Came here to have breakfast of some sort. Two French men sat next to us after we were seated were spoken to & offered drinks before us which I thought was rude to start with. We saw the board outside offering brunch & the waiter didn’t have a clue what I was on about then told me no anyway. It has a “stuck up vibe” so I’m glad we didn’t eat here.

I visited this restaurant before getting a Eurostar train back from Paris (it is situated at the foot of the stairs that go up to the Eurostar check in area). As my wife and I had visited Paris to celebrate our second wedding anniversary, it was nice to be able to finish the trip with a very nice meal in an unexpected place (a train station). The restaurant itself is very modern looking - clean and spacious. And the food was really good! I had the sea bass (served with roasted chicory) with a side of vegetables (which came drenched in butter and tasted amazing). It is not cheap, but if you have the time when travelling, it is a nice place to grab a speedy but very tasty meal. I also saw lots of people just pop in for a drink and light snack.

I had three lunches there, before or after travelling. Staff is young, welcoming, well supervised and service quite efficient, even if you're catching a train. Plats du jour are tasty, portions not small. A la carte is more expensive, of course. I enjoyed the desserts I tried, there again portions were rather large. My only suggestion: stop putting salad or ruccola (roquette) on top of hot food for decoration, it goes limp and is only a silly fashion fad!

Well we walked all around trying desperately to find some to rest our weary legs for and hour before checking in for the euro star back London.
So we walked in and waited to be seated by the very polite young staff who were just lovely.
We only wanted a cuppa and a snack and we were honest about this the staff were still fantastic so we ordered our tea water and chips....
With no expectation to smash on an order of such things...
But they were still served with grace and WOW CHIPS THAT WERE CRISPY ON THE OUTSIDE FLUFFY INSIDE and hot for the duration of eating them great thank you nearly the best chops ever ....
