This restaurant has a lovely outside terrace and friendly staff, unfortunately the food was just odd, We had a sort of salad crumble for starters. Sounded interesting but tasted like a dessert crumble with savoury flavours. Horible!! My wifes's beef was uncuttable and my lamb kebab on a skewer most chewy and mostly fat. Maybe we got them on a... More

About five of us booked in to the Commensal, that we had been to a long time ago when run by previous owners. The atmosphere and cuisine are now completely different and very much family and people centered. There's a good choice on the menu, sufficient for everyone, including vegetarian and child options, and a good wine list, by which... More

Enjoyed a very fine meal here owned by a nice family that made us feel very welcome. Food was well presented, fresh and very tasty. Desserts were very good! A very pleasant experience, a little on the pricy side, but could find no fault with the food. Would recommend.

Went for an evening meal. Service was very attentive and friendly. Food quality was very good and taste superb. Had two courses and opted for main course and dessert. Tiny portions and need to include more carbohydrate to enhance the main and the dessert which looked very dainty was miniscule. Fairly expensive and left hungry. Good for the waistline though....

A high chair was provided for our little grandson and our table had been reserved for us just as requested when we made the reservation by phone. Food took... More

Day 2 we had a duck salad starter, followed by Roast Beef in herb jus and a gateau and glace. Both meals were perfect and the... More

Traditional, but up to date food, using local ingredients from the market (catch the chef on a Friday in the Market and follow him around, he knows all the best places)
