We attended as a pre-booked party of 10 and the service was good. Excellent choice of food available plus vegetarian and gluten free options. It was nice to see an interesting and varied menu. All the food was very good, would definitely visit again.

We went here last night and had a wonderful meal. The menu was distinctly French but also very imaginative and the food was delicious. The waitress was very friendly and helpful (without being pushy). A great experience which we'd definitely recommend.

Innovative & refreshingly designed meals. All of us enjoyed our choices & all of us would visit again. Colourful, well "plated", neat but generous and REALLY tasty! Fairly simple surroundings but comfortable & didn't detract at all from our experience. Street parking was easy for...More
