Had an early lunch on Saturday which made the restaurant quieter than usual and were given a choice of tables which is unusual and appreciated. We were eating out that night so opted for half a kilo of modules mariniere each. Added a portion of French fries which made an ideal lunch. Food is lovely, atmosphere Gallic and a great... More

Good central location , very busy unfortunately the tables are very close together . Also very noisy but I would rather a lively atmosphere than stuffy quiet dining room. Food actually quite disappointing I had vegetarian options starting with soup which was not as hot as I would have liked - otherwise ok but anyone can turn out a bowl... More

Really delicious food, atmosphere and service - it was like being back in France! the pre theatre menu was excellent. Beef shin in creamy tarragon sauce with vegetables - not an obvious combination but definitely a winner. My sea bream with lemon risotto was just delicious too. Wine quite pricey - we were lulled back into France with everything else... More

Quaint and cosy French restaurant in the foodie quarter of Perth. Staff are consistently friendly. The ingredients are excellent and cooking is always inspired and delicious. It is well patronised locally, so the place has a genuine buzz about ti.

My friend and I went for lunch after a bit of retail therapy. A choice of menus, the daily lunch menu or the classique menu. We choose from the lunch menu and had a very good meal. Good wine list and friendly service. The restaurant was full with tables also outside. Obviously a very popular restaurant with great French cooking.... More

In for lunch with my 4 year old and my mum. Starters of mussles and pate were lovely, as were the mains of Beef shin and lamb. Service great too. Kids offering is a bit uninspired, would be nice if they could have small portions off the main menu. My daughter tasted my beef and loved it but she couldn't... More

Atmosphere and ambiance always good. Their classics are usually better than their specials or A la carte we have found but that is not always the case! Sometimes there are good specials too. Wine is pretty good service good and always welcoming and friendly. Would definable reccomend a visit.

I had bavette (a beef steak) which was tasty and my husband opted for the lamb with a Provençal sauce which he thoroughly enjoyed. A nice bottle of Cotes du Rhone was also enjoyed. We sat outside as it was a warm evening and... More

We had a lunch here with friends on Saturday. The service was a tad slow to start with but it was worth waiting for. We all thought the food was excellent and a bit different to the usual - it being heavily influenced by French cuisine. Our waiter was friendly.
