“Good food - surly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

Had a nice lunch here but having just driven over from Switzerland we were reminded of the hideous surly service that you have to endure at any quality French restaurant. Guys, it's simply not necessary. Please learn something from the Swiss - they make you feel welcome!

“Heavenly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

We had a most fantastic meal in a lovely warm and cosy environment. The food was spectacular. We chose the 43 euro menu and were not disappointed. The menu is only in French but the waiter speaks fantastic English so it is all clear. We didn't make a reservation but I recommend that you do. Can't wait to come back!

“Birthday Party Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

First the negatives - We had booked for 9 with a young child for a big birthday party, pre-christmas. On checking the week before, the booking had been lost, no problem as we remade the booking, but had to confirm this 3 times! I suppose a big party. There was no high chair, as you might expect in a restaurant of this quality as they are probably not used to children, we took our own.

Now the positives - we had the large table upstairs that we had asked for, it is much better for a larger party. We had a mixture of à la carte and the menu. The starters were varied and a good range of choice and were excellent. The main course of lamb was really excellent and to be recommended. Interesting vegetables, a mix of crosnes and other root vegetables, delicious. Cheese plate, 3 very good local cheeses, the local goat's cheese really good. Dessert was a birthday cake which was fun and a special!

The wine list is good and not overpriced.

Good wine list, nice selection of dishes, food fresh and tasty. The big table upstairs was perfect for our group of 8.
