“Lovely staff, fantastic atmosphere & pretty good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

This place is a winner simply by virtue of the staff and ambience. The owner went out of his way to accommodate us given he was fully booked on a rainy Saturday evening. The waitresses were equally as helpful and everyone is French adding to the atmosphere. Good French fare!!

“Highlight gastro experience of the trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012 via mobile

We were here as part of a group and had wine and fondue as part of a multi site dinner. This restaurant was the highlight of the night.
Wonderful food experience with a delicious wine match. Service was personable And friendly. the owner checking in also and explaining some of the food.
Nice solo live performer playing jazz At a volume that wasnt imposing.
Even with a performer the ambient noise was such to allow easy conversation.
We will be coming back next time we are down.

“Poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012 via mobile

I used to love this place and would come often for coffees, pastries or creme brûlée. The service used to be friendly and warm.
The last three visits this year have been terrible. I had a creme brûlée that had the consistency of scrambled eggs, the waiter never checked back do it wasnt until we got up and paid at the counter was I able to complain. I had not eaten it as it was so poor, they did quickly run over to the table to check that my complaint was justified and I was not charged. Which is fair seen as I had not been able to eat my meal, but had I been given the chance I would have liked to have ordered something else.
The next visit with my husband we were spoken to in such an abrupt and rude manner by the female owner of the business that we were almost in shock. How could someone be so rude to a customer is beyond me.
The third time I was with friends for a afternoon tea and again we were treated rather rudely. They took our coffee orders at the table but made us order our cakes at the counter?? Soon after receiving our meals there was a lot of noise made by rearranging all the tables around us. Made us feel like we were intruding.
It is sad when something that was so good is now so poor. I won't be back.
