“Great lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

Went on a weekend afternoon, lovely sunny terrace, great value lunch menu (really generous portions for a lunch menu), lovely wine and cocktails and the service was fantastic (girl who looked after us was really attentive, great at recommending dishes). Would thoroughly recommend!

“Magnificent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

Loving the food and drink on offer, Le Truc has never let me down, be it breakfast, dinner, a date or just chilling at the bar. The staff are attentive and Dannie's service is second to none

“Fabulous find!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

Didn't even know this place existed, tucked away in the Arcadian, but went here with friends who had told us how good it was....however, it exceeded our expectations! We went for Sunday lunch, had moules marinières to start and a delicious traditional roast beef for main. Quality, presentation and service second to none. Good value for money too. We will definitely be back to try more from the eclectic menu.

“Fall in love!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

We first discovered Le Truc hidden away at the Arcadian a year ago and since then we have become regulars of this fabulous restaurant. The restaurant has a stunning, ever changing a la carte menu with a good range of both traditional French and innovative dishes. Unlike the same old tiresome Cafe Rouge and its lack of imagination, the chefs at Le Truc consisently deliver on quality, freshness and inspired dishes. Whether a simple pear and caramelised walnut salad, delicious moules, perfectly cooked fish dishes or fabulous meats, you will never be disappointed here. In addition to the a la carte menu, there are fantastic bar grazers and an amazingly priced two course lunch menu which always has a fine choice of four starters and four mains, priced at a very reasonable £10.95. Even at this price there is no compromise on quality or portion size. Not only is the food a thing of delight, the staff are so welcoming and always make you feel very special, with recommendations on both food and drinks. And finally to the bar! An awesome array of varied and intriguing drinks are on offer, including quite probably the best and most humorous cocktail menu I have ever seen! Word of warning don't have too many, I nearly got into a fight in the supermarket afterwards (and I'm a pacifist! ) I love Le Truc ♥ and you should too!
