Booked this as our big night out. French restaurant with great ambience. Interesting menu with a lovely selection for both starters & mains. Food was delicious perfect portions all main course were delicious. We had a selection of desserts to share which were scrumptious. Service was a bit slow but wasn't an issue as we were not in a hurry

I visited with 5 friends for a nice meal and a catch up. The decor was beautiful and the atmosphere was cosy and relaxing. The menu was tasteful, and our vegetarian and celiac friends were catered for. Our only issue was a mistake of an over charge of over €50 on our bill. It was 'rectified', but still not accurate....

My wife and I ate at Les Gourmandaises on the evening of November 1st, 2016. The restaurant was about half full, probably because it was a Tuesday in early November. We decided to go for the Special Meal for Two: Tapas and main course with a glass of wine. One small irritant here - we were not told what the... More

How to start, we booked a table for 5, got the menu with two 2 courses for about 40 euros, the only good food there was the ... the salmon, that they probably just had to remove from a plastic wrapping and present "nicely" on a fancy plate. That's about it, the service was awful, the duck was dry and... More

I was attending the Jazz festival and wandering around looking for some where to eat and called in on spec . I am so glad I did, very welcoming staff not overly attentive but just right. The bread was delicious, the Butternut Squash soup and its accompanying meat treat was warming and the steak sourced from the local English market... More

Went for dinner, the place was very busy so reservations are recommended. Had the prawns to start which were excellent. Had a fillet and cod dish, both tasted very good. Dessert was ok. Service could have been more attentive for this type of establishment but overall was OK. Will return.

Thank wlopez09
