We came upon this restaurant quite by chance. It was full; always a good sign! It was true French food and cooked perfectly. Excellent food and a great atmosphere. We watched the chefs working in kitchen and they were non-stop. Would highly recommend.

We had the pleasure of dining here and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for tasty authentic French meals in a cosy homely setting. We had a traditional meal of savoury crepes accompanied by Breton cider and followed by dessert crepes - all absolutely delicious. The restaurant had a full house but the servers did a good job of...

Excellent crêpes, fantastic specialties, great service. I had the fermière crêpe with bacon and my husband had the lamb ravioli special. We both cleaned our plates. My husband then had the crêpe martiniquaise with banana and coconut and chocolate sauce; I had the Frangelico coffee. Both were fabulous. Service was friendly. She was a little slammed, but we were in... More

Very authentic French feel, with great service, wonderful food, and a cozy atmosphere. The menu is very French, with a good choice of Cidre and Calvados; and the food has a rustic heart warming feel.

We were very much looking forward to dining there and we found the food very good. The service however was a bit of a let down. First we had to ask twice to get the wine we had ordered. But most strangely we had onion soup and asked for bread to be had with the soup, and we were told... More

Le garde-manger is situated at the top end, old section of Queen St, which is perfect for this delightful bistro/ brassiere. At night the warm, low lighting and cafe style settings carry you away to genuine home style French restaurant. All dishes are delightful and the wine list very sensible. The key to this wonderful little gem is the fantastic... More

Our hôtel happened to be opposite Le Garde-Manger, an evidently and deservedly, popular restaurant in an attractive terrace of more "local" — Chinese, Thai &c — places to eat. We ate there twice, for a light supper when they were very busy, and could perhaps have used the table more profitably, and more quietly for lunch. As to ambience, service... More

A very welcoming "French Cafe" Style Restaurant, complete with red and white checked tablecloths. Excellent service from the young French waitresses. We had the table-dote menu, as you would in France, which was onion soup for us both, followed by beef bourgeois for my wife and coq au vin for me. All of which was plentiful and of excellent quality.... More
