“Worth seeking out”
Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

First visit in October 2013 for dinner and again in April 2014 for afternoon tea. Homely and quirky in a really nice way, feels more like eating at home than a restaurant, but in a really charming and inclusive way. Food is very good and really well done, it is the classic small menu but all done to high standard and quality. Really worth seeking out for dinner or afternoon tea in the sunshine.

“Third visit to this restaurant”
Reviewed 18 April 2013

Each time we visit Soissons we return to this restaurant. The atmosphere is excellent, with few tourists visiting. The food is basic but well presented and tasty. The staff are helpful and patient with school boy French. The art on the walls changes and is of interest in itself. An excellent lunch time restaurant.

“Family hospitality; gordon ramsey would be proud”
Reviewed 28 October 2012

This is a real genuine family run restaurant. There is a choice of 3 starters, 3 mains and 3 deserts. Approx €28 per head. The choice is simple but the quality very high - like Gordon tells you keep it simple and seasonal. The mother and daughter head of house were charming and the food was lovely ( 1 colleague rated it the best they had eaten in France) Rustic charm and very good food shame it is only open at the weekend at night

“Not a good fit if you're gluten-free”
Reviewed 18 July 2012

I take full responsibility for selecting a tea room for lunch when two of us don't eat gluten. Okay, so we ended up with an 88 Euro tab for four and left hungry. It's a lovely little spot near the cathedral with tables outside on nice days. The overflow crowd on the terrance must have taxed the kitchen because food took forever to come out. A guy at a table near us told the waiter he was almost out of time and had to eat immediately. They couldn't get his food out in time and he left about ten minutes later. Not a lot of English spoken...so bring your phrase book.
