The chef is also the host, cashier, person who opens the wine and takes the orders, go figure. There were a few other helpers but they seemed unsure of their role and service was not as smooth as it could have been.


The wine that was suggested to us since we were not familiar with many on the list was not good, but we sipped it anyway, just to get on with the evening. The chef seemed rushed and not willing to listen to what we were looking for in a wine, and seemed annoyed we could not read the menu in French ( we are not French).


The rack of lamb was not a rack but some pieces of lamb on a plate, many pieces were undercooked and tough to chew, other pieces were well done. The sea bass was bland, with a gravy like sauce that was pasty with undercooked peas on the side.


The desserts did look good but after 2 and 1/2 hours for a simple salad and entree we did not want to wait.


The open fireplace where some dishes were cooked was nice to look at and a plus to the evening.

Our best meal in France. Located in a 100 yr old building the owner and chef does much of cooking on the large open fireplace in the main dining room. Great calvados based cocktails. Fun amuse bouche. Regional cuisine. Awesome cheese plate and desserts. The apple ice sorbet and calvados to cleanse the palate was a great touch. The chef-owner came by to chat with the family. And he went out of his way to provide a kid friendly entree for my son. A definite hit!

We had a delightful meal at Au Pied des Marais last night. The restaurant kindly held our reservation when we were late due to traffic. The star of the evening was the owner Thierry who very kindly translated and guided us through the menu. We were the last table to leave and asked for a taxi to be called, none were available, and so amazingly Thierry offered to drive us back to our hotel. You would not be disappointed trying this restaurant with its locally sourced ingredients and great service.

We had a fantastic meal - service was great and the chef took the time to translate everything on the menu for us. Atmosphere is relaxed and very cosy with a huge, open fire where the chef cooks the meat

The foie gras for entree was one of the best we have had and the chateaubriand was perfectly cooked. We would definitely recommend this restaurant

Great restaurant and will be back soon. Downside of giving a complimentary review is that I might struggle to book in future!

The decor is bland, nothing special ( apart from the fireplace which is lovely), service is friendly and efficient, the food is nice( the little nibbles are very tasty) but not excellent and certainly doesn't justify the extortionate prices charged !

Food was exquisite typical French cuisine, the wine menu was exceptional. The chef was happy to explain the menu in English and watching the chef cook the food on the open fire added to the ambience of the restuarunt.
