“Go to Les Brevettes”
Review of Chez Leon

Chez Leon
Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 January 2017

Surly Matriarch - who couldn't be bothered to acknowledge us. we have been skinning for 15 years in St Foy and have been told to avoid this restaurant if you are not French.. curiosity got the better of us, I wish it hadn't.. waitress was very pleasant. Food was poor, 5 Euro cover charge, not sure what for. We will not be returning. Les Brevette or Marquise are a much more pleasant experience.

Sitting at the adjacent restaurant Les Brevettes, we would look at Chez Leon and wonder why it was seldom busy. Stopping to look at the menu when skiing past it seemed reasonable enough. So we gave it a try and the first thing we noticed was no credit or debit cards (not ideal when the only cashpoint in the town had run out and was not due to be topped up until 2 days later) and uniquely a €5 "supplement" per head. There were 10 of us so we were €50s down before ordering. The food was very basic but poorly cooked and presented. The server was pleasant enough but the owner sitting on the adjacent table (there was a photo of her on the cover of the menu) couldn't trouble herself to ask after us. I wonder if the locals on her table also paid €5 each supplement? Food arrived sporadically and the coffee was cold. Not a patch on our experience at Les Brevettes. As with all reviews, you have to try these places out for yourself but we'll not be returning.The food was also ridiculously expensive e.g. €15 for a crepe with ham and an egg.

Great place with lovely, friendly staff. Lasagne fab altho we had better tartiflette at other restaurants. Best frites in Ste Foy! Better book though because it quickly fills, nice weather or not.
