We were staying at the hotel so tried this restaurant for dinner. The menu is similar to cafe rouge but slightly more upmarket. The quality of the food was excellent, lovely French bread, very salty butter and gorgeous baked Camembert to start followed by chicken...More

The service is fabulous, and food very tasty. Always fresh and prepared with care and attention to detail. Staff are polite, and attentive without being annoying. Has a fun Parisian theme to the restaurant.

Feels a bit like sitting in a film set but it does sort of transport you from Brockenhurst to France. Food good (and a bit different from the usual hotel fare). My partner had the Heritage tomato salad followed by crepes. Salad was fresh and...More

Went here three nights during my stay at Carey's Manor. The salmon fish salad was a deliciously prepared meal. The salad had a large variety of ingredients and flavored. Also had the filet which was expertly prepared and tasty.

Best meal we've ever had here. Absolutely superb, looked pretty and cooked to perfection. Starters were great as were the sweets. Friendly, helpful staff. They have a good children's menu although we didn't need it. All in all a successful night out.
