisted on storing our bottle away from our table and pouring the wine for us.

Moderately expensive - not much change from 100€ for two courses with drinks.

“Relaxed fine dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2013

I ate here with a friend on a Monday night. Excellent service from the friendly staff. This is not fast food so expect to wait for your meal to be prepared. We enjoyed one of their featured white wines 'by the glass' and my friend, something of a wine buff, was impressed. My friend was not especially hungry and chose just a starter; the restaurant were quite happy with this and asked if she wanted some French fries with it. I had a very good Blanquette de Veau. I can also strongly recommend the coffee with five little chocolate cakes - they were really yummy!

“Excellent French restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2013

I ate at La Table de Christophe during a job trip in Valenciennes and I have to say this place is fantastic!!!
Great food (cheese selection, fois gras, terrine, angus steak with rosemary butter, chocolate mousse), great and warm atmosphere.
All is worth the price!!
If I ever come back to Valenciennes, this place will be my first choice for a dinner!!

“Excellent place for those hungry for honest traditional rural cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2011

Cosy atmosphere in a small restaurant. The owner is likely to give you personal attention and also rules the kitchen. Excellent preparation of basic recepies. Try carbonade flamande or the entre cote. Large portions. Service may be quite slow so don't go if in a hurry.
