Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were visiting the Abbaye Royale when we saw this restaurant. It was crowded (great sign) . The menu was varied, cheap, but the quality was amazing. Highly recommended!

Looking back at a previous review of mine in 2011, although had more visits but not reviewed, all I can say is it is still fabulous, if not better.. Again had a fabulous meal, beautiful delicious seasonal foods, exquisitely presented, and exceptional friendly and welcoming...service, the decor is very tasteful too. We explained several dietary issues, extreme allergies etc and the staff could not have been more helpful or concerned. We felt very reassured and enjoyed the superb meal to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary with friends in complete security. Totally fabulous lunch time...More

Been several times over the past few years, this visit during a very hot day at lunchtime as good as it gets. Great service, imaginative lunchtime menu, ingredients very well selected, and great value.

Absolutely delicious! Recommended to us by our air bnb host and it did not disappoint. We are firm favourites of France and French cuisine. The service was brilliant and the food gorgeous. We would definitely return if in the area.

Having been here before and very much enjoyed it, we were very disappointed by our recent visit. The main course (beef) was chewy/tough, the potatoes were bland & the asparagus stringy. Overall, the dish was very well presented but unfortunately lacked flavour. The scallops for...starter were lovely but the accompanying kidney beans were a mismatch. The restaurant was very busy with a good atmosphere but for the price of the menu it has also become more casual since our last visit (many customers in jeans, trainers & hoodies on a Sat night). Le Scorlion still has huge potential and the service was very good, but we just felt the chef had somehow lost their way. What once used to be a real treat now felt a bit like a school dinner.More

We have quite limited French and have tried different methods of booking (on line, popping in and phone). Each time was successful, the staff were helpful and patient. We ate from the Business menu, the food was delicious and very good value, the next lunch...-also on the Business menu but different choices - we had with family with everyone choosing something different, again all the dishes were well cooked and the quinoa vegetarian option was very inventive. Delightful front of house staff, the service was very attentive but not rushed, just right. Thank you Thomas and team for some really lovely lunches, see you again next year.More

The chef has imagination and flair and can really really cook well...everything was perfectly prepared and the flavour combinations were well thought out and imaginative. Plenty of happy suprises arrived between courses. At the end the happy surprise was the bill which was considerably smaller...than I was expecting for 2 people, 3 superb courses and a decent bottle of Cote de Bourg (75 Euros). I've paid a lot more for a lot less. The young waiting staff are well trained and efficient - though slightly panicked when the mad Brits turned up at 7pm for their table (no self respecting Frenchman eats at 7pm). Not sure what they can do to improve without charging twice the price!More

From beginning to end the food was excellent. The wine was chilled to perfection and the service was very good. Attentive waiters who knew their trade. For a lunchtime set menu, there was a choice of 4 desserts, 4 main courses and 3 desserts. The...wine was a little expensive but the taste made up for the cost. Overall a very good experience and we will certainly return very soon.More

We went for my birthday meal having heard great things from my boyfriend of previous family special occasions he'd spent there. I wasn't at all disappointed! Superb (& Covid friendly) atmosphere. Very attentive service. There was a limited menu due to Covid but still plenty...to choose from & although this is a bit more expensive than other restaurants in town, the staff bring extra, unexpected 'tasting' dishes in between courses so you very much feel like you are getting great service and that it is more of a treat. My boyfriend was perhaps a tiny bit disappointed with his main course but did admit he wasn't 100% sure what he was ordering. I was particularly wowed by their desserts! To die for! Would definitely go there again & highly recommend esp. for a special occasion. A little bit dearer than others but still very reasonable.More

This is not the first and won't be the last time we have visited this friendly restaurant. There is a limited lunch menu which has a choice of 2 starters, mains and dessert, usually fish and meat ..., clearly dessert isn't!! Dinner choice is a...larger a la carte menu and variations of set menu's ...menu affaire, menu degastation. Its very local and food is excellent, wine carte is offered on an iPad and there is a good range of vins and priced well. There is a covered outside area which is pleasant on sunny days and very popular!! Service is friendly and efficient, speaking and understanding the language a must. Highly recommended, and already looking forward to our next rendezvous.More
