Enjoyed an excellent lunch at this restaurant after visiting the nearby Château of Fontainebleau. Every dish we tried was great - fish, chips, salad, vegetables, escargot, and egg. The staff were friendly and helpful, explaining dishes in English. Highly recommended.

We had a business dinner at this restaurant. Small and cozy it is quite hidden but worth going there to enjoy a very good quality French meal. Not cheap but you don't feel overpaying.

Wonderfully quaint little restaurant in Fontainebleau. Food was excellent and prices were extremely reasonable. Wife had scallops and I had pork loin in a pastry shell. Great lunch destination in a beautiful area.

After eating across the street (at the Italian Primo Baccio, also recommended!) the night before, we wanted something French instead. A small table just inside the restaurant, good wine selection and very tasty food. My colleague enjoyed the egg foi gras while I had the scrumptious scallops. Highly recommended!

Baked eggs with foie gras, snails with cream, grilled whole fish... unpretentious, wholesomely yummy. Much better than the other higher rating place!

We had a simple and yet excellent dinner here. The food was fresh, prepared perfectly. Each bite was a treat. Our server was sweet and very accomodating, speaking French slowly for me (although she spoke perfect English) so that I could practice my French. We had a most delightful evening! I highly recommend it.
