Bistro in modern setting. Interior not really appealing, feels a bit " cold" . Food is ok, not great. Not a place to remember for me.

Gill is a great bistro. Everything was excellent fro the beginning to the end. We had a three course meal which comes for 30 euros. While some may consider this on the expensive side, we found it cheap given the high quality of the ingredients used and the chef's creativeness. For starters we had the mesclun salad (special) and a... More

We were en route to Deauville (reviews to follow) and wanted an overnight stop. We'd not been to Rouen for ages, so it seemed a good stop. Having checked into the Mercure Champ de Mars we were directed as to the short [10 minute] walk to the rue du Gros Horloge, which is the centre of the City. The magnificent... More

We'd looked at the big brother Gill earlier and decided that, as they don't do prix fixes for Saturday lunch, we'd leave it. Anyway, that same evening we stumbled across this place, the little brother bistro! It was just what we needed; expertly waited tables; lovely presentation; relaxed enough to have our preteen with us too. We had the menu... More

We came here on a Saturday night early (7.30 pm) and were glad we had as we got the last free table. At least 6 lots of hopefuls were turned away while we ate. The food was excellent, with a good choice on the menu, at least 6 starters/mains/ desserts and a choice of wines. We opted for the beauloais... More

The salmon tartare had a broken off plastic piece of something in it! ...and the medium rare fillet I ordered, arrived well done! Hostess was friendly enough but the food was very poor.

After having enjoyed our dinner at Restaurant Gill (the Michelin 2-star), we wanted to go to the bistro version, Gill Cote Bistro, right across the street from the place where Jeanne d'Arc met her horrific fate. The Bistro is crisp, modern, and informal, but the food is very good. I had a cucumber gazpacho that was cold, and delicious, followed... More

staff seemed a little disinterested when we turned up early but once going were attentive and helpful. The steak and fish were good but the chicken over-cooked.

The waiting staff here were perfectly pleasant, in a slightly anonymous type way, but the meal was a little disappointing. Both the steak I had and the pasta bake (macaroni) were under seasoned, and the bake itself didn't seem particularly fresh. There just didn't seem much love or honesty to the cooking, and in the end I was quite glad... More

Set in the center of Rouen, the restaurant offers really good dishes, the meat was very tender and properly cooked (the beef wad red inside, but so tender!), even the green beans were cooked the proper way (not too long! Still crisp). I had beef in a wine sauce, very delicate, my friends had an excellent appetizer made with tomatoes... More
