This restaurant is run by Lawrence, who's wife runs the Cle de Voute. The atmosphere is lovely and the cuisine Franco-Marrocain. We started with a kir melon - which we'd never had before - melon licquor which we will find back in France or Belgium. Delicious. For starter we shared a tomato tarte and the avocado salad, both of which were well-presented and tasted fabulous. For main course, I chose the magret de canard - beautifully tender duck served perfectly with apples in cinnamon. However, the same problem occurred with the lamb as at their other restaurant - one piece was fine, another tough, the third inedible. Again, they reduced the price and explained that there was a problem with the quality at the moment - it was a shame though - especially twice with the same team. Do remember that if you want to enjoy your meal, you do need to ask them to give you a break between courses. Otherwise, you will find your main course arrives a few minutes after you have finished the starter. This is not an issue with the restaurant at all but it seems that some people want to eat and go - a shame in such a pleasant atmosphere!
