This little bistro style restaurant is excellent. We had a lovely round table in the centre of the dining area for our party of six which was perfect. The set menu provided us with ample choice but there is also an a la carte menu for a more varied selection if required. Portions were generous and little extra's like re... More

A group of us meet regularly to enjoy an evening meal and catch up with one another. We visited the Brasserie in Falcon Street for the first time and had a very enjoyable evening. The restaurant was relatively buy for a Tuesday evening but the front of house service was prompt and very friendly, a comprehensive fixed menu that offered... More

I have wonderful memories of this place. Can't fault it. Good food and service. Recommended. I would be back sooner if I didn't live so far away.

It was a satisfying meal to complement Ipswich's win. We had the soup of the day and white bait. The soup had a balanced touch of stilton. White bait was meaty and portion size was good as a starter. The steaks (Ribeye and Sirloin) were done to our liking - juicy and rich. We had to skip the desserts as... More

First visit with family for my birthday and was really pleased. The food was scrumptious and the staff were attentive without being too in your face. It has a lovely ambience and I would recommend it. The table had been decorated with balloons which was a nice touch. Very enjoyable.

lovely ambience, staff very pleasant, food wonderful! We'd been sent to this restaurant by mistake as the Hotel Manager had booked the wrong one, however, despite our disappointment at not being at the waterfront restaurant at the Marina it was a fantastic meal!

My husband and I regularly frequent this fine establishment. We have gotten to know the staff well and we always receive a warm welcome. They cater for gluten free and have a wide menu selection. A warm and friendly night out. We love it and are back again tomorrow for more. Thank you Brasserie. Aaron and Suzi.

The food here is good, reasonably priced and the atmosphere is fine. The thing that really let this place down was the staff and their lack of attention to detail. There seemed to be no manager managing the staff, they seemed more happy to socialize at the bar with other staff members rather than take notice of their customers. It... More
