    • L'IMPRÉVU is located on the Place de la Fourche with its old cobblestones in the heart of the Saint Nicolas district where the tree “Paulownia”, behind the Old Port. With a beautiful sunny and shaded exterior terrace.

      L’Imprévu is an old mansion in freestone, with a beautiful private courtyard sheltered by an Art Deco glass roof; a vintage and industrial decor, then dressed with an enamel plate. A room upstairs (can be privatized) with frescoes bearing the image of the famous painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec accompanied by designer furniture providing a cozy atmosphere.

      We have selected a wide range of wine, champagne and craft beers. We have specially designed our cocktail menu with its beautiful glassware.

      For the catering menu:
      - House specialty "Les Moules en Papillotes" cooked a la plancha
      - Ile de Ré oysters
      - Salmon Gravlax
      - Sea Board
      - Charcuterie/Cheese board

      A young and dynamic team and a musical atmosphere will warmly welcome you for the summer season.

      We are partners and receive free concerts during FrancOff (Off des Francofolies festival) as well as Jams during occasional evenings.

    The location is great, the place is ok, the food is alright but the prices are ridiculous. An XL charcuterie board for 30€+ which looked more like a medium small. Mussels with chips instead of fries... Disappointing. For those kind of prices, you expect a little more.

    Cosy bar hidden in old town, with little courtyard-beer garden and... customer toilet outside. Don't feel put off. It is very vintage looking bar, therefore toilet outside fits into the theme. Bar has another little surprise factor which is a brewery in the basement a glimpse of which you can have through glass panel fitted into the floor right under your feet. Staff were nice and friendly.

  • "Disappointed"

    3 / 5 Reviews posted by Simon W (Watford, United Kingdom) on 31/10/2019

    Attractive little bar in a pretty location. Probably best to stick to cold food though. The mussels are cooked at the bar in foil on a hot plate. We ordered Mariniere, but the liquor tasted too...
