I've been here quite a few times in the last year and have been happy to return. I was surprised that there were lots of options open for a table on both Friday and Saturday nights, I hope it's just January Blues. We got drinks quickly but then two really simple starters took 45 minutes to come out, in the... More

I came here to dine with friends and we were returning to L'Experience with high expectations. The prices have really gon up with each menu item being charged individually, which soon mounts up! We all had the French Onion Soup to start and I have no complaints here. The waiting staff were lovely and attentive, on the plus side. My... More

A very bust eatery and rightly so as the food is excellent. We took clients who were over from London and this restaurant can be in any major city. The decor does need updating but that does not detract from the meals served.

I had the best onion soup I have ever had with a melt in the mouth fillet steak. The pudding was equally good. The only downside was it was too dark to read the menu, seats were uncomfortable and the table was/is too low. I would recommend this restaurant for the food and would put up with the discomfort as... More

Great little restaurant on Douglas Promenade with lots of buzz at weekends. House red and white wines are inexpensive and very drinkable. There's always fresh fish on the menu board and their french onion soup is a meal in itself - delicious!

We've not been here for over a year but, stuck for anywhere offering late-ish lunch (1.30) on a Saturday we popped in, The place was very busy and we only just got a table. The menu had changed since we were last there and the dishes were very appealing. The service was a bit slow (they were clearly very busy)... More

Visit with friends mid November. Dreadful service, waited far too long before being offered a drink. Indifferent service from there on. Poor quality food at an extortionate price. Will not be rushing back !!!
