For once, I didn’t read the reviews - an expensive mistake! This self-styled Brasserie is more of a bistrot/café, with food to match - because it’s certainly not a “restaurant”, nor is it a proper Brasserie either. Indeed, it flatters to deceive, with its boutique...More

A cool, potentially rainy Monday evening so we decided to eat inside. Our choices were limited and we chose Hippeau. Not a good choice. Fried fish appetizer was soggy fish pieces in puréed green vegetables...not soup but not veggies either. Large salad was ok but...More

We sat outside at this busy restaurant. The food was very poor. Not well cooked or presented. Most people were eating gourmet burgers. I had steak which was 30% fat and gristle and my partner had Duck which was over cooked. The meals were served...More
