We ate here on a Monday night when most places are either closed or half empty, this restaurant though was absolutely packed and everyone seemed to be having a great time. We happened to be lucky as a table became free just as we arrived and overall we really enjoyed the night even though the food itself was not particularly... More

Blustery day in Poitiers with lunch at la Serrurie. Been here many times before as I love the food and the surroundings. We 3 friends all live in France but when we saw Fish and chips a la Brighton, that was it! It felt totally wrong ordering english food in a french resto but we just hankered after fish and... More

Ate here as it is quite local for us and in the past food has been reasonable. My husbands food was OK though a little like warm after a long wait. My ribs which were supposed to be 'cajun style' were 80 percent fat. Complained to the waitress who was very pleasant in passing but decided to take this up... More

Bottom line: - Not inspiring food ; - Very poor service! - Relatively, to a restaurant, nice draft beer selection On Monday evening, many of the restaurants will close, after the weekend efforts. As La Serrurerie was near our hotel, we have decided to give it a try. As we were the early birds (~18:00), the restaurant was quite empty.... More

Great food, lovely atmosphere, wonderful service and good prices too. We spent a great evening here and all enjoyed it. Not always easy with 16 and 12 year old kids and my wife and I! Had steak, burgers (proper ones!) and chicken so a bit of everything and all delicious and would 100% recommend it.

We ate here after passing by and seeing how busy it was compared to other nearby restaurants. We enjoyed a lovely meal (my husband said it was one of the best burgers he has ever had), and the service was wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble and the meals arrived exactly as requested (kids are fussy!!!!). I would highly recommend.... More

Actually, my wife and I have been enjoying coffee and drinks here on a regular basis for the past year. The café is located in the heart of the city on a pedestrian route which runs off the main square close to HSBC. It offers a very warm welcome and the option to sit indoors or outside. The interior is... More

In central Poitiers for lunch, I ordered a chicken cesar salad, and thought even by USA standards, it was below par. But, it's a popular place as I saw many well-dressed local government employees eating there. At the next table I espied a young lady who ordered a cheese burger: It looking like nothing to write home about.

Mid February, cold, damp and not a tourist to be seen. We dived in La Serrurerie for lunch. No reservation had been made, but they found us a table close to the front door, as the place was really crowded, a good sign as they were virtually all locals. We decided to go a la carte, though the plat du... More

I think you'd be better off with reservations. We didn't have any end ended up at the top of the stairs next to the washroom. It certainly wasn't as quaint as other parts of the restaurant. The service was good once it came. I'm a bit of a fish and chip snob but this time me wasn't very good. Chips... More
