I've known this place since I was a kid and the family managed to keep it as good as it was over 4 generation. Lunch menu on the very reasonnable side. Traditional dishes, some of them with a twist. You cannot be disapointed if you want to experience the "vichy taste". Good cheese plateau. Not anything bad to be mentionned.

This restaurant is super! 3 of us ate here before horse racing in Vichy. 2 of us had the set meal and the other a la carte. It was absolutely beautiful. Very reasonably price too and the service was excellent. Will return when I'm in Vichy again!

Tried here because of the Trip Advisor review and our youngest daughter (16) wanted snails! We were not disappointed, the atmosphere was friendly and informal - despite the plush surroundings. The three of us ate from the 32 euros menu. Snails for starters (excellent). For main course steaks that were plump and juicy, and King Prawn Paella (also plump and... More

The food did not live up to it's Michelin rating, unfortunately. In spite of this, it was a very enjoyable evening.

In a very warm environment , you will enjoy delicious French traditional food . You can park your car at the train station parking which is very close from the restaurant. Of course, you can order the famous whales but you have other very delicious dishes. Bon appettit!

We had 4 nights in the hotel, very comfortable and staff very friendly. We ate in the restaurant twice (only because it was shut Sunday and Monday evenings) otherwise we'd have eaten then too. Food delicious and you don't have to have snails. Good wines and not too expensive, service excellent - it took me back 30 years when all... More

This is one of the most popular and attractive restaurants in Vichy. It is famous not only because of the snail themed décor but also because of the number of snail-based dishes on the menu. However, if you are not a lover of the snail, it matters not! I had a delicious dish of aiguilles de canard in a wonderful... More
