What a bit of luck - we were planning to go to the restaurant next door but noticed that this one was very popular (and on a Sunday night). So following the old rule we changed plans. Hubbie was a chef so I can report with confidence that these chefs are top notch but amazingly at a cheaper price than... More

Was really looking forward to that one. We left without eating. After 40 min of begging to order we understood that they did not need our business. They don't give a damn.

We went here for our wedding anniversary and it was brilliant!! Great food, and an amazing wine selection. The chefs are paying attention to detail and really have done a great job with their menu selection. But a big thank you to the staff who were really helpful and friendly!

Had a very enjoyable meal here. Good wine choice made for us by the sommelier. Great fun with wait staff using our French and their English! Very good food.

Visited for lunch. Greeted by very pleasant and attentive waitress who was only too happy to help explain the menu in both English and French. Good quality food and great outlook over the Baie de Orphanilat.

Poor food very average and stange flavour combinations... tandoori chicken spring roll? Side salads looking old and re used and unfortunately some staff whom have some questionable hygiene. The wine list is its only saviour.

Marmite proved to be the quintessentially French bistro dining experience that we had been hoping for during our stay.
