A buzzy little restaurant close to the town square with bags of atmosphere. No air conditioning inside which was a shame as being below street level, it made the temperature a little uncomfortable to dine in. Service at the start was a little slow and we waited over half an hour before our aperitif order was taken. However, things moved a much quicker after that and the food, apart from being reasonably priced, was excellent and accompanied by some tasty wines which were also affordable. The staff were friendly and were happy to speak English or French. A thoroughly, good night out!

Great quality in the dishes, but the service is often not so good.. waiting time for eat or drink something is more than we could expect.

Meat was very soft and good cooked.

We will come back and give it another chance.

We ate here on Sunday night, far enough away from the madding crowds to be a little bit special. The restaurant is in an elegant semi cellar, though we ate outside. The service was good and attentive and the food very well presented and delicious as well. We opted for the fixed menu SENSualite and were presented with Amus-Bouche all very tasty and well thought out. Starter wise the Howard Breton won it for me, though for the mains both the Turbot and Filet De Bouef were excellent, starters too. Well worth a try.

This magnificent restaurant is actually underrated as #15 in Rouen, It should be in the top of France. Really, everything was superior. We were first given 4 gourmand starters: a warm shrimp and cheese chowder-like blend; mini stuffed cheese pastry; a small piece of tuna and citrus on a thin rice cake; and a mini pastry filled with tuna;
Next, incredible homemade fois gras that melt in your mouth still with a pronounced goose liver flavor; certainly one of the best fois gras were have had in Paris and Rouen. Another appetizer was black ravioli stuffed with lobster and served with pieces of Maine lobster and a lobster bisque type sauce. Scrmptious! The final appetizer was thick slices of gravlax salmon that retained a bold salmon taste. All the starters and the appetizers were simply exceptional.
The three main courses were also superb. The lamb was as soft and tender still retaining it's lamb flavor in an excellent rich sauce. The filet of beef was also perfectly cooked, served with a bold bordelaise sauce! hot whipped potatoes and veggies. The last entree was chicken served in two separate courses each with its different vegetables and sauces. The first included a chicken meatball presented with an elongated chicken wrap. The second, a half slide-rule shaped cut roasted piece of chicken served with its own unique sauce. Exceptional!
Finally, 3 decadent, fresh desserts: a chocolate sphere filled with strawberries and sorbet; a roasted pear with chocolate and macroon-like cake; and lemon meringue...too much!
The restaurant is in an ancient celler. The chef is superb. Emilie, the perky ebullent hostess/server made the whole evening delightful. By the way, this special restaurant is ridiculously inexpensive. Clearly underrated. There cannot be 15 better restaurants ... maybe in France.

This restaurant is in a half cellar, old building, near the central square. It is not one of the typical tourist restaurant in that square. It pretends to be higher quality and this is certainly the case compared to the others in the main square. The dishes are very nicely presented and of high taste quality. We looked at some of the critical comments here before booking a table. "Cellar smell": this is correct, you will smell it upon entering the restaurant, but once you are seated, it is not very clear anymore. "Portions small": correct, but logical given this is a gourmet restaurant. They offer sufficient bread to the hungry.... "Staff not friendly": we thought the staff was somewhat "arrogant" but all in all it was a pleasant experience. One additional comment: the seating is very low. It provides for a special "lounge" atmosphere, but if you are larger than an average frenchman, you may find it challenging to sit there for a longer period of time. Having said all that, we thought it was a pleasurable experience.
