Service was really good and friendly. The location is a bit poor as it is in downtown Santiago and the sidewalks were dirty and over crowed with cyclists riding on the sidewalk, but overall this kind of french pub has a great appetizers and excellent home made beer.

While we have been very disappointed in our last visits to the other said "French" restaurants in Providencia, we went out of the Normandie with the same satisfaction as on our two previous visits.
"Canard à l'orange", "lapin à la moutarde", big portions, both well-done; a quite large piece of an excellent "moelleux au chocolat" and cups of a simple but quite correct Carmenere
The Normandie did not changed.
It is not a gastronomic place and I will qualify it as a "serious" one.
What is offered here is good cooking with a good service in the old-fashioned atmosphere of a traditional bistrot in Paris or many much smaller towns in France.. Really a piece of France in Santiago.
Prices are as "serious" as the overall service and you pay really for what you eat and drink and not for the reputation of the place :-)
We will be back as we think that the Normandie stays the only place where we really feel France, either in our plate or looking at the black and white photos of Piaf, Gabin, Fernandel, Montand and many others, on the walls.

Went in on Monday in early November with a colleague and it was a really hot night. By the time we left the place was completely full.
The draught beer is excellent and we shared a large mixed platter rather than a full meal to soak up the beer.
Total bill $30,000 (about UK£36) is good value for what we eat and drank.

This is a fun place, service is very nice and friendly.

The food is good, but nothing really special from what we tried. the terrasse is quite noisy due to traffic nearby.

Quite french though and a lot of people attend. So a good quality place but nothing outstanding

I have eaten there many times and love the food and the atmosphere. This time, I found it very crowded and it took ages to get my bill paid. But I still love it. It is on a street with a lot of tawdry buildings and some fast food, but worth the effort to get to.
