We were shown to a table in a virtually empty restaurant. We were given a menu and sat there for 15 minutes without any attention, we finally lost our patience and walked out

The food here is good. Unfortunately the waiter forgot us for most of the evening and served the three tables of couples around us very promptly.
When we sat down, the waiter went off to serve three tables which arrived after us with drinks and rolls, he put a bowl of exeptionally soggy indelible crisps on our table, and ignored us for 15 minutes. We were 4 adults and 2 well behaved girls, so not a difficult group to manage.
The food when we got it, was good, the interior is lovely. Don't have the crepe suzette as that was the worse part of the food.
Wish it could have lived up to the promise of the lovely building!

Lovely buzz to the restaurant and the service was fine. Menu looked good but was disappointed with small shrivelled mussels in the moules mariniere. Steak was chewy too and the kids' pasta was glutinous although their steak hache was nicer than our steak. Quite funky decor inside and had a good evening, but would not recommend the food

Good service especially considering how busy they were. Had Moules Marinere - my only gripe was the mussels were a little on the small side, but that is not the fault of the restaurant - the taste was great, as was the ambience in general!

Read reviews and were worried, but as the receptionist recommended it and lots of the restaurants were shut being a Sunday we gave it a go. Get there early we went at 7.30 by 9 it was heaving. Our service was great, the food good too. Buzzy atmosphere, not cheap but where is now a days? Homemade burger was good chips were soggy but tasty. Puds delish! Would go again.
