From the outside this restaurant doesn't look very inviting. It took me a few times of pointing this place out to my partner before we took the plunge. I really enjoyed my food and it was great value for money! Surprisingly both the food and drink are good value. We didn't have to wait long for our food and the... More

The price was according to the number of courses taken and was vey reasonable. £14.00 for 3 courses. Starters were varied and included, crayfish, soup, pate,etc. the mains were again... More

I make sure I book a table here every time I visit Eastbourne and have never been anything but delighted by the food, wine, staff and atmosphere. It's not only near-faultless cooking, but is superbly good value and a great French provincial menu.

I wouldn't have tried this restaurant had I not read the very complimentary TripAdvisor reviews. We were a party of four and went on a Friday lunchtime and had a very good three course meal with a bottle of wine for about £68. The service was efficient and pleasant, the main course salmon dish in a cream sauce was copious... More

What a beaut! The food here is amazing, small but delicious menu. The duck scotch eggs are incredible. Got stuck in the gents and nearly broke a leg on the way down but for £20 for 3 courses including drinks I'd sacrifice a limb. 10/10!

As usual a great lunch, couldn't resist the confit du canard (which I always have) and it was delicious. This restaurant is only open at lunch times on Fridays now but it is very good value.

Amazing food and good value, if you want a good rustic french experience then this is the place. Do pay the extra and have the confit it really is worth it. Portions are a little small but it is quality not quantity here. I have had some amazing nights here.

Fantastic is the word to describe this place. Food was fresh, tasty and you got a nice gap between courses. Every course was great. If you have not been it's a must, fabulous set menu prices with real choices. Rustic French gem in the middle of town. Awesome
