We first went to the restaurant in July this year. We returned to the area visiting friends in October 2016. From the outside, if you did not know it was a great place you would drive by. Inside, the restaurant has classic French feel to it. The menu is not cluttered and each dish that came to our table was... More

I have to be honest, we have visited here a few years ago and did not have a very good experience, but we have been twice now in the last 6 months, the latest on Saturday, and have been pleasantly surprised. Everything was as it should be. Excellent food, good, but never intrusive service and well priced. Definitely recommend and... More

Our first visit here to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Attentive service, good food and a reasonable price made for a very enjoyable meal. Eating on the patio was very pleasant on a warm evening. I am sure we will be returning soon.

We were taken by some friends who live close by. What an experience. The restaurant had a calm and serine feel about it with a big fire place, old bookcases and wooden slatted ceiling. The staff were so pleasant and attentive. They couldn't do enough for you. The food was Devine. We had the sirloin which was done to perfection.... More

We were treated beautifully. Wonderful meal and very reasonably priced for the restaurants setting and the flavours of the food. Wine was particularly good as well!

With my brother and sister-in-law out to be impressed, we chose El Postillón for our Sunday lunch. We chose the Fish Terrine - light as a feather, but packed with taste and a medium cooked steak each. The tenderest meat, seasoned perfectly served with vegetables and chips to share. To finish the Chocolate fudge cakes. This meal was not for... More
