A family business that began three generations back…

Café Le Français, opened in 1897, was purchased by Joseph RAMBOZ and his wife Anna Paule in 1927. In 1952, Pierre RAMBOZ and his wife Nicole converted the café into a brasserie.

Le Français’ business boomed.

Nicole and Pierre skillfully improved the restaurant’s food and service quality. Le Français became a popular spot for local personalities and celebrities in town to perform at the theatre. All were loyal patrons of the large dining hall and its delicacies.

Pierre RAMBOZ Jr. took over the family restaurant in 1995. A frequent visitor since a very young age, Pierre was able to maintain the family tradition while adding a modern touch.

Thus, from one generation to the next, Le Français has managed to maintain its unique character, true to the French brasserie tradition.
