Lunch. The most harried of events unless of course you have a good 60 minutes. When a friend asked for lunch here, I was anticipating was good stuff. What I definitely did not expect was awesome stuff. We had bar seats or seats with the view of the action. Highly recommend you get these seats. Not only can you watch... More

Tuna salad was a highlight, beautiful foie gras parfait, and the pigs head croquettes were really interesting in a good way. A great location. The staff were spot on.

Always a great restaurant. Great food, atmosphere and service. A reliable place I can come to and know I will like. The only downside is not being able to book for dinner.

Really good lamb shoulder and good wines. Their chocolate mess dessert is to die for!! But after all, it can be bit pricey.

Went here on a Saturday evening and managed to get a couple of seats at the bar and had a terrific dinner/evening. Note you can't book so there may be a wait for a table - we only waited around 20 mins - time for drink - and the wait was probably short as we got there fairly early -... More

Love it here - the food is so good. Gets a little busy sometimes, like frantic so you need to choose a good time. Slow cooked lamb is delicious, any soup on offer superb, always finish with a madeleine!

We ate at this restaurant as a group of 5 recently. We arrived earl - maybe 5pm - and only just managed to get a table. This place is very popular. I am real foodie but I found the menu baffling - pretentious in every sense - over complicated use of words and it isn't clear what to order. I... More

Absolutely best place to have either breakfast. Very nice atmosphere, friendly staff and good food, except for the fact that my dining companions were vegetarian and they had a limited choices.

Having dined here previously for breakfasts and dinners, we were very impressed. This time we had lunch, and were stunned by the high quality of our melt in the mouth dish. I only have two more words for you - lamb shoulder.
