Excellent little French restaurant, has great character, small and intimate. First things first the service was excellent, the waitress was very knowledgeable, attentive without being intrusive. The food was exceptional made with fresh local produce. The menu was limited but to be expected when it is seasonal and it seemed as though it was probably a husband and wife team.... More

Visited on a quiet midweek night. Service and ambience was excellent, the specials board offered some great selections of French cuisine. I couldn't go past the Everything Wagyu' 600 day grain fed, 7+ marble score, it was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing. Will be organising a food and wine dinner here very soon with friends.

great atmosphere, very intimate with a little romantic feel, but im sure the amazing wine helped it to be seen in that light. limited menu, which is to be expected when you see how small the kitchen is. the meals are cooked to perfection even with a limited choice. fresh real food cooked with attention to detail. great wine list...

Let me say first that the service was fantastic. But the food was so disappointing. The lamb we had for main course was tough and tasteless! Entree was a little better but still less than I expected.

Bouchon is a small restaurant with very limited menu. Your chosen dish may be unavailable. Escargots were great with lots of flavour, served in the traditional manner. Beef dish was full of flavour but unfortunately there was more fat than meat. Creme Brûlée was quite unusual , being mainly sugar with a thin smear of custard . The service was... More

A very small intimate place, ideal for couples celebrating a special occasion. Food is hearty although not as 'French' as you might imagine. The 'special' beef dish was poorly presented and did not compare with the delicious pork dish ordered from the menu. The desserts were 'everyday' and we wished we had ordered from the tasty looking entree menu with... More

Bouchon is a lovely restaurant with a small but genuinely french menu. It is surely the best place to try snails for the first time because they are absolutely delicious and the garlic butter just cries out for bread to dunk in it. The bread isn't usually offered, but it is happily provided if you ask. The current steak special... More

A farewell lunch turned into a beautiful memory. I just wish I could afford to eat there more often.

Bouchon has a limited menu, but everything on it is beautiful. Wonderful service, relaxed and a lovely restaurant for a special evening. Must have - crème brulee!!

My wife and I have eaten at this restaurant twice. Both times we had a delightful meal. The restaurant is small, so you might check first with a booking. We enjoyed the first meal so much that we bought a gift certificate as we left! The food was excellent; the service was excellent; and you of course you pay extra... More
