We arrived at the restaurant early on a Tuesday evening without a reservation however space was found for us and we were made to feel very welcome. We started with the onion soup, which was superb but the highlight was the chateaubriand - truly wonderful. The atmosphere of the restaurant was just right, busy and vibrant, the service was excellent,... More

I was there with a group on business (10) so I may have been a tad critical of the slow service. The food is wonderful, staff knowledgeable and the cozy setting is just lovely. I wish my husband had been there :). When you make reservations, ask for the top floor, it's a little more roomy and you won't get... More

Yes, go here for dinner. You won't be disappointed. I love this restaurant. The inside is lovely, with exposed beams, in a very old building that takes you back in time. The food is lovely, and the service is really great.

A very nice smaller restaurant with very good food. We tryed the fillet de bouef and salmon and they were all cooked to perfection. The side order we took were also very tasteful, ratatouille, gratine and rice. Enjoyful service, but do not be in a hurrry, it is not the sort of place. It is simply a very nice place.

It was the only place near our hotel that was still serving dinner when we checked in at 10 pm, so for that they get extra points. The food was so-so... Not disappointing but not spectacular. We had the pate, shrimp in puff pastry, filet of beef, French onion soup and spinach salads among our group. There wasn't anything wrong... More

I was dining at this restaurant for the 2nd time within the past 6 months. This restaurant offers a very good, tasty menu at a reasonable price, very good taste and friendly service in a very cosy atmosphere. I will certainly go there again!

This was right opposite our hotel so we booked a table for 20H00 and were rather surprised to see a queue outside at 19h00 when we walked passed later on to go for a drink. Restaurant is small and cosy with a very good menu. Our food was excellent. One problem is that I think the kitchens are too small... More

We visited this restaurant on my husbands birthday in December. It is a beautifully quaint French restaurant, tucked away in a quite street in Nuremberg. Inside, there are many levels and lots of different areas to eat, including private tables or more open plan settings looking over the street. The menu was based around seafood and the wine list had... More

We spotted this restaurant while walking back to our hotel and decided to reserve a table for later in the evening. Our table was downstairs and the atmosphere was welcoming and cosy. The menu offered plenty of choice of reasonably priced French dishes. The chestnut soup, venison and steak with pepper sauce were all very good. On the evening we... More
