100 billion out of 10 There are no actual words to describe how amazing the food is here! Every time I have a steak anywhere else it will be compared to this place. The steaks are honestly out of this world. Unbelievable. Outstanding. Phenomenal. Sublime. Etc etc. The current Missus had a salmon salad and she was blown away with... More

We were welcomed by one of the waiters who was extremely helpful throughout. The food was great with a good selection and the desert just... More

We had been looking forward to having mussels all day, we looked on the menu and there they were. We duly went in and were seated. The waiter came to take our order, but, no mussels. Apparently, they were too small at this time of year. At this point we really should have left and gone somewhere else (I subsequently... More

Had a very pleasant dinner here. The service is corteous and promt; the food is the tasty classics of french cusine. The great thing about this place is that it stays open until late at night, contrary to most other restaurants in the area which close at about 9pm.

Both courses were disappointing, sadly my salad main course had so much oil I could not eat it all. We had an apertif each 2 starters and two salad main courses, a bottle... More
