Le Monde a l'Envers is a great restaurant for a top end night out, really good food a welcoming host and nice romantic evening atmosphere. The menu is pretty pricey but the food is good quality and for that special night out a good restaurant to go to, it's worth booking as they are often fully booked.

Took my 80 year old Mum in for a lunch, food excellent (as usual) and service great. It's the set menu at lunchtime with a choice of 3 mains, I had the fish which was delightful and Mum had the pork cheeks which she really enjoyed. I have had the boogie burger before and that again was excellent. Will definitely... More

Superb food in a wonderful restaurant. Please book ahead as this place is always busy and deservedly so. Having a simple menu, the freshest ingredients with a skilled chef makes this place very popular.
