In a city where any "cafe" calls itself a brasserie, the Brasserie Massena is only one of a few deserving its title.

There, we had traditional French family fare, such as frog legs, whitebait, alsacian choucroute and traditional desserts.

Went for a pizza. What a horrible he one! Crispy bread from stone oven. Spicy sausage was great
Try the tiramisu for dessert. It is creamy and tasty

The food was precooked hours ago. The staff was not so friendly since we visited the place little late for dinner...
The prices are very high for the quality offered...

Came for a meal with my family whilst on holiday. The meal started very well, the waiters were prompt and friendly and our main courses were absolutely delicious. Steaks were tasty and cooked perfectly and the pizza was lovely. However unfortunately from then it went downhill...
One of the waiters spilt a full glass of wine over my dads lap and on my sister's coat and jeans as well. Understandably this was an accident, and accidents happen. From that point onwards we didn't receive even an apology, and had to get a handful of napkins ourselves to clean the table and our clothing. Nobody acknowledged the accident or offered any assistance in the cleaning up. Subsequently we then didn't receive an offer of a dessert menu or any coffees etc. after our mains. The feeling was that the waiters were keen to avoid our table by means of 'sweeping it under the carpet'. Such a shame as we were all looking forward to dessert and all enjoyed our main courses. Had the accident been acknowledged and the service continued the way it had started I would recommend this restaurant. As it stands, the service at the end of the night let the whole evening down and I would suggest other restaurants with equally as good food but much better service.
