We visited this restaurant for an early evening meal, we arrived just after 6, and were shown to our table. The place had 3 other tables already seated, the young French waitress was very friendly and efficient. We took the early dining offer which was exceptional value. Even at the thought of vacating our table by 7.30 we never felt... More

Don't be put off by the outside, or the interior as a matter of fact. Lovely food, friendly staff. Only thing that let this restaurant down is how small and cramped it is. Would I come here again? Yes :)

Don't be put of by the outside appearance and inside it a bit tatty as well. Although the menu and the wine list are not vast the food is delicious and the wine good. Very reasonably priced and well worth a visit. We ate on a Wednesday evening and it was very busy glad we booked a table. Be sure... More

Some friends suggested me this restaurant. The food was average, nothing special. Inside it's not very nice and I think it needs a renovation. The service was quite slow but the waiter was very polite and nice. I found it quite expensive. I think the problem was I went in there with very high expectations when actually it's not as... More

The waiter was friendly and attentive The food was delicious and whilst we did struggle with the dessert, it was so good, we... More

Book . Finish by 7.25 and free drink and sweet. We loved it. Could have eaten here again and again. Very friendly owners. Loved the English songs sung in French.

Exquis is a really small, independent restaurant near the town centre and the beach. It's run by French people, and is quirky and appealing. It's quite dark inside, painted mustardy yellow and red - and there are not many covers, so book or risk disappointment. Don't come here if you are expecting an immaculate place with formal dining and really... More

Had a dinner here with my wife and the service as always is great. The is food 'proper' French food. Nothing much more to say. Remember it is not a fast food outlet and sometimes they are busy! Enjoy the food, wine and conversation like the French do. If you need quick cheap food get a kebab!

Probably not to everyones taste. I have to say this in the hope that there will be a table free when I'd like one again. It is french, with an English touch. Not complicated, not expensive and the Halibut was perfect. Don't go there for american portions, it's French, and that's why it's so good.
