“Good French food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

The menu is very different to what you get elsewhere. Efficient service and good food. We've been going there for years and always enjoy it. I don't like them filling up my glass, prefer to do that myself. Always good range of seafood, which we like.

“Highly recommend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014

Had a gorgeous lunch at La Mere Zou yesterday. It's a tiny little place but has such a lovely atmosphere.
Food was beautifully cooked and presented, so many thanks to the chef.
Lovely staff and especially the maitre d who was a charming chap and very friendly.
My husband and I had a really lovely lunch and we would highly recommend.

Lovely meal in a nice relaxed atmosphere. I would recommend both the chicken and the apple tarte tartan.

“Intimate, popular”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

This is one classy French restaurant in which as a lone female diner you feel as important as couples or groups. It is very small which lends an air of intimacy but I like that and makes it cosy. It's not cheap but it's worth every cent for unusual food/flavour combinations. I had the scallops followed by halibut. It's relaxed and comfortable and never fails to accommodate me when I drop in on the off chance. I love it.
