A charming little restaurant owned and operated by such a lovely couple. Enjoyed both lunch and dinner with friends and on both occasions the quality and presentation of the food was outstanding. A welcome addition to the wonderful restaurant scene in Cheltenham.

We saw the fantastic reviews of this restaurant and were not disappointed. We had a fabulous meal with great service and will return when we are next in Cheltenham
Considering it has only been opened a couple of months it is remarkable and I highly recommend the Fillet steak,probably one of the best I've ever had.

Thank Chris R

Went on 9th August for our 10th wedding anniversary, having seen the great reviews on here. We weren't disappointed - the food was excellent, starting with the free amuse-bouche. Very difficult to choose from the great menu! My scallops and prawn starter, pork main course (with various vegetables done in unusual ways) and crème brulee dessert were all delicious, with beautiful presentation. Elisabeth made us feel extremely welcome and there is a lovely atmosphere. It's not cheap, but you get what you pay for, so no issues on that score. We are very much looking forward to going back again the next time we have something to celebrate!

In terms of the quality of food and the service this place is a phenomenon. The menu is about as good as I have seen in similar establishments and the touch of a free appetiser was class.

The toilets are immaculate and the ambience good so it is set up for a good evening out.

The only reasons I did not give it five stars is that I thought it was just a little expensive and in terms of value for money it slips a little. That said I would most definitely recommend this restaurant if you visit Cheltenham but book ahead as the locals make good use of it but don't go if you are on any kind of budget. Website is also really good and easy to use.

Having made the trip from Leicestershire to see how Yves and Elisabeth were getting on we were very pleased to see that they had made a great start in converting the people of Cheltenham to the true French style of cooking.There can be no doubt that Yves is a very talented chef for the food we ate was nothing short of sensational and we have tasted his cooking before but he has made even more reasons to come back and eat his food.His wife and partner Elisabeth is perfect for her front of house role as everyone who enters the restaraunt is made to feel really special and all are treated as friends and nothing is too much trouble, to ensure everyone has a night they will want to repeat and they will surely tell all their friends so you had better book early if you want to eat the true french cuisine.
