Dining out often in Kendal, first time to experience this with families to charge for single supplement approx £3 per person which is unacceptable! The food is ok nothing is particularly outstanding.

But over expensive, definately not value for money and served by a waiter who is very cool to say the least you certainly get the idea you are not really good enough to be eating here, and Toulouse long treck as they saying goes up a set of very rickety stairs. Food very nice but as for the rest!!!

I've visited this restaurant many times and have always enjoyed it. The food is consistently good quality and the place has a cosy intimate atmosphere. I am local and have been here as a couple, with groups of friends and for special occasions. The early evening supper deal is great with three courses for £17.95! I'll go here time &... More

In the first week of January, 8.00pm mid-week, we stumbled into this cosy, yet bright welcoming Bistro. What a delight. We did not intend to have 3 courses but we did 'cos it was so good. The service was commendable, very friendly and efficiently delivered. If you are in Kendal then this is a gem to visit. Well done from... More

On this occasion there were 8 of us celebrating my sons 18th Birthday. All the food served came out at the same time and everyone really enjoyed the food and setting. The service was very good, friendly and very understanding in dealing with our large group. Rarely can you go to such an exceptional restaurant that is so consistently good... More

We ate here with some friends and really enjoyed the meal, very very tasty food and reasonably priced. We went on a Monday night so it was fairly quiet but the pace was just right. We will definitely return!
