Lunch 29th Oct. '14......Restful décor, good choice menu, reasonably priced, delicious food nicely presented and piping hot -- worth the wait --pleasant staff and ambience. The latter unfortunately was spoilt half way through the meal when a noisy, indeed raucous, group was seated at the next table -- however that can happen anywhere and is just a comment NOT a... More

A wonderful first time visit for me with family members who visit on a fairly frequent basis. Although I didn't have a starter, saving myself for a delicious main of duck followed by crème Brule for desert. The service and friendliness of the staff were second to none. We were not hurried although being Saturday the restaurant was filling up... More

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this bistro to anyone and we will certainly be returning. I believe that many people were celebrating special occasions but you shouldn't wait for an excuse to visit as it was great value and I believe that the main dinner menu changes on a monthly basis. The outside may not look too interesting but upon... More

It is really hard to get a table here which meant that our reservation at 9.15 was later than we would have liked. Having said that it was only booked the week before. To get a table at a more popular time such as 7.30 to 8.30 the wait would have been about 6 weeks. It was our first visit... More

This is not a negative review about the food or service which in my previous experiences has always been very good, the problem is that one is never able to book a table! Even giving many weeks or even months notice the answer always seems to be that they are fully booked. I have entered May as my last visit... More

This was our first visit and we didn't come away disappointed. Full marks to the waiter who met us on arrival, and noticing my husband uses a walking stick, immediately altered our table from the one downstairs to a ground floor one. Excellent menu choice, with two vegetarians out of the four of us choosing the mushroom main course and... More

Came here with my fiancé for my birthday meal in August. It really is a superb restaurant, fantastic service and choice of wines but the real star of the show is the food. The menu is cleverly written and there is a vast choice. We opted for the crab tian and the beef carpaccio. The crab was delicious and the... More
