We started with drinks in the bar area, which was lovely. Service was spot on and very friendly. We were joined by our good friends and all enjoyed a gorgeous meal. The restaurant is perfect for Christmas all cosy and warm. We would definitely recommend and will be back soon.

I've eaten here at least four times in the last two years and can easily state that this is my favourite restaurant in the Poole/Bournemouth area. However, it is with special thanks that I am writing this review because Maggie was really helpful in ensuring that my requests were catered for. I asked for a couple items that weren't on... More

Went to this restaurant for the first time with friends on Friday night. Between us we chose a selection of different meals, all were delicious and very well cooked. The service was excellent with very attentive staff. Will definitely be eating there again.

This was my first visit and it was quite possibly the best meal out I've ever had. The food was cooked perfectly, tasted great and was well portioned. The service and ambience were excellent too. For the standards delivered the pricing is also very reasonable. The reputation of this long established restaurant is well deserved.

Great food and wine as usual. One of the best little restaurants in Poole. A nice little booth is best and feels romantic, but these get booked up fast.

Another excellent french bistro style restaurant in Poole. The food is amazing, service is always fantastic and well priced. The only thing I would suggest is to change the menu every now and then! Been the same for a while.
