As a local I frequently visit this restaurant and am never disappointed! The chef is french so it is authentic french food, and he always speaks to you personally to check you enjoyed your meal - a gem up north in Wick don't miss it!

When we lived in Wick the Bord De L'Eau restaurant didn't exist, so on a recent trip "home" to Wick we decided a "treat" was in order. I am disabled, and on seeing us approach the restaurant, the lovely young waitress came and opened the doors for me. The service continued in the same friendly and helpful way. The food was delicious, the three fruits sorbet being the best sorbet I've ever tasted..and I've eaten a lot of sorbets!!! The chef had a "blether" after our meal, making dining there feel very personal. We would return both to Wick and the Bord De L'eau.

The food was really good but unfortunately the service let it down. We phoned to book and were told that it was very busy and could only do in half an hour. We got there and all night there were a number of empty tables. We were given the wine menu, ordered wine and were given it and were told that the food menus would be with us soon. A bit strange not to be given the menu when we sat down. We got the menus 15 mins later and then got asked in under a minute if we were ready to order! Ready to order after a while we were then told what we wanted to order was not available. Would have been good to know this earlier! There were various tables sitting uncleared whilst the staff were chatting. At the end the very polite chef came out to ask about the meal which was very good, oysters and lobster, and showed that he was making an effort and wanted his food to be enjoyed. To sum up, great food but poor service.

Was in Wick for one night on way to Orkney, went out in the evening for something to eat and how glad we are that we found this lovely restuarant. The food was excellent and the service very good and staff were friendly. This is definitely worth a visit

We ate here last night, expecting great things having so many good reviews. The service was v slow, we sat for 50 minutes with nothing to eat, no bread or anything, the waitresses were really slow to bring the menus and take drinks orders. When the food did arrive it was pretty good with the exception of the prawn salad which was made with tiny frozen prawns.
