We were there for dinner. A combo with meal and dessert. We eat Faux-File and Le Burger - both were very good and tasty. As dessert, we eat créme brulée and Mousse Chocolate - also perfect. I recommend.

It was a very cold evening, we were tired after sightseeing all day, so decided to pop into cosy looking Hippopotamus. Restaurant was full of diners which is always a good sign. When we sat down we noticed cutlery missing, one glass was very dirty,...More

We chose to do a set menu - reasonably priced at around 15 euros for two courses, and then chose a starter of escargot from outside the set menu. The escargot were tasty. The main and desert were relatively uninspiring but excellent value - particularly...More
