This could so easily be in France!

I first came here 7 years ago and was delighted that it was still here and still owned by the same people. The quiche was probably the best I have ever tasted, and the steaks were done to perfection.

I first came here 7 years ago and was delighted that it was still here and still owned by the same people. The quiche was probably the best I have ever tasted, and the steaks were done to perfection. An excellent and inexpensive bottle of wine complemented the meal. There is nothing to fault here - highly recommended!

Service great and friendly. The food is well presented and very good, typical french bistro. The ambiance is warm and welcoming, even the music is french. A place to go to if you like french food with its ambiance. We enjoyed it very much and will comeback,

The Food here is amazing, from starter to main course & dessert, staff give us thoughtful suggestion when selecting what to have, superb service provided. The ambience was cozy & lovely French interior design. A surprise brownie cake for our 24th Anniversary celebration.

Had dinner there a few times. Can't remember the boss' name but he was quite attentive on those times when he wasn't busy in the kitchen.
