The fish restaurant is consistently excellent, the food always delicious and to my mind very good value for the quality. There's usually a prix fixe with some tasty options as well as a la carte for a bit more choice. I've never had a duff meal, in fact it's some of the finest seafood I've eaten, bringing together French, Asian... More

This was our fourth visit to the Wells a la carte restaurant, booked in advance, on-line, over a period of a few months. The first three visits gave a first class experience. On this occasion we were "greeted" by the surly French madame and seated in the cafe; The small round table was not really big enough for three persons... More

Loved, the cakes, the ambience, creamy hot chocolate or beautiful coffee, and a great light menu. Morning coffee equally good, probably the best in Wells.

I have been to both the Wells and Stepton Mallet restaurants and can say that if nothing else they are consistent. Both venues the food was indeed good, however in both we were graced by absolutely abysmal abrupt and quite frankly rude and arrogant service by on both occasions French staff. The place has great potential to be one of... More

I have to say, the food was sensational, presentation, spot on and the attentive staff perfect. My fish dishes were very well cooked and the wine recommended by the sommelier was just right for the food we were eating. I am looking forward to our next celebration so we may eat there again.

Four of us were here for lunch on Saturday and were very pleasantly surprised. It's a small, cosy restaurant and therefore space is at a premium - especially if there's more than four of you eating together, however the food was seriously good, very good value and the staff very pleasant. I only have one criticism - if you can... More

Consistently good food, reasonable price. Wine selection good. Desserts are fantastic! Setting is not quite so inspiring but if its good food you're looking for, then you won't be disappointed.

We had a wonderful meal here with perfect service from very friendly staff. We stuck to the fish menu and found thall the dishes beautifully presented and all tasting delicious. The puddings were lovely also. The wine list was very varied and interesting. The only reason why I have not given it an excellent rating is that the ambiance really... More

Went there last Friday with friends, three of us had the fish menu and we were all very impressed with the quality of food, presentation is great and flavours are amazing, only disappointment was the cooking of the fish. I had a selection of fish dish and got scallop, sea bass tuna and salmon. Sea bass and scallop were perfect... More

This is a very nice little restaurant serving excellent food. It's a small space but the management have resisted any urge to pack people in and, as a result, it's a very comfortable dining experience. I was particularly impressed by the staff. They are few in number and therefore have to work extremely hard but they kept a smile on... More
