This is a beautiful spot for a special occasion, the restaurant has a cosy elegant atmosphere and the staff are wonderful. The food is delicious, you get what you pay for, high quality local ingredients prepared by a chef that know exactly what they are doing. The wine list is excellent and the early bird menu is unbelievable value.

Chocolaté cake inedible! Very médiocre cuisine and quality of menu. Not the level which could be expected from a French restaurant . Too expensive for category of service.

The very helpful lady at front of house got us a very last minute table..very kind


We had a mix of early bird and a lá carte. Good tasty food, decent portions and a good choice. The desserts were head and shoulders above the mains though and Really were outstanding... I had a winter panacotta - lovely creamy wobbly panacotta with nutmeg, cranberry and orange... Absolutely Christmasy flavours but yet light and delicate.. Fab

We had a very nice meal here last night. Goats cheese ravioli starter followed by duck. All very tasty and the restaurant on a very chilly Dec night was very comfortable and nice and warm. The baked Banana and walnut cheesecake was delish!!!
