We ate here to celebrate my mother in law's 70th birthday - and it was wonderful! We had the set menu and the service was perfect and the food totally delicious. Pudding was amazing! I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

Delicious food located on a side street. This was a great find. It was recommended by a local person. It is owned by a husband and wife and the husband is the chef. It is not a glitzy restaurant but rather quaint and cozy atmosphere....More

Delightfully cosy restaurant run by a charming couple. She does front of house and he is the chef. The food is exquisite and beautifully presented. Well priced for very high quality produce. Service is charming and helpful.

Very quiet Monday in the snow only six customers. Host was polite and kind but not particularly 'warm and friendly' needs to be more 'outgoing' - set menu with wines was faultless in cooking and good value. Needs more ambience but food excellent.

Great little intimate restaurant. Only about 20 covers. It is run by the chef and his wife and they only do one sitting, so be ready to have a long leisurely meal. The food was of excellent quality and there was a good wine list,...More

Without a doubt one of the best meals I have ever had. This restaurant is intimate and romantic, the service is impeccable and the food simply divine. The menu is small - always a good sign - there are about 5 choices for each course....More

My wife is extremely lactose intolerant (even before it became fashionable) and because they cook to order they were able to accommodate her. As suggested above, in case you are just left with a plate of Dauphinoise potato... More
