“Wonderful food !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

I had the pleasure of visiting this restaurant on Saturday night with my wife. The waiter and staff are extremely friendly if a tad eccentric but we liked him.

The food was a complete surprise for such an unassuming establishment, blends of flavours and a varied menu you'd be hard pushed to beat in a Central London or Paris location.

This is the place to take friends and family to show off that "you know a little French place"!

“A truly delightful cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012 via mobile

Lovely interior with plants, pretty lights and most importantly pictures of the 'dog smoking'. Very friendly welcome, such a cosy feel.
The menu displayed outside the venue looked very good, but once inside the specials menus was amazing. It was in French, therefore translated for us. The cost of the food is moderate with starters from £4 and mains from £9.
I had duck for main course with was sliced by the waiter.... Excellent touch! Husband had lamb, both dishes were exquisite
Upon a first glance at the wine menu I though it looked a bit pricy, but upon examination, it is not... You pay for what you get a lovely Choice.
Appeared to be just one chef and a waiter. Would recommended for a chilled out evening with a delightful cuisine

“Stop talking about your family!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

The owner has a kick out of talking to guests while they are trying to enjoy dinner. Food mediocre. One man show, so patience is needed. Patrons with very young baby's makes you wonder whether it's a nursery or a restaurant (for dinner). Nope, not again.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

Wonderful food, very tasty. French chef, veg from Luigi's allotment. Decor is like someone's Grandma's house, but the food makes up for it. If it was modernised and in a busier location there would be a 3 month waiting list for a table as the food is gorgeous, just like the food served in a wonderful restaurant in Italy or France. Not cheap but worth it, highly recommended.

“Really French ?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012

The food is quite good, but is it really french ? The maître d'hôtel is perfect in his very personnal style. A funny evening to spend (however they should change the music) in a "rustique" restaurant.
