We visit this restaurant every couple of months and really enjoy what they offer. The food is always well prepared and generally fresh. The service is excellent and just the right amount. Well done to Pierre and his team they are doing a great job, we will be back.

Friendly atmosphere with well executed meals. Generous portions and good quality produce used. It does feel like an evening out and the selection on the menu is varied.

Wow, is the word I would use. Service, food and affordability are all the words you can use to explain Henri's. Chatting with owner Pierre who has years of ownership experience , you understand why Henris is the place to eat. He is passionate and "on the floor at all times". We had the duck liver and a trio for... More

Henri's has a cosy, yet upmarket comfortable atmosphere with attentive and friendly staff. Enjoyed the three course winter special meal. Wonderful for special occasion or just meeting a friend and enjoying some good food.

The atmosphere and layout of Henri's is great. The only problem was that the fillet steak we ordered was very dry and tasted like it was done on coals.

Friendly welcoming host - excellent attentive service. Asian Trio starter is a must. Steak was cooked to perfection - deboned neck of lamb was the best we ever had - what can I say about the pork belly - yummy yummy! Delicious chocolate fondant with perfect oozing centre. No corkage charged. Pure bliss.
