Very cosy restaurant with warm friendly service & good fresh food, freshly cooked & a lot of it is locally sourced. The garlic bread had real garlic, my prawn cocktail was not as tasty as it could have been but all the other dishes were great. Good wine & desserts. Well done.

My partner and I had 2 midweek specials (their famous onion soup and steak with frites) with ratatouille, desserts, half litre carafe of house red and 2 aperitifs (Kir) for £63 (+ tip). Superb value, great meal. Service pleasant and efficient. I can wholeheartedly recommend.

We both went for the classic combination of French onion soup followed by Fillet steak. The soup was the best I had ever had which is suprising given that we live in France for 6 months a year. When we could not decide which sauce to order with our steaks the waitress suggested she bought us 3 different ones for... More

The service was pretty average for the cost of our meal but the food was very good. We were served by at least 4 staff. French onion soup and filet steak were delicious!

We have been dining at L'Experience for the last six years during our annual visit to the Isle of Man. Previously, including our first visit this year, it has been excellent in terms of both food and service. However, our visit tonight (24 July 2014) presented a diffrent picture in that it left much to be desired, particuarly in terms... More

High expectations dashed by very offhand service. No complaints about food; solid French old fashioned French cuisine but only fair value at those prices. Staff (and patron) need training!

We first went during the 2013 TTs race week as a group of 12 'scousers' after a recommendation from a local shop owner, they made a call and we were booked in. After having such a nice meal and perfect hospitality we vowed to go back each year we visit the TTs for at least one 'decent' meal during the... More

I went to this restaurant in tt week and I had never been before and I was very pleased. I had the steak and it was to die for and the French soup was amazing. I have been to France many of times. But all of the posters and look of it all made me feel like I was in... More
