Our night here started off on a disappointing note, however the food made it worth while. After deciding what we wanted to order, the waiter came over only to inform us that a number of the main menu items (the ones we wanted) were unavailable and that his colleague had forgotten to tell us. It would have been useful to... More

The tables are just too small and too close together. While the Goat's Cheese Souffle was good the scallops were drowned by a strong and unpleasant "chorizo vinaigrette". The risotto was pleasant but ordinary and the shoulder of lamb did not bring the expected flavour. A disappointing experience.

This tiny bistro has a great vibe - warm and inviting, a bit of bustle, but we could still be tucked away in a corner for a romantic dinner. Wait-staff were helpful and friendly, and as we had a tight deadline (seeing a show that night), they made sure we were served and happy with plenty of time. The dishes... More

Great fresh, delicious French food, and good service. Generous portions. We ate everything, if only we could have licked the plates. We noticed as we left, that no one had left any food on their plates. Good ambience, and friendly efficient staff. We will return again for a second time in a week.

The food was very satisfying and the service was efficient which was a relieft as we were pre theatre diners. We both felt very satisfied as we do when enjoying such good fare. Entrees of seafood soup - very flavoursome & Goats cheese and... More

Stopped in here for lunch. Had been waiting to do so all week. I had the olives as a starter, nice bread and a marvelous bordeaux. The Beef Bourguignon melted in my mouth. It was very filling so I had no room for dessert which was a bit of a disappointment to me as I am sure they are delicious.... More
