When you enter don't look for colors. Brown is the color. Besides that, the food quality is high and the service very attentive, courteous and professional. Pity most of the Premier Plats are accompanied by sweets. It seems a recurring theme in many "nouvelle cuisine" restaurants. Not everybody appreciates a Marbé de Foie Gras de Canard with Chocolate Abinao and... More

Every time I go there with my girlfriend or family, we're never disappointed. The food (French cooking) is excellent, the service is quick and friendly (they always provide excellent advice for the wine). The ambience is classy but cosy.

We visited L'Ecu for a birthday meal early in the evening. The restaurant is smart and modern and the service is excellent. Three of us ordered the fois gras poelee and the filet boeuf and both were superb. The restaurant was virtually full and had a good atmosphere. Prices are reasonable given the high quality. We will return and would... More

Ambience was perfect, quite and calm. Food was very good, fresh vegetables and very good meat and wine. Price a little bit expansive, but you have to chose what you want to eat and drink.

I went to this restaurant for lunch and was most pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. The business lunch is great value for money. I strongly recommend this place. Make sure you book your table in advance.
