The mussels and frites are to die for. Our whole evening was superb with attentive but not intrusive service and great ambience. If you are pining for a taste of France without the travel and cost then wing your way down here!

Fab restaurant you have to try french onion soup, all the fish dishes, minute steak, chocolate mousse, everything really. On Mothersaday they excelled themselves not only providing the most fab adult food but also catered for small children, providing kids with garlic bread and freshly fried home made chicken nuggets/breasts or anything that they wanted.

Prawn Cocktail fab, the Marie Rose sauce was even better than mine!!
Duck and orange pate, well what can I say, I bought some today on the basis that my daughter loved it, sorry to say that the supermarket can't do it as well!! The roast beef, roast spuds and the mustard sauce and the extra gravy were fantastic.

Many thanks for a fab mothersday, I have already booked for next year.

If you haven't already visited L'Experience,then should go there asap.
Belinda & Michael Thankyou for Mothersday and for all the times we eat at L'Experience

I was luckily recommended to this restaurant by a local resident as I might have passed it by without trying it out. It is just up a road at the far end of the promenade and initially does not look gourmet. Once inside however there is a truly French atmosphere and a very good choice of food which was excellently prepared and served and was very good value. It does not open on a Tuesday.
