A nice, bistro-style place with plenty of tables. Good ambience, a nice mix of mainly young customers.

Portions are large - we started with a platter of cheese and charcuterie, followed by excellent main courses (the tarte with maroilles cheese was perfect!) and no space left for desserts.

An excellent and informative beer list at reasonable prices.

Total for the two of us including a couple of bottles of beer each was not much over 40 €.

Really, my best restaurant. For everything. The meals, the tastes, the atmosphere, the service. You can really spend a wonderful time in this restaurant by eating the marvelous food from overseas or trying a cocktail. A lovely, pleasant place. Each time I go there, I am surprised by what I am eating. Spicies, coconut, lentils... Sweet and salt at the same time... Very nice !

We wanted to try something different so plumbed for the African style. We eventually ordered after overcoming the language barrier. I had the smoked salmon in vinaigrette with salad for a starter. This was very nice and full of flavour. The main was a chicken dish with a citrus sauce, rice and baked banana. This was equally tasty.
The setting was like bamboo huts. The restaurant was Very clean with the kitchen in sight. They also had some water features so if you can’t get on with running water then this won’t be for you. When we’d finished the starter they came and took the plates but to our surprise they left the knife and fork. This is the only place I have ever eaten where this has happened! Not sure whether it was the food or something else but something upset my stomach within 30 minutes of leaving the restaurant (I won’t add to much detail). Maybe the sauce or something more suspect, I don’t know. I don’t think I’ll be going back though.
Not sure what this implies but a day before leaving Valenciennes they were ripping the insides of the restaurant out. Whether they’re moving or just making improvements, who knows.

The restaurant is really nice inside, usually quite calm and not too crowded during the week (not the weekend). The service is always warm and they will advise you if you hesitate on the food or the drink. Their rums are great (I recommend you the "Spiced Rum) and they have few wines from different countries. The foods are good but sometimes it happened that I have been disappointed by the way they cook the meat or the side dishes, that's why I've put 4 stars instead of 5. If you like "creole cuisine" or exotic foods, you should try this place during your stay in Valenciennes, alone or with a group of people you'll be always properly received.
