Another fabulous meal at Chryselois - we have been here on many occasions and have never been disappointed. it's not the cheapest place to eat, but the food is great. The owners are very welcoming and there is always a good atmosphere. They usually have music/entertainment on Summer weekends. Will definitely go again.

We booked a table this Wednesday, and had the tasting menu. Nice table on the terrace. Ordered two glasses of red wine before the food. These were served way to warm (lukewarm), but were promptly replaced by new glasses of wine of the correct temperature when we complained. Then came the food: Very good, and well worth a visit.

The only regret we have is not finding this restaurant sooner! We had a great dining experience here, from start to finish we felt really taken care of. The friendly staff greeted us at the entrance and led us to a beautiful dining area where there was a beautiful Spanish guitarist playing for the evening. We cannot find fault with... More

After hearing a few good things about this place, I thought I'd give it a try... I'll start with the poor to none existent service - after being told there would be a half an hour wait for food orders, we said that's fine, could we have a wine menu to keep us occupied during our wait. 20 minutes passed...

It appears that you either have a great dining experience or you just don't, and we were just unlucky enough to take the bullet on this occasion. The place was empty, the staff unfriendly and inattentive, and to say that the service was slow is a monumental understatement. The food is actually very good (I appreciate not to some tastes,...
