Ate here on 3 consecutive days as we thought that we were unlikely to find better food and service locally. Good ingredients, well cooked and beautifully presented.

Really good food and well catered for kids, however had to wait for two of our meals to come throughs. This shouldn't put people off as the food is really good.

Good restaurant. Went in for lunch (my wife and I and our two young kids). We were given a nice table in a quieter part of the restaurant. Service was very good, and they were as helpful as possible particularly around options for the children. The food was very nice (a mix of steak, fish and pasta across the group).... More

We sat outside in the warm evening air, relieved that somewhere was open in the French off-season. The Service was friendly if a little on the slow side, the food was local and French which was nice considering how many Italians there are! Remember that the French cook under so ask well done and you may get a medium. My... More

I think we would have enjoyed our meal significantly more if it hadn't taken an hour to produce the main dishes after we had completed our starters. I suspect the kitchen had forgotten our order as, after 40 minutes and a lot of frustrated looks from our table, the waitress asked us to confirm what we would like! I know... More

We happened across this restaurant on an evening my with friends and having spied the trip advisor sticker in the window we asked for a table. We were greeted by the owner, a lovely chap, and between my basic French and his basic English, we worked out what we'd ordered. Fish soup for starters for a couple of us was... More

We had a good meal here but it just wasn't as inspired as the food we had here last year. The restaurant is not offering as much choice as it used to. What we had was good but just not memorable. I still remember the lamb with a crust main and squid starter from the year before. I am struggling... More
