For those of you whom are well traveled this restaurant creates an environment reminiscent of a 50's French Bistro in the center of Birmingham. We had booked but were offered tables either in the quieter front of house or the part of the restaurant which had a "vibe" about it. We chose the later and were not disappointed. Music being played through the meal combined with B&W movies " Saturday seemed like Marilyn Monroe night" really added to the experience. Starters which were Piri Piri Prawn and Carrot and Coriander were both excellent as were the mains which were both Moroccan Lamb were absolutely fantastic. One slight negative was that the coffee served to my partner was bitter and undrinkable...otherwise we had a very very enjoyable evening. Bill represented £37 per head and in my opinion was very good value given the quality of the food ! 5 stars ! We will be back :-)

A lovely evening for our wedding anniversary on a Friday night. The restaurant is quite unassuming from the outside but based on Trip Advisor reviews, we booked a table and were very glad we did. The staff were lovely, there were a decent amount of people there with a lovely ambience but we were not rushed even once we had finished our meals and were finishing our drinks. We both had steaks - mine the Annexe Rossini (fillet) which was delicious with a lovely sauce and cooked exactly as requested, my husband the rib eye which he confirmed was as tasty as it looked. I thought their service was great - we could always catch the waiter's eye without being constantly bombarded - perfect. It was a very enjoyable evening. It was on the expensive side but as an occasional place to go, it was perfect.

Good well presented food , nice atmosphere and friendly service. Seems a popular place for corporate or large groups so not sure it would be ideal for a quiet night out as a couple .
