“Sunday Lunch yummy yummy yummy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

We arrived to the restaurant and were greeted in a very friendly way by Mrs Raudin, we were taken to the lounge and offered a drink and given the menu to view, our drinks arrived without a wait and when ready our orders were taken, we remained in the lounge until our starter was ready we were led to the table set lovely with lovely white table cloth, napkins and the works. Dining room is lovely and very inviting. Attention to detail was great, warmed bread roll, heated plates etc.

We had Prawn cocktail to start and the prawns were large, succulent and plentiful.

Main course Lamb dinner was absolutely lovely and I have never seen such a selection of vegetables on a sunday lunch in any restaurant ever. I asked for additional gravy as I like lots and I received a very friendly no problem at all reply. Food was of an excellent quality and cooked very well.

Did not have any room for afters maybe next time as I will without doubt be back in the very near future.

Mr Raudin came out to have a chat to us after the meal which I thought was a lovely personal touch.

It is a very much hidden gem in Hartlepool and if you haven't been already why not, you are missing a treat.

Prices are excellent. go on take a look you won't be disappointed.

“Excellent French food in Hartlepool”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

We visited Raudin's largely on the basis of some of the excellent reviews right here on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed in any way. The Hostess was friendly and made us feel at home, the food was outstanding, as good as we have had in our, albeit inferquent, visits to Paris. The Chef came out to meet his customers and chat. All in all a great culinary experience. We will be back.

“Simply Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2012

I visited here with my brother and his wife. We were immediately were greeted with a friendly welcome and taken through to a lovely relaxing lounge to browse the menu. After placing our order, we were shown to our table . All dishes were of the best quality , in fact I have not tasted better in any other restaurant in Hartlepool . If you are looking for excellent food at a very reasonable price, forget the marina and come here ! I shall certainly be returning very shortly .
