I came for lunch and left stuffed! The schnitzel was my favourite part of the meal, which was incredibly quick to be served. Chief Bernard was very hospitable and a pleasure to visit with.

My wife and I have made many visits to Chef Bernards. The food is always great. The pasta dishes are at the lower end of the price scale and are always delicious and good value...

The place is like visiting something back in time, but not in a good way. The food was so bad, we ended up eating somewhere else after. The staff were pleasant though.
