Reviews of interest

Isabelle Legeron (2014) “…crowded, jovial joint. The extensive list is entirely natural, with bottles bought directly from growers, and by-the-glass options are written up on old mirrors around the place.”

Bruno Verjus (2011) “Quelques betteraves croquantes assaisonnée de Gouda, des poireaux de fourneaux pas blaireaux…Et toujours, le meilleur spot pour prendre un verre le soir.”

Chroniques du Plaisir (2010) “Mais la surprise est dans l’assiette. On vous y sert une cuisine de produits, peu sophistiquée mais respectueuse, maligne et rigoureusement sélectionnée…D’autant plus que le liquide a du répondant (superbe Macon-Villages Domaine Valette frais et parfumé).”

Meg Zimbeck (2010) “…plates of food that look simple, are made with foodie approved ingredients (Thiebault veggies), and taste a little like love.”

Barbra Austin (2010) “A bargain prix-fix lunch gives way to a tapas-style dinner…white asparagus swimming in piquant olive oil; a burrata that could barely contain itself; beets with cod liver…and a plate of sweetbreads…”

John Talbott (2010) “…a real throwback bar/cafe…Incredibly good products, cooked well and simply – with no bullshit, at reasonable prices.”

Bruno Verjus (2010) “Petit café comptoir bénéficiant d’une agréable terrasse…la liste des vins nature couvre une vigneronne géographie du bon goût…Quelques tapas et autres pintxos … “

  1. We simply LOVE Aux Deux Amis. The food and wine are good, and more than reasonably priced. With friendly service and a buzzing atmosphere, this is the local we wish we had.

  2. I used to live next door, five years ago, and at that time the only customers were toothless obese alcoholics, drunk at 10am.

    Funny how French youth gravitates to this sort of ex-down and out establishment (Chez Jeannette was much the same before it was taken over).

    Perhaps the new team needs a bit of time to find its feet?

  3. While the food looked good and the wine was very good, I was greatly disappointed by Aux Deux Amis. We went on a Saturday evening with a reservation, didn’t get seated until one hour later, and then were told that we had to order in the next ten minutes because the kitchen was closing. The waiter forgot half of our order, the kitchen closed, and we ended up with a plate of charcuterie and two straight-from-the-freezer empanadas (which were then sent back to the kitchen, reheated in a microwave, and brought back to our table a pile of mush) with wine for €60. Very, very disappointed because it seems to be a popular, friendly place with nice small plates and high quality ingredients. Not sure if we will go again. If we do, it will definitely be early during the week. Reservations do not help at this place.
