We have been coming here for several years and have never had a bad experience, always superb, although staff very busy service was excellent, food was to die for.

This restaurant is amazing. I've been to this restaurant for over a year now, I go kind of every month/every two months. Every time I go with different people and they all loved it. -The menu is changed every 3/4 months and is varied.. you always have the starter,main and dessert of the days. You have 4/5 choices for each... More

I'd not been here before and was a little hesitant but was very impressed. The decor was not up to much but adds to the charm of the place. The food was exquisite and reasonably priced as was the wine. Would recommend the Sea Bass as a main and creme brulee for dessert which was to die for. I will... More

Had some simple but beautiful french food. The staff were friendly and attentive when not rushed of their feet with a large, demanding Christmas party. The decor is scruffy and we had walked by a number of times because of the look of it from the outside. A friend recommended it and we were not disappointed. But if they spent... More

Six of us ate here for a Xmas celebration. The food was fantastic, so tasty and delicious. The smoked mackerel starter was tangy and moreish. The sea bass was great too. Everyone was very impressed, can't wait to go back.

This is a great little place, French cooking at its simplest and best, let the ingredients do the pleasing. Welcome was warm and friendly and service quick, efficient and without fuss. The only donw side was not the fault of the staff or restaurant, but the infuriating habit of some people, out to enjoy themselves, talking (nearly shouting at the... More

Hadn't been here for a while, so decided to try again, as noticed on Trip Advisor its ratings had gone up. Probably had the worst seat in the restaurant which was right beside the door. So with anyone arriving or leaving, I prepared myself for an icy blow down my neck. This could be prevented by a small screen fitted....but... More

We were looking for a good fish main that was not fish and chips and went to Exquis based on the reviews. The food was delicious from starter to desert and the ambience was really cosy and relaxing. We would definitely recommend this restaurant!
