“Great Food & Great Wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Really enjoyed the food and the pairing with the wine. Also service was great. If only it was in a nicer location so you could sit outside and enjoy the outside. Otherwise still recommend because food so good.

“Always a winner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

the food is appetising and well prepared - it does not disappoint. The wine list is refreshingly different with many new producers

Attended a bday party here and was most impressed by food and service. Perhaps, not truly a french bistro but recommended nonetheless.

“Interesting food and great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

We have been to TM a number of times and have always had a good experience. The food is excellent and always something diffferent or novel on the menu.

Parking is not great, but there are guards who can look after cars.

Also know that the owners have another resturant in Brysnston called Red Rabbit.
