You may need to book ahead as the restaurant is popular. There is a regular menu supplemented with seasonal dishes. A great destination for couples, families or friends. A good atmosphere.

The food was really good and the service was OK given the size of the group (12 ish). We had full three courses and everything was amazing - real level of theatre. It was busy so you might need to book even on a midweek.

Picked out this restaurant based on reviews and quite frankly, I was very pleased with most aspects of the experience. The staff/owners were very both friendly and welcoming and the restaurant, as well as the atmosphere was great. This is a very typical French bistro style restaurant (and food) with a variety of choices directly from the blackboard. No issues... More

Cosy French food under new management. We were there when place was full but were handled promptly and efficiently both at reservation and at dinner. Menu choice good but limited. .

This is a simple but very good restaurant, if you are a meat enthusiast. The choices are somewhat narrow, beef or beef, with the occasional piece of veal or lamb or chicken, but it guarantees quality. You can even have a look at what you are going to get before it is cooked. The room is simple but pleasant, and... More

We've been with a couple of friend yesterday evening at Bel Ami due to the recent change of owner. It's a great place to go. It's convivial, the meat "charolais" is just awesome. Service is really nice, made to make you feel like friends at home. Great carte with typical French cuisine (foie gras or blanquette). Happy to be back... More

The recently re-opened Bel Ami is a great improvement. The food is imaginative and delicious, although they sensibly offer some of the old favourites as well. There is a convivial atmosphere and even when it is very busy the service is good and you are made to feel very welcome. We've needed a restaurant in Le Vesinet like this for... More
