We received a warm welcome on a busy Thursday evening. We were quickly seated on a nice table towards the back. They asked if they could take our coats and drinks promptly ordered and delivered. I didn't start to well with the menu. The voucher we'd received had a sample of what to expect on the menu I got a... More

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful meal last evening in a very full and buzzy L'Experience Restaurant. We both had a tasty starter of prawns and salmon followed by lemon sole with a crab's claw accompanied with a choice of salad, potatoes or French fries. The fish was absolutely fresh as it was local and the crab caught only... More

The atmosphere is very relaxing, and the staff are courteous and polite. The food is the clincher in this place. Absolutely brilliant food. Have the house-special French Onion soup, I kid you not you will be licking out the bowl when its finished......it is delicious!!

Well, having not been to this restaurant, i was greeted with familiar decor and layout, nothing had changed, at all! The menu was identical, table and chairs...everything! Food was very good, enjoyed it, exactly what you'd expect. It ticks the French box. The downside was that our table was dirty, no effort had been made to clean away crumbs from... More

I took my friend here for her birthday and we were very impressed. I had the steak with pate in the middle and it was the best steak I have ever had! The wine was good too. Will be back soon!

The food is always superb. The French onion soup is a must try and the steaks always a popular option too. The restaurant is quite intimate and darky lit, so great for a romantic meal for two, but have also had some great nights with larger groups.

My friends, family and I visit L'Experience as often as possible. The food is wonderful, the staff are friendly and the ambience is perfect for an enjoyable dining experience. You can enjoy your evening without ever feeling rushed or hassled and are guaranteed a great meal. It has an authentic French/Parisian restaurant style (more room however!) with chequered tablecloths, French... More

Visited with friends who live on the Island and had groupon ticket. The voucher gives you onion soup, followed by rib eye steak in pepper sauce, no problems there. On first impressions the restaurant looks tired and dreary, but once seated, candles lit and with a few more customers coming in, it warms and gets a bit of atmosphere and... More
