We visited this restaurant in April in the evening, the staff was friendly and the starters were fine, but for the main meal, our chips were soggy (they took them back and refried them but it did not help much) and I ordered mussels which...More

Visited here for a quick lunch with my family. Lovely atmosphere and friendly service - food was a bit bland. The muscles could have done with a tastier sauce. Lovely location, I would come back here, I would just order a different dish!More

Central restaurant with a great bistro atmosphere and helpful staff. The complementary tapenade and toast was a good start. Unfortunately we didn't enjoy the rest of the meal as much. I had the frogs legs which were a bit tasteless and greasy. I followed this...More

There isn't a lot in Valenciennes but this is a gem. We have a 3 course meal each and everything was lovely. We were lucky the weather as lovely and we could eat outside. Everything was as it should be.More
