Took Mother in law to our favourite restaurant for the first time for lunch!! The rib eye steak was perfectly cooked, garlic prawns delicious and they had crab for the fussy one! Our daughter had moules and ate the lot. Friendly service and it was declared the best restaurant she had ever been to.

Randomly wandered into this restaurant on a Saturday and found it a quite good restaurant. Although I believe that typical of some of continental restaurants in UK, this also is geared to accommodate British clients rather than being purely French but the quality of food was very good indeed as well the service. A clean and nicely decorated environnement with... More

This is a real local gem. Authentic French cuisine from JP in the kitchen combined with friendly and knowledgeable service from his wife and staff sets the restaurant up perfectly. We have now been twice, but tried 4 times, so make sure you book at weekends. The food is worth planning for in advance though and is not cheap, but... More

The restaurant was taken over for a friend's 70th birthday bash. The first course of fresh lobster, crab, shrimps, mussels etc was out of this world. This was followed by saddle of lamb which again was brilliant. The sweet was to die for. The staff were attentive, but not obtrusive. All in all a very very good experience. We will... More

Great venue for a quick lunch or the full works at dinner - fantastic seafood and traditional french cooking. Best onion soup around, unbeatable steak frites and a daily 'specials' board that always makes it a difficult choice...

What a wonderful restaurant! We had the pleasure of attending a 70th Birthday lunch party here on 16 October, and could not recommend this place highly enough. Despite our party packing out the whole restaurant, nothing was too much trouble for the fantastic staff. The food was excellent, and all requests for vegetarian and dairy free information and options were... More
