Our visit to Den Beer started well enough. The hostess found us a small table for 2, and though it was recently used, she came right away to clean it. The waiter came promptly and took our drinks order. We spent a while on the menu as many things were unfamiliar to us, but the waiter did not come by... More

We didn't book but the four of us managed to get a table Thursday evening. Ten minutes after it was packed. Waiter explained our menu and was very helpful. I recommend sharing the Chateau Briand. It was cooked to perfection and reasonably priced. Good selection of wines available. Busy local restaurant with good selection of food.

Went there just after 6 and for a "brasserie" it didn't served drinks only. They didn't told us when they gave us seats, only when we ordered only drinks. If we wanted to stay we should have ordered a meal. If you handel such a rule hang it in front of the door or make people aware of it.

Found this place by luck. Was very difficult to see from outside the popularity of the place. Once inside it was almost packed with customers. The food was excellent, well prepared to our individually choices, and served nicely and decorative. One star is lost du to the price of a bottle of water, which was charged at a price over... More
