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

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

Really lovely and initimate restaurant. Service was a little slow but it was packed to the brim when we went. Candlelit tables and lots of French posters all over. The food was gorgeous and the steak cooked to perfection. Would go back here for sure! Very nice!

We come here every year for the TT and always make sure we come to this restaurant at least once. The food is fantastic and the service we received was fun and friendly. I can't recommend this enough and this year we were even invited to watch the end of week fireworks from a great a view 😁

We came here this week during the TT races, after a recommendation from a charming receptionist in our hotel. We were not disappointed! A shared starter of prawn cocktail with grrreat smoked salmon was followed by lemon sole and then ice cream (shared). A litre of reasonable house carafe rose helped everything along! Good, friendly service, a humming, packed room,... More
