Great atmosphere, food was delicious but drinks quite expensive. We asked for a carafe of wine, not on the menu but plenty of people drinking it, €13 per 500ml. Waiters were friendly and helpful, finding out which produ ts were completely gluten free for us.

This is an above average 'brasserie' kind of place, serving French food. The food is very good, the 'suggestions du jour' a bit more finer than the basic steak and fries food you sometimes find in 'brasseries', though moderately priced. Although restaurant is located on a 'place', it is one with no cars so very quiet.

On our first evening in Orléans we chose Au Bon Marché to dine in. In the centre of the historic city, we enjoyed a typical French meal of snails, steak and cod and Affligem blonde pression. Our meals were well cooked & presented & the service was attentive; being a Monday night there were only a few other diners. Summery... More

It isn't the standard fare as available in all the other restaurants. And the bruschetta is more of a cheese on toast than the real thing. But the service was good, the food was OK and it was just what we needed after a long drive.

We ate at this restaurant last night (Sun). We were looking forward to it, having had a long drive up from Carcassonne. we had taken the time to look around Orlean and thought this looked delightful. We'd googled trip advisor and it had 3.5 stars - we thought oh well it must have been a few bad reviews... So where... More

Maybe it was because we were in a group or maybe it was clear we planned to spend money for a nice meal during a slow period just before the holidays, but whatever the case, the staff at Au Bon Marche made our group feel so welcome for dinner the first night we ate there that we brought an even...

We stopped by for lunch in January and had a wonderful meal! We do not speak French and were pleased when the waiter realized this and gave us and English menu. The food was fresh and delicious! My meal was great and loved the dessert!

The appearance of the restaurant and its interior is immediately appealing, particularly by comparison with some of the neighbouring establishments. We arrived early, at the same time as a very large party who were seated at the back of the restaurant, safely away from our table nearer the entrance. It wasn't long before the place filled up so we were... More
