This is a brilliant place to eat if your ever in Limerick. Lots of fabulous food with a French flavour. It's the first place I book when I know I'm staying for a day or two. Recommend that you book early especially at weekends as the place is so popular.

We visited the French table last Saturday night. It was very busy. We were seated straight away and were made very comfortable. We had a lovely bottle of red wine. The food was very good and the vegetables were fantastic

I give 4 stars because it was pricey and the chicken dish needed more flavor, as did the escargot...needed more garlic. But order the rabbit...the ragout is delicious and the potatoes amazing! The server (friend of Berit's but his name escapes us) was delightful!

And why wouldn't it be when the chef and owner is French!! Great location on the river and the decor is contemporary and stylish. The menu is quite French and the wine list pretty decent. We got a wine recommendation from the chef himself as he had personally selected all the wines and knew them intimately. We ordered the French... More

Excellent food cooked by the owner the French chef. His Irish wife is front of house and she is so welcoming. Highly recommended and it has won numerous awards for its excellent dishes
