“Sounded charming but wasn't”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

This sounds like a great place," small, situated in an old house, authentic creole dishes, owner entertains etc.." Well I guess on the surface these are true statements. We had the same experience as another reviewer with being sent back outside to re-park the car straighter - and we were the only car in the lot. Atmosphere is tacky at best - overly bright , lots of plastic accessories. The food was nothing special and mightily overpriced. We had some fish dishes that certainly didn't show and special skill in preparation or presentation. Very bland and cold to boot.

“Over Priced for standard of Food. Owner only wants your cash”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2011

On Arrival we were greeted in our car in the car park by who seem to be the owner. He was very concerened we would take up too much space with our hire car and helped us keep tight to a wall. ( we were early as we have a 3 year old son)
We were seated in no time and they were very keen to take our order before we could review the menu in full. We got 1 starter . 2 adult main courses and an infant main course. I infant ice cream. 2 cocktails , 1 beer and 1 wine . All in €83. The standard of the meat (chicken mostly bone)and the Veg not so fresh. My wife said the fish was okay.
The live music was good I will say that. The waiting staff I feel were under pressure from the owner to get us out so he could have his table. On paying and getting up to leave we past the owner on the way out and he did not even agknowlege us .
