We ended up eating here 5 nights in a row, not just for the menu, perfectly cooked meats and vegetables, delicious desserts and brilliantly rapid service but mainly for our little one who eats only coated chicken and was consistently given first class treatment by superb staff. There was the odd difficulty attracting attention but overall, their bright smiles, bi-lingual... More

Willing to eat a juicy piece of meat while on the Disney area, this restaurant is for you. This is an american style BBQ restaurant where you will enjoy French T-bone steack with french fries, american ice creams and good wine. Easy access being at the entrance of the Val d'Europe mall.

This place is great. My son is autistic and very fussy about what he will eat. We chose here because they do chicken on the children's menu. When we ordered drinks they took my son's order and it was out within a few minutes which meant he was happy. Staff were great and bi-lingual. We've been twice in a row... More

We have been to Hippopotamus once before on out last visit. Service was not as good as it was before but it was acceptable. Food came out after fairly soon after we ordered and was pretty much cooked to what we wanted although one steak was slightly underdone to how it was ordered. Overall cannot complain with the meal.

Steak was perfect but fries and sides were cold and not great tasting. Very expensive for what it was. Not a good place for english speakers.

Terrible slow service and bread and food that tastes like it has been cooked in old used fat. Just avoid!!

Friendly staff, speedy service, friendly with children. Food was tasty enough but there wasn't an awful lot I actually fancied on the menu ( and I'm not a fussy eater). If you want basic food that's pretty standard fare, this is your place. Quite pricey

We recently visited Paris and stayed in a hotel near by this restaurant. We found it very hard during our stay to find a restaurant that spoke English or had a English menu except McDonald's. Hippopotamus displayed a French and English menu outside which was great! The waitress also spoke good English and took our order. We both were happy... More

Great food. Priced higher than comparable in UK but for what you got, delicious food, excellent service, good portions it was well worth it. Busy with locals. Would defo return. Only issue is with the toilets, absolutely spotless but the washing station (basins, mirrors, dryers etc) were shared and I didnt feel comfortable with this.
