pretty reliable steak resto. You can get good deals here (including wine)! This is a chain restaurant in many cities. They are pretty good and you can get a loyalty card if you go there often

We frequently stopped in the restaurant close to the motorway and we appreciated it at the beginning but since the last year the quality of service and menu clearly decreased. This week end, we waited 30 minutes before beeing served. At the beginning the children menu proposed real beef meet for children, now they propose the classical nuggets, chopped steak... More

We stopped overnight at the Premier Class, Murigny, next door on the way back from Skiing. The Hippopotamus was an easy choice after a long drive. After looking at the menu, and reading about the care they take over their meat, we had high hope of a good quality staeak to end our ski holiday. Sadly the steak was all... More

We overnighted at the Premier Classe next door and this place was right next to the hotel. Given the convenience we thought we'd give it a try. We took one look at the menu and decided this was not the best choice for us to eat at. They had a 50€ steak on the menu!! Which wasn't that much more... More

We ate here because we'd just driven 1200km & were knackered & staying at the Premiere Classe next door. Wish we'd made the effort & gone somewhere else. The service was poor - slow, incorrect food order & to top it all the final bill was 30 euros too much. The food was way overpriced for the quality delivered, as... More

I like The Hippotamus steak house chain and have used this one several times while staying at the Ibis Budget (formerly Etap) on Parc Millesime outside Riems. I think these eateries are family and tourist friendly. They have menus in English and reasonably priced fixed menus (formulas) including drink. The Kids menu includes chicken nuggets and chips if you have... More

We arrived early evening and we were served by a very friendly gentleman who showed us to a lovely table. A lady then took our order and we were served very quickly with our drinks. Our food was good. Service was good. Definitely nothing to complain about. I would recommend a visit.

Ate here in the evening whilst staying overnight in the nearby Etap. It was fine, nothing wrong with it, just nothing special, but that was all we needed. Food was good, service was friendly, the place was clean and comfortable - I would like to rate it higher than Average, but the next rating is Very Good. I would say... More

The Hippopotamus was recommended to us by the hotel - goodness knows why!! The ribs were tasteless and undercooked (although the BBQ sauce was delicious) and the steak was tough with terrible pepper sauce (like wallpaper paste). The ciabatta rolls were like cricket balls and the main course salad was tired, but the Greek Salad starter was very good -... More
