Very poor service. It made our evening unenjoyable. Cold mussels and sides arrived 10 mins after mains.

Was here for dinner and was very impressed with the offering. Very much a typical French brasserie, serving simple but delicious plates. The wine selection on offer is great too and the service is friendly (albeit a bit slow).More

Really a typical brasserie style menu and setting. The wine list was well chosen. Place was very busy (at dinner time, but emptied quickly), and seating invited some dialog between tables. Some recommendations were quickly shared, but we were in the mood for some traditional...More
