The owner is a fully qualified Sommelier and can recommend wines from an extensive wine list. The food is gourmet with an excellent variety of selections. The staff are courteous, knowledgeable and efficient. All in all an outstanding dining experience.

Everything was great. We read about this place, a little off the main street. Must make a reservation, even then a wait. Really professional. Sommelier waiter and waitstaff very professional, under the watchful eye of the owner. Food was delicious, and well presented French Cuisine. Carpaccio was outstanding, as was the Foie Gras, and the Smoked Salmon. Over all a... More

Immediate attention from waiting staff which is always a good start, choice of tables offered. The wine choice is extensive, and sommelier was keen to recommend but at twice the price of the actual wine I selected. I kept to my choice which was a lovely wine. Dinner was tasty, but portions are small. I guess this may be a... More

Beautiful cosy restaurant, great food, wonderful maitre d' lady (though the Russian sommelier thought he knew everything about wine and told everyone - so just smile!), made this a perfect place to relax in the evening on our way up the west coast.

Diners between adjacent tables talked to each other at dinner.My friend had the steak which was excellent. I may have ordered the wrong items on the night we dined. I had oysters on... More
