“Very good including the jazz”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Small, quiet place with two guitarists playing jazz on tuesdays and thursdays. Food is French and good. Wine, expensive and not that good (but that might have been due to an error of judgement)

“Quality French food”
Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

Superb filet mignon with smoked duck breast starter and very light and fluffy chocolate mousse dessert. The prawn and scallop starter would have been just as tasty (but half the price) without the gratuitous caviar. They were out of fondant potatoes to go with the roast pork, and their credit card machine was broken, but the service and food were otherwise excellent and on a Monday night it was mostly empty.

“Great atmosphere, great value for money”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Really enjoyable, typically French, great food and price. Would recommend highly. A bit off the beaten track so easy to get a table on a Saturday night.
