Loved the Friday night supper club with great tasting food. Cosy and intimate atmosphere upstairs. Friendly and efficient staff with a star of a chef patron! Lovely and warming on a winter's eve.

I fell in love with this place as soon as I walked through the door! Such a shame I was alone! The tartiflette was amazing, it reminded me of a cold brisk winters day on the slopes, always my favourite lunch! ( this was better, thank you Pascal)! I shall return with someone special!

Oh, boy! oh wow! What a find on our last day, another on of those places where 'we;ll just pop in for tea and cake' and get sucked in by the menu! Tea & cake ? yeah as if! Soup de Poisson (fish soup for the connaisseurs) and a glass of wine was the midday our feast, and it was... More

This is a curious little place run by a Frenchman who has been here for years. Light lunches have a slightly French flavour and are matched by the background music which was playing French chansons when we visited. The cassoulet however is more like baked beans with sausage. The Tartiflette, a sort of melted cheese and potato bake, is fairly... More

Weymouth is hardly short of places to eat, and we found this one purely by chance. But what a really good place it turned out to be. Great atmosphere, very tasty food, and excellent friendly owner and waiter. Go for it !

Exactly as the Cafe's name says you can get an excellent cup of tea (and coffee) here and some delicious homemade cakes too, but the café's name is a bit of a misnomer as there is so much more to be had here. Try a light lunch. The owner is French and adds his own Gallic twist to some of... More

This is a little cafe by the harbour that does the most lovely crab sandwiches ever! It is quite a small menu but everything is freshly cooked and prepared. I am looking forward to trying an evening meal there which I understand they do a couple of days a month.

We came initially just for a drink and ended up having lunch and it was exquisite. The trout and leek crumble just melted in the mouth. The crab sandwiches were excellent. The tartiflette was extremely good. Pascal is a great host and always so charming. The cakes are really good and well worth trying, especially the Dorset apple cake with... More

Having enjoyed sandwiches here in the past, we returned to try their cooked food. A main course of Duck Confit was a little dry and would have been so much better with some form of sauce, perhaps with lentils. Nevertheless, at £8.95, it still offered excellent value. The high point of the meal was certainly the Tarte Tatin. It was... More
