Three colleagues and I enjoyed some good food and excellent wine at Ananas on a Friday night. The atmosphere is good albeit too loud for comfortable conversation and the service was a little slow but that's ok. The thing that spoiled it for me was that we were asked to leave the table for their second sitting after spending over... More

Went here with a group of eight business colleagues after work for a social night. It was a nice night but certainly the noise level meant you could only talk to those directly near you. Food was good but not distinctly French. The service was good but the mains took an extremely long time to come which made the evening... More

We dined here recently with no prior knowledge or expectation. The bar you enter before you are escorted through to the restaurant is uber industrial cool and quite beautiful but very noisy so don’t be put off if this is not your thing. The restaurant is beautifully fitted out with a fairly eclectic collection of “things”. We were seated at... More

Service is amazing, this little french restaurant tucked inside Argyle Bar delivers amazing service and food. We only had a bottle of wine and desserts to share, it was quite late at night but the staff were still very welcoming and friendly. The price is very reasonable for the quality delivered. We will definitely be back for a full course... More

Scene setting: we went for the Anana's picnic dinner as part of their Bastille celebrations. The positives: location in the Rocks (argyle) is perfect. I love that area and always enjoy going out around there. The restaurant itself is nicely designed. I love the bar, the little seating areas for something casual, with the larger seating area further in the... More

This is the first time that I have submitted a review for a restaurant where I didn't actually eat. I was with a group of colleagues and we were accepted without a reservation. We were seated, ordered water and we looked through the menu. Firstly, this restaurant is not French. I live in Europe and eat in Paris a lot,... More

We brunched at Ananas for Bastille Day and were delighfully suprised. The decor was classicly french and the atmosphere was chill and relaxed. The music was very mellow and suitable to the overall atmosphere of the restaurant. Seating arrangement every appropriate, however if you're a shorty like me, you may find it difficult to get up and down the stools,... More

This is my first restaurant review. It is a true account of my visit. I dined at Ananas with a work group of 15 others. Our wait at the bar was just too long. 7.30 designated sit down was actually well after 8.00 pm. We had a set group menu to choose from that was fair enough. The wait staff... More

We had lunch at the restaurant and the service was wonderful, but the food was perfect. Everyone at the table enjoyed the meal. I would highly recommend it for a moderately priced business lunch venue.
