“Excellent Brasserie”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

This is just what it says it is - a brasserie, and a very large one at that. On a Friday night it was near enough full, which contributed to the buzzy atmosphere. It is clearly a very efficiently run, well established operation. The food came and went at the right pace, the service was good without being intrusive, and the surroundings were comfortable - although some of the Jules Verne themed paintings on the walls might not be to everyone's taste! As a brasserie, and not a Michelin starred restaurant, it sets very high standards. The fish soup was excellent, and the main course of a fricassee of kidneys and sweetbreads delicious, and served in a very generous portion. (If you visit the online menu from the UK, the automatic translation hilariously describes this dish as being served with 'mashed rat', when what it should be saying is that it comes with beautifully creamy mashed ratte potatoes). The very large serving of slow cooked lamb was also delicious. This is a terrific place for an enjoyable meal and convivial evening.

“just amazing”
Reviewed 18 January 2014

Everything about this restaurant was great. The food, wine and service was the best we had during the 6 week trip to France. The Chocolate ball dessert was amazing. Looking forward to dining there again, on our next trip to France

“A vibrant brasserie”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

Went to this brasserie with my family for dinner during Christmas break and our choice was right!
The brasserie was quite busy with local clientele in festive spirits, many of them were enjoying fruits de mer (seafood platter) and so were we. Sometimes some brasseries in France serve not "dead fresh" seafood platter but certainly they did. I ordered a local speciality "Ficelle picarde"(a kind of creamy gratin, crape in the middle) as starter, which was piping hot straight from the oven.It was delicious and nicely warmed me up. My family ordered monkfish cream source with risotto,they said it was delicious as well. As for cost performance, it's average but food quality is good, service is efficient, ambience is properly posh, so it was a positive dining experience here.

“Open for Sunday lunch!”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

This is an upmarket Bistro in the Parisian style. Well known to locals for really good quality French cuisine and impeccable traditional French waiters who are knowledgeable about the food they serve. The Bistro has a numerous and faithful clientele of local residents and is one of the very few decent restaurants to open for Sunday lunch in Amiens. When we dined there on on Sunday the Bistro was nearly full by 1215 and all the tables left were reserved. The waiters knew many of the customers and some of them seemed to have a regular table. All good signs. Service is fast unless you request something really special and waiters were very efficient but even found time to explain special features of some of the dishes to us. Try the Spanish acorns and chestnut fed porc from the famous semi wild black pigs the Pluma de porc. This is a Bistro so you might only have a main, or a starter and a main, many people were not having dessert and we did not try the dessert menu, the portions were quite generous and two courses as enough.

Reservation recommended. A must for a good meal in the traditional style but you may need to use your French, this is not a tourist trap!
