From the setting to the staff, this quirky French is just a great independent of which Richmond is lucky to possess. From the different "cidres" to coin a phrase to the great galettes if you are just popping in for a quick lunch, it's a fun place. Yes it can be quirky but that's the charm, it's French!! Great steak frites as well and good portions. The snails a are also wonderful. Recommended as one of Richmonds top places.

Lovely crepes and galettes, it is the ideal place if you want a full meal or just a lite one, you can have a crepe and a beer or a full dinner/lunch with lovely Breton cider or excellent wines.
Nice atmosphere and lovely service from the maily french staff, Francois is fantastic, worth the trip alone. You need to book.

Very surprised to read negative reviews of this restaurant. We last went there about 15 months ago and had not been able to return until last weekend (8th Dec) The last time we had Italian foodies with us and they thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our latest visit ellicited the same response from our four well travelled and experienced companions. Service good and food excellent.

The food is french, as are most of the staff, but don't let that put you off. The food and wine are of a very good standard and its not that expensive.

We happened upon this place after someone in our group recommended it. Inside looks cozy and inviting though small. We went in absolutely starving and were seated immediately. overall it was pretty busy. It then took us 10 minutes of flagging down the waiter to take our order. He didn't write anything down which could be impressive if he was that good, but he wasn't. Later we were told the waiter we had was new thus explaining our mixed up order.
Two of us clearly ordered french onion soup and were brought two fish soup after waiting 30 minutes.. during that wait we had to chase up the order to find out when it was coming.

After the mistake was identified we asked for all of our food to be brought together as our other companions were famished. This didn't happen - they took another 10 minutes to bring the correct soups while our friends sat and waited for their mains another 20 minutes. We asked for bread to fill the gap and that took 10 minutes before we were told it was in the oven and was never brought to us. We were served the mains 50 minutes after sitting down.

No apology. We asked for something to be taken off the bill and were told OK yet the bill was given to us unchanged until we insisted again.

Food was nice but the service and wait was painful. Go somewhere else to spend your money.
