We missed the human touch. Almost in everything! Let’s explain: Waiters are friendly but give you the idea that there us no time Everything goes in a hurry! We think the working spirit is so much orientated in perfection that the feeling is gone/the emotion...More

Great selection of lobster, oysters, langoustine, crab etc. Perfect end of holiday celebration meal of Royal Plateau. Service excellent and pleasant. No problem at all about booking with trip advisor 20% off food bill. Building amazing but then so is all of Nancy!

You must go to this restaurant at least once whilst in Nancy. The decor without even eating or drinking is what catches the eye. Absolutely like the restaurant The Train Bleu in Paris. Waiters dress the part and our waitress Charlotte was faultless in the...More

Last pix of Nancy on our walk about. Decided to have dinner at The Excelsior Hotel, a beautiful but rather large Art Nouveau Restaurant. Menu all in French & hardly any English spoken by Waiters. Service and food was great, with a few things “lost...More
