Excellent French food at this Ardmore BYOB. Good escargot, great trout and steak and pommes frites. The chicken special addition to the menu was mediocre but the overall meal was excellent

My father adores this place - I'm a seafood eater and they don't have many seafood choices, so it's not my personal favorite. That said, what I have eaten is very good and the service is pleasant. It's very easy to park around the back...More

So sorry for the delay. I hope you had the chance to go and enjoyed your meal. I find on average that I spend about 25 per person for lunch and around 35 at dinner.
