Place pretty packed on weekends, food good, staff pleasant. Highly recommend snails from the starters and tuna steak as a main. Book in advance!

Last week me and my husband had one of the best dinners ever! Tuna steak in Balzac so amazing, and pancakes with orange liqueur to die for! Our server was very kind, helpful and beautiful, I don't remember her name but she had long curly hair. Great experience, great service:)

Nice place with interesting atmosphere. Located in the heart of the city but when you have dinner you feel very privat. Tasty food and vine! Recommend!

Administrator offered to take place exactly near doors (entrance) while there was some tables free. After we ordered drinks and food. One of us ordered Aperol Spritz. Everyone got drinks,... More

Nice food and good restaurant but quiet. We were there on a Thursday evening and there was only one other table of five.

Lovely shabby chic looking restaurant. I spotted this on trip advisor and booked us in. We had a fantastic meal and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others. A good range of dishes and nice wines too. I particularly liked a rabbit and mustard sauce dish I tried. Great place

Thank andywardi3iskk
