The staff were friendly, it the overall experience was mediocre. The food was rather ordinary. It lacked creativity but if you like large portions hit the spot. It reminded us of dining experiences from more than a decade ago.

My husband and I went for lunch to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. The food was amazing and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Cannot wait to go back - you must try the Normandy Pork, it was superb.

Excellent French onion soup followed by superbly cooked moules mariniere served by friendly and helpful staff in this small restaurant. Not at all pretentious is a plus.
