    Always nice to have seasonal menu and when it is prepared by the chef like in Le Philanthrope, you are going to have an amazing meal. The vension and the scallops we had were delicious. Plenty of options for great cocktails and wines, that go well with the rich flavours of your dish. Also you can expect a friendly staff and nice atmosphere in the restaurant. Excellent spot for a night out!

    Very good restaurant - dishes are almost of gastronomic (one star Michelin) quality and with the discounts offered a great deal. Highly recommended if you are looking for refined French style food.

    They followed the COVID restrictions perfectly. This was the restaurant I wanted to visit as soon as lockdown ended and was not disappointed. The wine pairings were sublime, and the food and service were amazing.

    They took so long in between the dishes. It took 1.40 hours to have the main course, I don’t know if they’re short of personal by the moment. But food amazing.

    Excellent à la carte menu, but some in the group were let down by mediocre plat du jour. Service and setting were both at the high standard you would expect.

    Great ambiance, the food is solid but not exceptional. There are some hits and misses, my foie gras was delicious but the wild boar terrine was quite chewy/tough (and in a way beyond what I would justify as acceptable for game meats). Very nice wines by the glass let you mix and match for different entrees/plats. Service feels a bit aloof, it took awhile to get menus, clear plates, refill glasses etc.

    The only thing I have to remark is waiting times. We had to wait quite some time with dirty dishes on the table before they were cleared out.
