First to say that this is a small bistro rather than a posh restaurant. The French owners initially had opened a small cafeteria next door and put a lot of personal work in order to repair and decorate the current establishment. They managed to create an authentic small cosy bistro, with a personal touch. The owners are very chatty, warm and friendly. The older is the chef, and the younger is the waiter, so if you experience any problem, you can talk directly to them and they will make sure to rectify it. The friendly non-pretentious atmosphere is a very big plus, because I've been to French establishments in central London and they are awfully pretentious.

The menu caters for every budget: there are expensive dishes served in the evening, but also English dishes and breakfast served all day! You can have English breakfast, omelettes, or French variations of poached eggs, well-priced, good portions, moist, and grease-free. It's this menu flexibility that makes the place humble and accommodating, but maybe puts off those who seek gourmet French cuisine.

If you visit during the weekend, booking is recommended, as the place is small and can be very busy.

Went here a couple of weeks back and was not disappointed after reading all the great reviews! Did not realise they do not have a drinks licence yet, but this was soon remedied by a quick trip to the shops. Lovely young girl waitress and the guys who owns it was also very pleasant.
The food was amazing, there was 6 of us eating and everyones dishes were lovely, no complaints from anyone!
Would recommend this restaurant without hesitation!

The reason I like this place is because it's friendly, down to earth and honest. It's a humble setting, so don't get your glad rags on, but if you just want to go to a place 'where everybody knows your name' then this is it. The service is very personable and a breath of fresh air from the soulless chains you get on the high streets these days. The food is varied and tasty with good quality ingredients and an extensive menu during the day and more distinctly French menu in the evening. Some of the items on the evening menu (namely the specials) are pretty pricey (£23 for a Fillet Steak, £17.90 for Confit Duck) so they need to be excellent every time, which occasionally they aren't. But overall the food is very good and the atmosphere is relaxing and enjoyable. If you weren't happy with anything on the night they would certainly bend over backwards to rectify it. We will certainly be going back (as we already have done several times!)

I have been to this restaurant several times and never been disappointed, so booked it to celebrate my birthday with 20 friends and yet again was not let down. Kev and Pascal will bend over backwards to accommodate any requests, food is exceptional and I love the simple charm of this restaurant. Thank you both for making my birthday special and stress free, can't wait to come back again
