Built in 1900 by architect François Kips, Le Pesage (the weighing room building) was where jockeys and their saddles were weighed and weighted down so that all horses would be carrying the same weight during the race. From 1942 onwards, architect Paul Breydel added a number of Modernist buildings and annexes including, in 1951, the famous weighing room Annex.
Since late 2018, the building has been enjoying a new lease of life as unique, fun, family restaurant Le Pesage. The venue serves up creative cuisine that prioritises slow cooking and tasty local, seasonal products.
The building has been carefully decorated and its old lines enhanced by interior designer Lionel Jadot, making Le Pesage a wonderful venue for a great meal out with family or friends.
Le Pesage occupies an important position on the site, forming a natural meeting and stopping point for visitors.
The restaurant is open from wednesday to saturday from 12pm to 11pm and on sunday from 11am to 4pm. Closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
