“What a find”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

Wanted a romantic meal. Arrived at 20:30 with a reservation. Greeted with a very warm welcome and seated at a very pleasant table. The service was first rate, timely, accurate and warm. The food blew us both away. The bill ...good value. Yum Yum.

“Great food, good decor, insufficient service”
Reviewed November 19, 2012 via mobile

We (4 adults) arrived early one Friday evening without reservation but we easily seated at pleasant table (e.g. not a draft one, often left for late arrivals)
The decor was very contemporary and looked smart
The standard of the food was very good - bettered only at more expensive establishments
Unfortunately the evening was marred by a number of points:
Despite being full on a Friday evening, there was only one member of front of house, who become effectively over whelmed once the restaurant filled up
Also one of our party is allergic to cheese when the main arrived (gammon in sauce "a la campagne") - we were not sure if thee was cheese in it and asked the waitress (in French) and was told after a short delay (perhaps an abortive attempt to check with the kitchen) "I don't know perhaps you shouldn't eat it" apparently referring to the potatoes. Another member of the party tasted the potatoes which did indeed have cheese in, the gammon's sauce whilst creamy didn't appear to have cheese that evening the dinner was very ill
In summary Le St Charles has great food and decor but needs to invest in additional staff at the weekends who should understand the risk of food allergies
Will we return? Not with members of the party with food allergies

“A small friendly restaurant”

Our fifth visit, very friendly reception, well presented and prepared food.
House wine very good, all done at a very reasonable price.
Well worth a visit.

“Consistently excellent.....”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

Well, this is my third review of this restaurant in as many years and I’m pleased to say that it’s still as good. I’m still astounded that a lot of people stay in the main square for food when this is just around the corner and is a much nicer environment (for me anyway) and such good value – three fixed price menu’s, an a la carte choice and a daily special. Lovely people and great food. Plenty of beer / wine choices as well at good prices. Thanks again for a great evening.
