This is a fantastic restaurant underground just off the main square. Although it is unassuming from the entrance it is gorgeous once you are downstairs. The lighting is warm and intimate and the exposed stone arches are beautiful. I had the lamb fillet which was full of flavour with no fat or gristle with a stack of potato which was... More

Lovely underground restaurant, staff very welcoming and helpful. Good choice of food and tasty at that. The dessert trolley is amazing. Can't believe how good the prices were too.

Very nice food, if a little bit classy for a lunch! I would say dinner would be better. This place is in a cellar, very atmospheric and food is delicious.

Visited here 13 Jan as a party of eight. Having eaten here on 2 previous occasions and been delighted we were all very disappointed in our meals. Despite the restaurant being empty the food seemed to take a age to come out, when it did it certainly wasn't worth the wait. Four of us ordered fillet steak, 3 of us... More

Having tried and eaten traditional Polish cuisine we thought we would give a French inspired restaurant a try. We weren't disappointed. A lovely atmosphere and delicious bouillabaisse for me and seafood risotto for my husband. Desserts were too good to miss. Lovely attentive waitress. We will look at staying in the adjoining rooms on a future visit.

I had a birthday celebration. It was superb. From a late lunchtime start. We spent several hours enjoying a memorable afternoon. Food is a mix of French with Polish influences. . Served with perfect presentation in the French style of small but perfectly balanced intense flavours. A great wine selection and spirits later on after the extensive desert trolley. .... More
