le Queen's: right in the center queen,Amiens
for a view of the world of Amiens and great drinks with simple cooking like burgers and pizzas, simple menu du jour this is my stop in town.
The ambiance is rock, and chic, with great looks out into the square and the folks coming from the CathedraL
Favorite Dish: burgers pizzas, beers and people watching in Amiens

Les Marissons: Quincentational French by the canals,Amiens
wonderful ambiance by the canals near an old boatyard from the 15C, and great ambiance with jazz live music. Very typical sourrounding and great French cuisine. The place, and the food warrants a visit each time in the city.
I go by car so there is some parking spaces by the restaurant easy except in summer , then you can park the parking St Leu, until 21h30 and free with your ticket that can come out 24/24.
Favorite Dish: The best plates are those from season whatever is on the house fresh, in the past i had two times delicious meals with Pâté de canard d'Amiens en croûte au foie gras ( cold press meat of duck of Amiens region with liver) , and the St Jacques en saison de pêche( scallops in season)
as best that can translate them ::)

Au Bureau: Pub in the center of Amiens
It was raining out for our evening in Amiens so we asked our hotel desk for a restaurant close by and one of the places she suggested was Au Bureau, just a 5 minute walk away. The place is definitely set up as a pub but they do have a full menu of French bistro food and pizzas. I saw an Au Bureau in another city we were in, it appears to be a chain of restaurants
Favorite Dish: I ordered the tartiflette savoyarde, a dish made with cheese, ham and potatoes which came with a salad (9.90€) and a ruby Leffe beer. David ordered the Croque Madame, a sandwich made with ham, emmenthal cheese topped with an over easy egg which came with what we would call steak fries. I was very satisfied with my meal and while the service wasn't cheery it was quick.
les marrissons: les marrisons waste of money
service non existant. Food below average. you wait 30 min to be offered an apperitif and then after you finish it - at least 15 min later you are given the menu. A glass of champagne or wine costs nearly the same as the ritz but you dont have a waiter that is polite or knows what they are doing. in fact the waitress doesnt ven know the specials or have a recommendation without running back to the kitchen. Sommelier what a laugh no idea - the same for the "fromage" person. 200euro for 2 people ok if you have quality but here a waste. the first time the michelin guide has been wrong. Do yourself a favour dont visit this restaurant - you will be totally disappointed. only redeeming feature the location
Favorite Dish: food below average
Tante Jeanne: Make sure you order the right crepe.
Favorite Dish: I had a cheese, sausage and mushroom crepe (7€). Louisa and I shared a carafe of white wine (7.50€). The crepe was good but I expected the sausage to be similar to an Italian sausage, not like hotdogs! Total. 10.75€.

Val D'Ancre: Wonderfully prepared food
If you are lucky enough to experience Le Macassar (bed and breakfast) the owners will no doubt tell you about this restaurant. Situated about 5 minutes drive in the next village to Corbie (about 20 minutes from Amiens) The owners of the b&b have an agreement with the restaurant owners that one takes you there and the other brings you back - Great, you can all drink and not worry about the driving!
The food is all freshly prepared and the menus range from about 20 Euro for 4 courses.
The wine is excellent too although after the first time I did opt for a more expensive one the second time and must admit it was much better.
Favorite Dish: I opted for the langousitne salad to start and the fillet of beef with various potato patties to go with it.
Le Pre Porus: Superb location
This fantastic restaurant sits on the bank of the river and if the weather is good try and get a table outside overlooking the water.
Unfortunately we did not eat here but stayed for a couple of drinks. The food that was being served to the guests certainly looked good and we will definitely eat here on our next visit. The guys at the hotel have eaten here and said it is really good.
Le Pop Chope: Inside the Carrefour complex
This was a small cafe inside the Carrefour complex, perfect for a drink and a sandwich after a hard day looking for bargains in the main store. I liked the fact that you could park your trolleys in the big wide aisle and not get in anyone's way.
It's typical small French cafe style, waiter service, local people indulging in banter, but I missed the street outside and perhaps being in a town square.
Favorite Dish: You can expect to pay 1,70 for a creme coffee, 3,70 for a croque monsieur (cheese on toast) or 2,40 for a roastbeef sandwich.
I love the bread they do the croques on, it just tastes better than ordinary bread.
Nothing stunning, foodwise, but reasonably priced and it was clean.

Le Fauquets: Friendly locals
The local brasserie not only serves up excellent food and drink but the locals realy make you feel welcome too. Just about to leave at the end of the evening and we were offered more drinks to stay! The landlord is a lovely chap and encouraged us to stay and chat with the other people.
Favorite Dish: The pancake stuffed with ham and cheese was mouthwatering as was the huge tuna salad.
La Table D'Agathe: Great local produce
Serving regional food this restaurant in the town of Corbie is excellent for a lovely evening out. The house wine is of good quality as was the food and ambience.
Favorite Dish: The beef with foie gras was a good choice for the main course and I can thoroughly recommend the nougatine ice cream with raspberry coulis for dessert!
La Queue de vache .: The Behind of the cow!
The sun was shining gently...
We already had visited some great spots but
started to feel a bit hungry.
The 'quai Bélu ' is full of restaurants.
The terraces in front these little colorful
houses looked very tempting.
Favorite Dish: They advertised with this great bread they served.
The flour was molded by asses and baked
in an oven stoked by wood.
It tasted good but had quit a hard structure.
What we chose was on the suggestion board.
Two sorts of cold roast , sliced very fine.
Served with a salad , potatoes , vegetables
with a very tasty vinaigrette.
Simple , but fantastic.
O , before I forget... the cocktail maison.
It was without alcohol and tasted fantastic.
I couldn't tell what was in it.
4 euro..but who cares. ;^-)
And the nice vieuw and atmosphere were for free.
The lady of the house pampered us.

Tante Jeanne: Good eats in Amiens!
It's a homey family style restaurant, complete with country style decor and a really cute upstairs dining room. The waiters are friendly, there is a great view of the Cathedral, and an outdoor terrace in the summer.
Favorite Dish: The crepes there are so good!! My favorite is the seafood crepe filled with shrimp, crab, fish, etc. After that have a honey and nut dessert crepe or chocolate and banana crepe! So delicious!!
I would recommend the...
I would recommend the Restaurant Les Marissons, in the Quartier Saint Leu.
As any other French city, Amiens is full of brasseries that offer regional and moder cuisine at reasonable prices (choose a formule or day menu with different possibilities).
