I took my family for lunch, the daily menu was a nice surprise, I remember a perfectly cooked mean. The choices a la carte were also great and the service was really welcoming. The quality price ratio is very good, definitely recommend.

We stopped in Fontainebleau especially to eat here. The food was very well presented; beautiful and tasty - worth the 1 star Michelin. Unfortunately, it was marred by the bad service. The first server seemed stressed and irritated. He was quite young, and you got...More
