“Enjoyable Dinner”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

The food at Le Virage is very good. The restaurant is quaint and fairly small, but this is fine. It's a kind of a mix of a Dutch building, with French food. I liked it. We were seated no problem without a reservation, and the service was good. The waitress that served me spoke good English too. I wasn't offered an English Menu, so I assume that they don't have one. Ambiance was good and a very relaxed atmosphere was all around. There was a slightly longer wait in between first and second course than I would have expected as there were very few diners. But it wasn't uncomfortably long. I had Bouillabaisse to start and it was very very good. Then Veal with Goose Liver. That was great too. Generally, a good choice and I would recommend this restaurant is you are in the area. There are a lot of what i assume would be other quality restaurants just very close by, so you have to be good just to stay open I would guess.

“Wonderful food with great flavours”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Unassuming restaurant, we called in on the off chance that they had a table for four. A drink at the bar while a table was prepped provided a very nice glass of merlot and beer served in wine glasses. Set menu and a la carte available. Sole, scampi and beef steak starters were delicious, fresh and full of flavour. Sole, veal and duck mains were outstanding. Two who chose a la carte were too full to try the desserts but we who had the dessert were treated to a plum and apple tart that was fresh and full of flavour. All the food was cooked specifically for us, so there was no rush. A lovely atmosphere with friendly service. A must visit restaurant.

“Great place to watch the world go by”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Le Virage is at a junction and there are a group of restaurants here, so there's a great atmosphere before you sit down. The menu is extensive and everything we had was tasty. We draw particular attention to the tempura scampi starter, but it was all good, and the waitresses are charming and friendly. Again, there is a special menu of the week which is worth looking at if you want to be economical. These are not smaller portions, just a reduced price for selecting from a smaller list.

“Wow.”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

I went here for a work dinner and had a fixed menu, but it was so good. I had the bacon and egg salad, scampi risotto, DELCIOUS chips, and a fabulous icecream sunday. With flowing wine, great service, central location, and a local-feel, I would definitely go back eat here.
