Excellent small plates, try the mussels, snails or tomato salad. Service was not good once order was taken. Plates not cleared, dessert menu not delivered when requested, so we skipped it. But yummy.

We booked a table for 6 at the last minute and from the initial e mail the team were very responsive to our request. We had a very long lunch with plenty of courses and plenty of wine. The food choices are excellent and cater for all tastes (we had a vegetarian in our group). We all found it difficult... More

A smashing restaurant with a wide choice of super dishes for a food-loving coeliac. It's tapas style, unusually, so you can get to enjoy 3 or 4 shared, different dishes with a friend. We loved the selection - smoked salmon risotto, chicken au vin with garlic mash, duck confit and vegetables in a yummy sauce , pork in cider, .....,... More

A friend and I had dinner here earlier this week, and can honestly say the food couldn't have been finer. There were plenty of absolutely delicious Gluten-free choices for coeliacs, too. Even though a Monday evening, this restaurant was far quieter than it should have been, and the young lady who waited on us was charming, intelligent, most helpful and... More

Great service with fantastic service. We have eaten here on several occasions and it never disappoints. You need to bear in mind that this is the French version of tapas as the portions are not large but the price of each dish reflects this. Between the three of us we had different dishes for sharing. They were all fantastic but... More

We are regualr visitors to this restaurant - usually for pre-theatre dinner as we were on this occasion. However, whether you are there early or late, for lunch or dinner the food is excellent along with the service. The restaurant is usually full - but that makes no difference the food arrives hot, served with a smile and is also... More

It's the second time I've been here and I have been really impressed both times. The food was delicious, and the service was excellent and very friendly. As we had a graduate in the group they even gave us a free glass of fizz each. Would highly recommend for any occasion.

Love this place. Good selection of tasty dishes. We both had the pre theatre 2 small dishes plus side special. Loved it. The wines we ordered were lovely. Eton Mess dessert to complete a great meal. Friendly staff and not overly expensive.

We had a terrific dinner there, with a nice carafe of wine, for under 50 pounds for two. The menu has a variety of dishes, so everyone can find something to love.
