This restaurant isn't everyone's cup of tea... The atmosphere is buzzing and there's a lot of hustle and bustle, but in terms of food and service, I have to say, it's pretty damn good, if a tad expensive! Ribeye steaks at £18.95 however, needed to be as nice as they were for the price. The red wine was not the... More

Attempted to book a table for a wedding party of 6 people on Valentine's Day. The (male) person who answered the telephone was curt and unhelpful. I was told we could only have a table at the time we required for 1 hour and 45 minutes. Pushing it for a 4 course meal I thought and we did not want... More

Hello, I have sent you a personal message to yourself to begin an investigation into this. Our staff should always be courteous and friendly on the phone and I will not accept this kind of phone manner towards our customers. I hope to hear from you soon to assist me in this matter.

Fresh-tasting, great food (I had a fish dish which was lovely), decent choice of wines. Don't expect the French bistro/food experience as it is nothing like it but for Leicester it is pretty good. Would possibly return.

Spent xmas eve with you last year and loved it so much we thought we'd do it again and bring more friends! Your xmas menu was wonderful (Had the lamb - absolutely gorgeous, beautifully cooked). Atmosphere was very festive and staff were bright and helpful. Could't ask for more, don't risk going anywhere else, you'll be disappointed. Fantastic food and... More

After reading all the excellent reviews on Trip Adviser, studying the menu online and admiring the look of restaurant every time I'd walked past, I decided to book a table for my partners birthday. On arriving at the restaurant (a large party arrived just as we did) a rather hurried looking waiter showed us to a small cramped table centrally... More

Now going out on a Saturday in mid January and you expect places to be quiet however this place was full by 8pm - a sign that it is great. The food was good, the wine was served at the correct temperature but best of all the waiter was really good. Every time he touched our table he made us... More

I dined here the other day as a lunchtime treat, and was pleasantly surprised by the warmth of the welcome, the choice on the menu, the attentiveness & speed of service (important at lunchtime), and the price. I had a tomato & pepper soup which was served with warm French bread & unsalted butter (nice touch) followed by a 7oz... More

This restaurant is outstanding for the quality of the food, the ambience and the value for money. They don't try to sting you for the wine either! £18 a bottle for good quality wine is excellent.

Once again, we had a lovely meal. Staff were friendly and efficient, the food was very tasty and beautifully presented. Quieter than previous years which wasn't a bad thing as we've felt a little cramped before. Definitely be returning.
