We stumbled across this little bistro quite by accident and how lucky were we. The dips were all made by the chef, one was a stilton and cream dip which was fantastic. The lamb was the best I have ever tasted. My partner had the monkfish which he said was absolutely fabulous - a definite must!

Stumbled upon this place when Mama's across the street didn't open Til 5pm. Clean, pleasant decor, and friendly service. Good selection of freshly prepared food.

We were looking forward to returning but unfortunately it just was not as good as before. Lots of dishes were unavailable and a limited wine menu. No filet steak or duck no new potatoes no creme brûlée or lemon tart. The medium rare steak was undercooked and the coffee undrinkable. Shame as the staff were lovely and friendly. Disappointing

Me and my wife visited here after reading many a good review on the place. We weren't disappointed! The place itself is hidden in one of the less desirable areas of Blackpool which is a shame as it deserves to be right in the heart of the centre where more would enjoy! The decor is a little dark, slightly cold... More

Found this place via the trip advisor community. We were staying at a hotel that had poor reviews for food so didn't want to waste money there. Spotted the early bird offer , £11.95 , 2 courses with a drink ( wine , beer or soft ). It seems people didn't know about this deal as we were the only... More
