“Sophisticated dining in seaside town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2011

Gendarmerie is a great place. Very city type atmoshpere and decor yet with really personal service. The food is elegant and with the kitchen semi open you can see that everything is prepared fresh. The servings don't look big but you are always full.

“Best restaurant in the area - great food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2011

If you want large platefulls of flavourless food suggest you go somewhere else but if you want quality and great service La Gendarmerie is head and shoulders above anything else we have found in the area . The menu is designed to get the best from beautifully flavoured good quality ingredients - we have tried many varied combinations and enjoyed them all

“It just gets better and better.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2011

I had a real "foodie" friend drop in for an unexpected visit yesterday, so we headed down to The Gendarmerie.
As always the service, ambience & food was spot on.
Sarah & Paul are in the running for recognition from The Mitchellin and they truly desrve it!
It really does just get better and better, my foodie pal was blown away and couldnt believe that this class of restaurant and food could be found tucked away in a small street in a seaside town.
Bring on those stars!

“Another excellent evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2011

La Gendarmerie goes from strength to strength. Excellent meal, atmosphere, lighting and service. It's a great pity it's so far from home in Bristol but it's always worth a visit. Many thanks Paul and Sarah.
