Visited after watching Rick Stein long weekend. Would like to give Rick a big kiss now for introducing us to this amazing restaurant. The rustic decor, atmosphere, food and staff were all exceptional. I would highly recommend this place. The chicken and goose fat chips...More

I feel this restaurant is just a tourist trap. Grossly overpriced, 3 small scallops without crown in a sauce was €26 as a starter. The staff were friendly and tried to be helpful. I understand that Rick Stein recommended this place on one of his...More

We popped in late on a Friday night and the host went at of his way to squeeze us in. The food was exactly what we wanted classic french cuisine. The Cote de boeuf was incredible! and service was attentive without being to much. *****

We had dinner here together on a recommendation of a family friend. He suggested the lamb which by all accounts was excellent. However i had a mediocre fillet chateaubriand which wasn’t the best I’ve had. The service was ok but the restaurant is vastly overpriced...More

A fun meal which is basically seriously posh duck or steak and chips. The chips cooked in duck fat were surprisingly not crisp but nevertheless tasty. I had the duck which was enormous and cooked to perfection. The waiters were lovely and so helpful. They...More
