My wife and I have been to French Connection several times and we are never disappointed. The atmosphere is lovely and Didier and his staff make sure everyone is looked after from the time of arriving to the time to depart. The food is not strictly French but it does have French influences in places such as moules marinières as one of the starters. We often judge a restaurant by the quality of the vegetables served and the French Connection is second to none in this area. An ample variety of vegetables arrive at the table served in piping hot dishes inside wicker baskets which make it easy to hand them around the table without burning one's hands. The portion size is often amazing and there can be no-one who leaves still feeling their appetite has not been fulfilled.
To give an idea of cost, we paid a total of about £60 for starters, mains, deserts, coffees and wine. If there is any snag at all it's the location which is at a busy road junction, but providing you're not close the window it's not a problem: in fact it can be quite entertaining at times watching the comings and goings of people to the pizza emporium opposite.

The food was absolutely amazing, perfect balance of flavors and really generous portions. My partner and i couldn't believe how many vegetables came with the meal, those would have cost a small fortune on their own if ordered in another restaurant! The waiter was extremely attentive and friendly. I will be returning many many times.
