“Lovely Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

We enjoyed a beautiful meal in this extremely busy Restuarant recently.
We sat upstairs with many other diners & enjoyed excellent meals with great & friendly service.
The Restuarant is in a very convenient position close to the centre of the city & plenty of car parking @ reasonable rates is just up the road.
A wide selection of entrees,wine by the glass & delectable sweets made for a lovely Saturday Evening meal with my partner.
We will certainly return to this excellent Restuarant & recommend it highly

“Sublime cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

We had a wonderful meal here and the L'Escargots and Boullabaise were to die for, truly magnificent. It was a little on the expensive side ($39 for a bottle of Jacobs Creek). The service was good, lovely place and nice atmosphere.

“Good not great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

My pork was delicious, but a friends lamb was bordering on blue and she does not like her meat under cooked. Tried absinthe which was a treat. Wine was expensive and the decor more factory than French. Waiters were wonderful.
