The french decor and great service. The owner was very friendly and wanted to know where we were all from, most others seemed like locals. There were a huge number of choices on the menu, and the service was with a smile.
Favorite Dish: Cotelettes d'agneau et pommes de terre dauphinois, absolutely fab and succulent. Washed down with a glass of pommery brut, champagne. When you are in the region, you can't resist a glass. For 18 euros you can have a 3 course meal , the Formule Brasserie. I was in love with the place after lunch!
I had the pear slices with chocolate icecream as dessert, soooooooooo yummy!
Place Drouet d'Erlon is not far from the cathedral and the railway station and in the center town. If your are hungry while visiting , the Grand Cafe is a good place - if a bit noisy - to have lunch.
The deco is a traditional french cafe/brasserie and the house specialities are mussels seafood. They also have a large choice of pastas.
Favorite Dish: I had moules marinieres and fries (i know, not typical from Reims) and my husband lasagnes de saumon au beurre blanc, both were excellent.
Best service! Nice restaurant. A must when in Reims. Not too expensive.
Have champagne to your meals.
Favorite Dish: Foie gras de canard (maison) et ses toasts 12.80 Euro
Main course is the duckbreast. (not always on the menu...
Les profiteroles au caramel au beurre sal?

Located near most of the Champagne Caves near Basilique Saint-Rémi, Restaurant les Charmes offers a traditional menu with regional touches. The delicious dishes seem very homemade and include foie gras, sweetbreads, salmon, among other items. Naturally, a wide range of Champagnes and Champagne-based cocktails are available, along with wines from all over France. This restaurant was recommended by my guidebook, but I only chose it because it was the only one on the list near Basilique Saint-Rémi, where I was around lunchtime. No regrets.
Great High end priced restaurant, they serve great salads. Although bit expensive, its in the heart of the city centre of Reims & walkable distance from everything in the city centre. The servings are large & food is well presented & well cooked with helpful servers.
Great Ambience, nice music & hospitable staff a perfect palce for dinner.
Favorite Dish: Mediterranean Salad
Visit the Pommery. Going down 100 feet and drinkimg champaign out of those cold vats is something you will never forget.
Favorite Dish: Sitting in a restaurant watching a trapeze show overhead. (this was during WW2, l don't think that restaurant is there anymore.
This is a very nice INDIAN RESTAURANT, which is located in Reims for already over 12 years!
In a very atmospheric ambiance you can enjoy different specialities like:
biryanis aux saveurs subtiles
delicieuz nans au fromage
bières et vins indien
When, as I am, you are a fan of Basmati rice....then do enjoy this place.....located 2 steps from le Palais des Congrès.
Favorite Dish: A curry.........
Waida is a chocolatier, glacier, boulanger & patissier in downtown Reims. Located on Place Drouet d'Erlon, it's a popular stop for locals and tourists alike.
The two large windows at Waida are always filled with their magnificent chocolate. I happened to be in Reims during Easter, and the window display of huge chocolate bunnies and eggs was truly gorgeous. Their chocolates are works of art. Inside, there is a magnificent smell of chocolate and baking bread. The shop is always crowded! The day before Easter, the line to purchase chocolates went all the way out the door and out onto the street.
You can also find lovely pastries and breads at Waida, and I highly recommend that you sample at least one treat from this shop while you're in Reims.
Favorite Dish: Chocolate and their delicious eclairs.
Located at the main boulevard where things happen, this restaurant has a cozy atmosphere with a hectic activity during lunch/dinner times, so, take care of it and make a reservation or get there early.
With a french style kitchen the variety of meals is large and interesting, the cast is very communicative and kind, fast multilingual service. Clean, large room, with a modern style we were very comfortable inside, we were twice in there, first time with a marvelous pasta with french sauces based on cream and herbs, the second time exploring the bottom of the sea.
This second time Our choice was a casserole full of fresh mussels (shells included, of course) made with a white wine sauce with spices an herbs, so good it was that we repeated another casserole!
Of course, the beverages has only one option, remember that you are in Reims, the cradle of the magical bubbles, so, champagne. Let them make the choice for you, they know a lot about it, you will be not disappointed!
Favorite Dish: Mussels a la casserole, accompanied with champagne
We stopped in a cute little bar/restaurant for some coffees and beer. It was also a restaurant bustling with folks eating their midday meal. Unfortunately can't remember the name but I'm sure there are many like it all around Reims, France and Europe!
Good prices, good friendly service, ideally situated!
The restaurant specializes in mussels and champagne. The speciality being a bucket of Moules with bread and a glass of Kronenbourg 1664.
From the outside it looks very small but but it is huge inside.
Favorite Dish: Definately the Moules!
This is the land of the Champagne, so, even if it is usually quite expensive, do not forget to try one of these delicious wines as appéritif or just to make a toast for an enjoyable travel in France. Let the waiter advise you about the best choice in the wine list.
On the recommendation of our hotel host, we went to Flo and my wife and I agreed that our lunch here was the best meal of our two plus weeks in France and Germany. It was also among the most expensive, but well worth it. Flo is set in an old mansion across from the rail station and is housed in a lovely and elegant old mansion which has evidently been a meeting place for the upper crust since they started crowning the kings of France in Reims Cathedral. We arrived on a nice day and requested seating on the beautiful terrace. We were impressed with the upscale ambience and service - immediately upon being seated, we were served a glass of champagne each and a small bowl of olives. Nice welcome on our first day in the Champagne Region!
Looking at the menu, we decided that this would be our big meal of the day, so both had the delicious rumsteak in pepper sauce and a side of potatoes baked in cream and topped with swiss cheese, washed down with a couple of glasses of cote du rhone. A great meal in a wonderful setting.
