This restaurant provides true experience of what French food is. At a point that we tried dish that you can sometimes hardly find in France: escalope 'duc de guise' and a soufflé. Both were delicacies, vegetables around escalope were prepared a bit lao style: successful. For desert 'creme brûlée' is worth the choice. Only thing I could be sad about would be a lack of atmosphere and waiters a bit slow.

We really like Le Vendome. You can sit inside or out, there is a varied and extensive menu, a small but reasonable wine list, and a French owner who takes personal interest in his guests. Never had a poor experience as the cooking is certainly of the French school. One warning, when ordering steaks make sure you understand that French cooking means your steak will probably be cooked differently than by international standards. If you want medium rare order medium.
Nice atmosphere, villa and garden, quaint.
Service is good depending on your server and the extent of their English, however, the owner is usually around to put things right.
Good value for money and consistent in its quality of cooking. Another unpretentious establishment that delivers a good meal and friendly surroundings.

We really enjoyed this restaurant. The food was excellent. Be aware that the sizes are very large. An entree was big enough for a main course if you are an average size eater.

Had seriously good wood fired pizza here. Very very tasty and huge - fresh toppings!

Service is slow and not with a smile though so don't go if you're in a rush!

Was very busy so no tables inside, outside terrace exceptionally hot (sat next to pizza oven too) so sweated like mad throughout as did everyone around us...bonus is free ice cold water to rehydrate when it's this hot- issue is ever getting a waitor to come outside to ask for a much needed top up!!

We really thought the food was good though so brushed aside other issues...recommend the pizzas highly!!
