Went looking for L'hortellus, but it was closed for Christmas holidays. (TripAdvisor said it was open, but hey). Had teen and young one with us, -2 and dark, so no ambling about for a convenient alternative. Happened upon this place and it looked ok, lots of middle aged eaters, young couples and a nice vibe. Better than the bars either... More

First of all, this is not the cheapest place to eat in Amiens. Thanks to the crashing £, this has become a little expensive. On the upside, food is perfect, beer is also perfect and the service level could not be better.

Popped across for lunch whilst my clients were eating on the more popular North bank of the Somme! Quick and polite service, meal was served quickly, nice and hot and well cooked and seasoned, I got bread and water without having to ask for it! I took the formulae du jour ar 13€ for two courses, excellent value, will return!

We were searching for somewhere to eat on a Thursday evening in Amiens, we called in at the Retroviseur and were disappointed to learn that he was not serving food. So we asked for some advice and decided to have a beer. The owner came out and asked if we wanted a steak, so we agreed and in a short... More

We ate inside here on a cool, damp night in April. Staff very friendly and patient as we practiced our poor French on them. Enjoyed very well cooked reasonably priced local cuisine. Inside it is very relaxed, informal, and could have been the origin of French shabby chic!

Costs, S. 7euro , Main 16 euro D. 6 euro and all classic choices have been well worth the cost. Staff are always helpful.... More

Came with large group. This is a casual bar/restaurant with helpful staff. Can sit inside or outside - by the time we left the large outside area was packed tight (even on a cool) on a Friday evening. Wide range of beers, and staff helpfully explain the differences. I had salmon appetizer, followed by their lamb specialty (slow cooked) and... More

A good choice of classic French meals. The quality is excellent and reasonable cost. I had the slow cooked (7 hours) lamb and it was fantastic. Located in the lively riverside area of Amiens close to the cathedral.

We stopped in here for a quick beer, before deciding where to eat. The waitress happily explained the differences between the choice of draught beers they had available. We sat outside by the door, and her and the waiter happily chatted away to us in between serving other customers. It felt like we had been coming here for years. We... More

This restaurant is close to the river in St Lieu area. There is an outside eating/drinking area which is extremely popular for both lunch and dinner. The latter is available at 7pm. I have visited several times, the waiters/waitresses are so friendly and helpful, in particular Celine who went to great lengths to explain the menu. There is a good... More
