We visited as part of a large party of 10 on a Monday evening and were delighted with the food and wine. The restaurant had recently been redecorated and had a nice professional ambience. The fish was particularly good and I can recommend the Bouillabaisse - very authentic.
At the end of the meal we were still talking business and the waiter could not have made it more clear that he wanted us to go by loudly loading the dishwashed, clanking boxes and standing right behind our table willing us to leave.
It did not spoil and excellent meal with good food and company though!

We were staying at Domaine du Vadancourt just down the road on our return from camping. After an extensive period of googling/tripadvisoring I settled on this place for dinner after Reading the positive reviews.
First impressions as we walked in were great - what an eclectic mix of nautical themed objet. My fiancé immediately declared that she wanted to take all of it home with us. Think lots of brass, wood, telescopes etc. Quirky and cool.
It's a big restaurant actually, deceptively big. There are various rooms towards the rear, upstairs, a large external garden (looked beautiful but it was raining) along with the main dining room and bar area. Because of it's décor, it doesn't feel that large and still retains an intimate, romantic feel.
It was fairly quiet on the Wednesday evening we turned up, probably due to the time (about 7ish) and also it being a week night. When we arrived we were seated by the very helpful maître d who explained the concept of the plat du jour with the buffet starters/desserts and the choice of main courses.
We opted for the full three courses.
The starter buffet was superb - so good in fact I could have comfortably stuck with that (which is in fact, an option). You walk through the restaurant to the open kitchen and select what ever you want. Everything was beautifully prepared and freshly made. The smoked fish and boiled potato pots were particularly delicious, as was the homemade mayonnaise & aioli. Don't let the fact that it's called a buffet put you off - it really was extremely good.
For main course, I had the Steak Tartare. I always find this dish a solid benchmark of quality in a French restaurant. Here it was fine if not spectacular. It needed more seasoning and where was the egg yolk? My fiancé had the steak and declared it to be excellent. The piece I tried was indeed very good indeed. She definitely picked the right dish.
By the end of the main courses we were stuffed and decided not to bother with dessert. Instead choosing to repair to the chateau and tuck into a bottle of cotes du rhone.
In summary, well worth a visit and we will almost certainly be back at some stage on our travels through France.

Run by a french family serving terrible food with a very racist attitude against their customers. The place smells bad and the food looked like it was made 15 days before and smelt way out of date. When we complained to the Maitre D she gave us the rudest treatment we have ever experienced in all our travels in France.
This is possibly the most awful restaurant in St Quentin and could contend to be the worst in France too !
Will never visit again and people are strongly advised not to go near the place.

We went back to St Quentin just to visit this restaurant as we had enjoyed our previous visit, and unfortunately the last time we came to St Quentin we got to this restaurant on the Sunday afternoon to book it for the evening to be told they were shut on Sunday evenings! So we emailed them a few days in advance of our visit but received no reply. Upon arrival our hotel told us that the restaurant was now too special and they did not allow bookings via email and they don't have a website!
The hotel booked a table for us for 8pm and off we went - well the restaurant looks the same BUT our wonderful fun loving Maitre D' was not there instead there was a different Maitre D' who didn't speak English too well and consequently I ended up ordering a bottle of white wine instead of 2 glasses for us as aperitifs, which meant we then didn't have a bottle of red wine with our main courses!
When we visited previously there had been a large chalk board with their special menus plus a proper menu selection - now there was a small chalk board with a choice of about 2 starters and 2 main courses (both duck) and a menu proper of two set menus at different prices.
We both had scallops in a lobster bisque to start with - this was ok but not very hot and the scallops were very small. We then had ordered steaks - mine rare and my husband's medium rare - these were cooked perfectly but rather swamped in sauce and served with really rich potatoes in cream which made the meal too rich. So, so far we were disappointed as the meal we had there before was amazing - however, the next course was interesting - I ordered the tart tartine, and my husband ordered the cheese plate. When they came up both were huge so we decided to share them both! We were just about to start when up came the Maitre D' who poured liquid on my pudding and set it alight - I thought my top were going to go up in flames as the plate was very near me - the man opposite couldn't stop laughing! The cheese plate was gorgeous and we managed to get a glass of red wine with the cheese! The meal came to 122 Euros roughly £110 which was far too expensive for what we had.
So a disappointing return to this restaurant compared to our previous visit- there was nothing wrong with it but it had no atmosphere unlike before and we probably wouldn't go there again - shame

Restaurant parfait pour les baptêmes, communions et mariages. Grand choix parmi des menus de qualité qui satisferont tous vos invités. Présentation recherchée. Personnel stylé et attentionné. Facilités de stationnement. Cadre agréable. A recommander.

We have eaten at hundreds of these restaurants over the years. This is a good one. The positives: good bar food, reasonable prices, clean restaurant, friendly and accommodating staff(some speak English), menu available in English, close to some hotels. Bottom line: I would eat there again.

Was brought here with a tour group and very happy I was. Good enough to go back to the second night. Everyone seemed pretty happy with their grub and I thought the snails were as good as grubs can be. Probably due to being drowned in garlic butter, but good grubs!

Everyone can taste these dishes to the taste of sun, holiday, according to his desires, his appetite, his budget. It is a moment of sharing or being categorized all the generations, all the social origins as in the bars of Barcelona
Visited looking for a nice holiday meal out. They serve tapas in an interesting decor. Waiter was very attentive and sympathetic to our pigeon French. The beef was exquisite and the other dishes were well thought out. Chocolate fondant was the highlight apart from the...Morethank you.

We were stopping over in Saint-Quentin and this place was just around the corner from our hotel so we gave it a try. It is a clean, modern place and the staff were helpful, friendly and efficient though mostly they were stood around looking bored as it very empty for a Friday evening and devoid of any atmosphere. We both had brochettes and my salmon was pleasant enough though two of my partners chicken pieces were virtually uncooked in the middle which is an unacceptable error for which the waiter did apologise but nothing more.
Overall it just lacked a certain je ne sais quoi which is a shame.

We happened upon this restaurant last night and I'm glad we went in.
Simple menu. All in French but very friendly and welcoming host explained anything you were unsure of.
Had a beautiful smoked salmon, haddock and orange tartare to start which was served under a glass bell cover filled with smoke. Added a bit of flair.
Bavette and sautéed potatoes for main. Quality beef and cooked rare as requested. My brother had the octopus and rice, which when served the octopus was like butter it was so tender but because he's a slow eater, by the end had toughened up somewhat. He still very much enjoyed it.
Good house white too. Recommended if you are in the area.
