Come here every year this is now the 5th we are with our French family who rated this place very highly. As usual the food is first class, the staff fantastic. The price is more than reasonable. What more could you ask for - just got it to be closer tho home.

Hadn't been to this small restaurant before but went along for lunch with 2 friends as it had been recommended to us by another friend. Wasn't busy but we had been told to book so were seated right away. Service was excellent and meal was very good. Parking might be a problem if the restaurant is busy as it is... More

Portions were bigger... More

Absolutely fantastic food, I had 'Cajun Spiced Breast of Chicken with Pilaf Rice and a Thai Style Curry Sauce' which was insanely amazing! We were booked in at 6pm and the staff were very friendly, great with our 4 year old and extremely tentative. When our main meals came it got quite hot and the staff were more then happy... More
