I have eaten at this restaurant many times and the lasange is usually a meal with a rich sauce, full of mince beef and pasta strips and excellent. Today 4th July it was absolutely aweful. It felt you were just eating tasteless pasta with hardly any beef mince and a dreadful sauce. I am going to write to the proprietor... More

Never expected to find such a nice place for breakfast. Best coffee I've bought in ages, The plum tart was as good as many I've sampled in Germany

I have visited this restaurant/cafe several times since I first discovered it. It has become a local lunch time favourite. It has such a lovely atmosphere. It is like a cafe which serves from a menu as well as several hot cooked meals and salads, pulses, drunks and cakes. To date I have tried their stuffed peppers, vegetarian lasagne, fish... More

An imaginative Valentine's menu (fixed price but a good choice for each course). The atmosphere is a little lacking but the friendly service makes up for that.

The food was okay, although because it needed to be reheated it was a little dry. But the staff were very rude.

On two occasions now I've had reason to go in asking for a glass of water and both times this was provided with grace and generosity. As well as taking advantage of their free water, I've also recently eaten lunch here. It was tasty and hearty fare and again there was a real sense of care, in both the quality... More

A little slice of Paris in Cambridge. Great walk-in/take away food. Staff really efficient nd just that little bit disorganised to remind you this isn't a franchise burger bar. Ideal for coffee and a breakfast bacon baguette or a business lunch in a quiet corner in the cellar. Great fun - recommended

Came in late Friday without a reservation but got a table easy for 3 of us. 2 of us had the venison fillet and 1 had the steak. It's was £8.95 on the set menu for a main course. The meat was all cooked perfectly and came quickly. Would go back again.

We had a wonderful meal with such a lovely french waitress who was so attentive and friendly. The food was cooked to perfection and nicely presented. We will definitely be back.
