Nestled in the middle of Chailly, Au Charbon is in many ways an ideal neighborhood joint: the service is very friendly, the menu is varied and the setting and prices are unpretentious. Lunch deals are very fair and beat almost any alternative in the area....More

With very friendly and fast service, clean, not stuffy, fresh food, this place serves good every day cooking. Not pretentious nor over priced, it appeals to a varied clientele including workers, bankers, and old timers. Great for families, dates, or business.... Or even alone.

Nice little neighbourhood restaurant. Pizzas and pastas are great, price/quality ratio is excellent. Meatwise I recommend the "tagliata", awesome piece of beef, sliced and placed on a bed of salad dressed with Italian garnishes. Very friendly staff.
