“Back again to L'Experience !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

Once again I booked a table at L'Experience, it seems like we can't leave the Isle of Man with out dining here, it's our little treat to ourselves !

Food as per usual was excellent and when head chef Michael heard we were there, he come out to say hello and make sure we were happy with our food. This is one of the many reasons we keep going back. Overall this restaurant has excellent food, great service and 1ltr carafes of house wine . . Thanks again Michael and staff for another great night!

“Hit the spot again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

Well when we had a friend over we knew we had to bring her here.She loves french food and could not stop talking about this place after we left. The food was as good if not better than our first vist here. The service was top class. They even asked if we needed a taxi after we finnished. Love the wine here as well. Can not wait for our next vist.

“A REAL FRENCE EXPERIENCE IN THE IRISH SEA”

L'Experience has been under new management for about a year now but is just as good as ever.

The decor makes diners feel they are in the heart of France and the food is wonderfully asnd consistently good.

We would not hesitate to reciommend this resataurant and will be dining there again ourselves!
