What a fantastic place, serving authentic french cuisine with great local produce, we were absolutely blown away by the quality & range of what is on offer. Anyone visiting Wick & Caithness really needs to try dinner here. A great place for foodies.

This is such a superb restaurant, we wish we could eat here all the time. The specials were amazing! My crab salad, followed by pheasant in a gorgeous mushroom gravy was one of the best meals I've ever had in my life. My husband also loved his sea bass dish. The side scallop potatoes we shared were delicious. Danny, the... More

Recently stayed overnight in Wick, coldish, windy, rainy evening, nothing seemed to be happening in the town, restaurant recommended by local B&B and Information Centre. Recommendation justified, it was a warm inviting atmosphere and the food was delicious. My husband's starter and main were superb (I was not allowed to sample even a small bit, shows how good that was!)... More

not just good food, but great food,well presented and well served one of the best French meals I have had and I had to travel 750 miles from the channel coast to get it. Meals are nicely proportioned in size. I had the grilled goats cheese salad, the rabbit and cheeseboard. All were excellent. Not the cheapest at £74 for... More

Good value cooking in the French style of old, with some bold sauces (that might not be to everyone's taste. A warm welcome and nice conservatory overlooking the inner estuary.

Very nice authentic French food! Chef came out to make sure we were enjoying our meal. Lamb was cooked to perfection. Will be back next time I am in Wick!

My husband wanted to try out this restaurant having read the reviews online. We arrived on a wet Wednesday lunchtime and were initially the only diners so we bagged a table at the front overlooking the river. The menu was surprisingly comprehensive for lunch with something to meet all palates and appetites. I enjoyed a crab salad while my slightly... More

The cultural connections between France and Scotland are ancient. This lovely restaurant is a modern representation of those connections, on the river in Wick. There is an excellent wine list, and the menu is deliciously diverse. The choices I made-prawns followed by the pheasant with seasonal vegetables- were wonderful. The service and hospitality were also terrific. I look forward to... More

Lovely fresh seafood and salad. A nice relief from the deep fried offerings elsewhere. Gratin potatoes instead of chips. Go here, you wont regret it
