Le Zinc is a cosy bistro with a nice ambience which was full of locals when we were there. We had dinner there two nights (the second night not quite as good as the first). The first night I had a special of magret de canard with figs, which was delicious, and my husband had the duck confit, which was... More

We ordered 3 course menu and they were all really delicious. I would suggest rice pudding as dessert.

Very cosy type of restaurant nice wines and ground to earth type of food. I only took the main course from the recommendation list. Goose, goose liver, mashed potatoes and salad. It was very good. Maybe not the most healthy, but good. They have menus in English, but only smile in English. Not fine dining but good food and nice... More

This place has been on my radar for the last few years; it always seems to be busy yet their menu never stood out as anything alluring to entice me inside. Recently I went for lunch and had their plat du jour (€10.90) - a duo of grilled fish (salmon, and I think pike) served with a creamy plain risotto.... More

We had booked a table the night before and were exactly on time. We were given menus and then waited over twenty minutes before we were even asked what we wanted to drink. The service was not to the desirable level and the food was not brilliant.

We had high expectations with this restaurant. Most people were having the set course menus so we did the same...not so sure this was a great idea. I had the salad with goats cheese. Quite peppery/bitter salad mixture and strong cheese but nice. The terrine was ok. For our mains I had the steamed fish sitting on grated vegetable in... More

A tiny restaurant which gives great value for Money. I had the most lovely Onglets of veal and beef. Attentive service and reasonably priced wine! Hooray!!! Recommended by our taxi driver! What a good choice. Thank you
