Over the years I have had literally hundreds of meals in France, all bar one have been good to excellent. This was one of a handful that were exceptional. From the outside nothing marks out this restaurant from the dozens of others we looked at but having spotted the courtyard, and it being within 50 yards of the Ibis we... More

We, and our friends, have dined at several French restaurants each year for the past 30 years and they have invariably been good to excellent, occasionally memorable, so we were stunned to have one of the best meals we have ever eaten in France, or anywhere, at this unassuming little restaurant. From the outside the restaurant looks distictly unpromising and... More

We have made a special trip here about 4 times over the last 7/8 years and our recent visit on 9/9/2016 didn't disappoint us. The staff were very attentive and as we now have a 4 yr old son he was also looked after. The food was delicious, a great menu to choose and the courtyard setting still has the... More

Courtyard tables. Quite laid back atmosphere but still high quality. Not a tourist trap. Good but not special.

It's six months since I gave this restaurant a good rating. This is to confirm that it's still my favourite and I recommend you to go there if you can. You'll receive a warm, professional welcome and be treated well throughout the evening. Tonight I had the great value for money €29 menu and was over the moon! See you... More

Went there with friends tonight and really enjoyed it! Friendly waiters, delicious fish soup amuse bouche with complimentary (lovely) bread! The starter was the best (scallops), very surprising dessert - Grand Marnier soufflé - and complimentary bottle of rhum with the Baba dessert! The wine is excellent too. I didn't put 5 stars as I did not enjoy the main... More

My husband and I celebrated our wedding here with family. The staff were professional, accommodating, super helpful throughout the process of planning the evening, for which we'd arranged to secure the private room in the back of the restaurant. The night of couldn't have been better. The staff were attentive and helpful, and the service was excellent up until the... More

As a visiting teacher at the Business school, I regularly visit this restaurant and am always well received. The cuisine is of a high quality (and not too saucy!) and the menu is particularly good value for money. The decor is warm and pleasant and the noise level is low except, as elsewhere, when there is a group, but that... More

An excellent meal with very good service. One might, I think unfairly, suggest that the menu was conservative but if you want to leave having had great ingredients expertly cooked then this restaurant is superb.

One of the best meals I have had in France. We went for the set menu and it did not disappoint. The food was very fresh and in season. The outdoor courtyard is very pleasant and comfortable. Good selection of local wines at keen prices.
