I ate here with a friend on a rainy August evening. The food was lovely, the wine well priced and the staff were really friendly and helpful, even making sure the awning was sufficiently extended so we didn't get wet. Definitely one to revisit.

Conveniently placed in a road adjacent to Covent Garden, this restaurant offers a varied menu to suit most tastes and well cooked, tasty food. The wine list is a bit limited and a bit on the pricey side, the food however was good value. The overall impression is of a great atmosphere, excellent service and an enjoyable evening!

The food was great and reasonable price. Cosy Ambiance that reminds you of Paris. The highlight for myself was the witty service received from the waiter. had some good laugh and enjoyed the experience

I had an excellent lunch here, better priced that in Covent Garden and only just around the corner. The service was great and it had a good atmosphere, you can sit outside.

Ate Sunday Brunch here in February. Came upon the restaurant by accident and it was packed full. Had to wait about 25 mins for a table but it was worth it. Very enjoyable and lovely food!!
