We came here for an early dinner on a Friday night. We didn’t have to book, but it did get busy as we were there so I might recommend reserving if you are heading there later. The food is classic French and there is a...More

I loved this place. We visited during the winter festival so it was quite busy. However we managed to get a table fairly quick. The food was super tasty. The best lamb I've ever had!

I was pleasantly surprised by not only the quality of the food, but also the friendly, multilingual staff and the reasonable prices. Would definitely visit again!
