We shared lovely tapas in a very comfortable environment and nice atmosphere. I loved that the tables are not too crooked and that leaves the different parties some intimacy. Good service too.

Joined friends for lunch today and we were excited to read the choices on the menu. When the food arrived,however we found it less than well prepared except for the hamburger and fries which were excellent. The duck confit was hot,skin crisp and meat juicy, but the cassoulet was stodgy,luke warm and lacked flavour. My friends daily special,a pasta linguini... More

We have eaten at this restaurant a few times, and unfortunately we were disappointed with with the service and quality of food. I hate to write bad reviews but it's better to be informed and maybe the owners will use it as constructive criticism and make some improvements. I would be willing to try again, as it is a very...

Went for lunch with friends. Nice old home with cosy atmosphere. Service and food were very good. We normally do not order appetizers as we are not big eaters. However, lunch portions were quite small for the price and we could have had an appetizer. We chose to have dessert which we normally do not order.

We have been to our neighbourhood restaurant quite a few times over the years. It is a bit pricey, but the Tapas menu is excellent. A very cozy evening out with friends. It is also wheelchair accessible which is very nice when I take my parents out.

Booked as an alternative to a more expensive restaurant down the street, the Rousseau House did not disappoint. Lovely ambience, nice menu (though not extensive), fair prices. We all enjoyed our meals: Arctic char was outstanding, chicken moist and flavourful, and the guys loved their steaks. Service was excellent. It's such a pleasure to have a conversation over dinner without... More

If we travel to Italy,it is hard to stay away from Le Mazinaie (near Montepulciano Stazione). We have spent many vacations at Le Manzinaie since our first visit there in 2002 when they opened the Agriturismo. In October, 2016,after a Mediteranion cruise, we spent a few days at Le Manzinaie. Our hosts were so welcoming despite all the work that... More
