Perfect food,friendly service, just I did not really enjoyed the atmosphere. Needs refreshing.Just my opinion. Despite all this, pleasant visit. The soup was one of the best soup which I ever ate.I had I really delicious mousse for the dessert. Thanks for the experience.

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 !!!

Dreadful service combined with over priced average food does not add up to a good French Restaraunt. This was a very disappointing experience made worse by a waiter that clearly did not want to be there. Our main courses were just about acceptable but our advice would be do not order the creamed spinach which was nothing short of disgusting.... More

Small restaurant but in a good location for us as we were staying in Onchan, and this was just down the hill from us. We took my 91 year old aunt there for dinner and she enjoyed the evening there having had an enjoyable meal with a glass of wine. I had the filet steak with pepper sauce and it... More

We were recommended by the hotel owner who booked us a table. Good choice from the menu plus specials board. I had a perfectly cooked cod with scallops thermidore which was delicious followed by a chocolate mousse with Armagnac cream. Nice atmosphere with unusual decoration- lots of french posters and candles in bottles. Not cheap but worth it for the... More
