A decent meal for four, starters and mains, started with crab followed by excellent fish, great presentation, attentive service, not overbearing, I will certainly be returning with more friends.

Relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. Sat by the open kitchen and watched the chefs at work. A lovely lunch perfectly cooked and presented. This was our first visit but will return and recommend.

Mid week offer at £10 for main, dessert and glass of wine would be fantastic anywhere but when it is fine dining quality it is a real treat that you will want to enjoy again and again. Merci beaucoup!

This is not a gourmet place. The prices are very high due to the central location. The service was quite good and attentive.
