Classic french dishes, friendly service. Out of the way location in charming cobbled street. Food good quality bistro staples with authentic french flavours, one or two other mediterranean dishes as well. Bouillabaisse, french onion soup, toulouse sausages all great, the creme brulee exceptional. Small restaurant.

We made a telephone dinner booking for Wednesday 23rd November which was accepted. But on arrival the restaurant was closed. Inquiring about this the next day i was told that "we are not open on Wednesday evenings". The website says otherwise. What is going on?

Very intimate small Bistro in Harrogate town centre. Went here for Lunch and Dinner and really couldn't fault it. The lunchtime set menu I thought was really good value. I had the French Onion Soup and Toulouse sausages for lunch, and the Bouillabaisse and Lamb Shank for Dinner. All were really tasty. My wife had the fillet steak for Dinner,... More

Had a fantastic night at Timberlake's last night. My rib eye steak was cooked to perfection with the best chips I have ever had. The restaurant was buzzing. Will be back soon.

We were rather looking forward to dinner at the restaurant on a Thursday evening in November, but were sadly disappointed when we arrived to find that it was closed. This was despite their website telling us that they were open until 21.00. We understand that opening times can change for a number of reasons, but please, please keep the website... More

Dear customer I'm very sorry that we had to disappoint you by having our restaurant closed on Thursday. We were expecting a birth of our first child and now we got a beautiful baby girl Matilda. We did leave a note in the window that explained the reason for closing. Unfortunately we did not have a time to update every... More

We were spending the weekend in Harrogate and spotted this place on Trip Advisor. We had never come across it before, despite knowing Harrogate quite well. We booked and were glad we did as it filled up quickly. It's quite a small place and rustic, with wooden tables, floor, candlelit etc so a nice atmosphere. However, it was the food... More
