This is a tourist restaurant no doubt; but actually it does a really good job. Our food was surprisingly good, the service was excellent and the view is great. If I had a complaint it would be that the wine is a bit pricey, but...More

Visited this restaurant on a weekend away with Wasps rugby team. Looking for somewhere to eat and the menu outside looked just the job. Staff were great in getting us seated and despite my poor French we got through the menu and ordered. The 2...More
