Lovely authentic food, lovely atmosphere. we had the set menu which was very good value. Escargot was beautiful. We had steak in mushroom sauce with fries and caramelised rib with fries. Steak was tender, mushroom sauce was amazing and handmade French fries were fantastic, ribs were great! We had profiteroles for dessert but were so full we couldn't finish them!Best... More

We went here last saturday to have lunch and we were the only guests. Nice looking interior, friendly service and very clean restaurant. We took the menu of 26,00 euro which consisted of an entree - choise between either snails and a tarte tatin of chicon and a local cheese - which was very good. Then we had also a... More

Having sadly noted that our favourite restaurant in Laon had closed we were looking for others to try in the area. Coming across the Au Plaisir des Mets on Tripadvisor and reading the many positive comments, we booked for the Friday and Sunday evenings when we were staying for the nearby Golf Hotel whilst attending the Laon Classic Car event....

We booked on the strength of the reviews and four of us went for dinner on Sunday evening. The staff were friendly and welcoming and the chef wanted us to park our classic cars outside the main door. The restaurant is in a great location with off road parking, rustic and very well presented. We had a house carafe of... More

We choosed this restaurant because it was numer 3 in Laon or environment. Sorry you're wrong. This restaurant should be number 1. I never had a lamb as fantastic as here. My wife enjoyed her fish plate. And most of all we've enjoyed "l'accueil chaleureux".

Stopped on Boxing day night for a meal in this lovely restaurent. We phoned ahead and booked but it was very quiet. We were a group of five. Greeted warmly and nothing was too much trouble. Moules were delicious as was the steak and the children's steak hache.

Walked in without a reservation and although several tables stayed empty throughout our visit, a great show was made of laying a table in front of the bar away from the other guests (who were clearly all locals). When I say laying the table I use the term loosely. Whilst all the other tables were adorned with linen, nice glasses... More

We stopped in Laon last Friday night en route to the Alps. Going on the Trip advisor reviews we sought out this restaurant about 5 minutes drive from Laon. We hadn't book. When we arrived just after 7pm the place was empty except 2 ladies eating moules. I asked for a table for 3 and the Madame said it was... More

We stayed locally at Center Parcs and didn't want to fork out lots of euros for a rubbish meal. We had driven past this restaurant on the way and thought it looked nice. We weren't disappointed, the food was lovely. Great attention to detail from the snack with your apperitif, the amuse bouche and the delicious sauce on the steak... More
