The restaurant is well located and within easy walking distance of most of the motels along... More

This is some of the best French food I have had. Simple, authentic, incredibly tasty and very good value. If only we'd found it sooner we would have been back many times! Highly recommended.

We enjoyed the steak and fish dishes. The servings were generous. The fish was fresh and beautifully cooked. The accompanying saffron rice was full of flavour. The steak was cooked just as requested. The service was perfect. It is always a lovely French experiebce here.

Very good food at reasonable prices. We were a group of four couples and we ordered from the fixed price menu. Servings were of generous size, our waitress was friendly and we had a very enjoyable time.
