Great place. Reminded us all of our time in Paris last year. Good times. The Chèvre salad was amazing. Rib eye for three main and boy had lamb cutlets "best ever, amazing".

Took my partner there for her birthday. We had a great evening. The restaurant has a very old school French ambience to it, reminiscent to number of places we dined in Paris last year. The food was excellent and the service was warm and attentive.More

Dear James, Thank you for your comments, I am glad that you enjoyed the starters, but also sad that the meat wasn’t to your expectations. The duck pie is an interpretation of the beef Parmentier, which is usually appreciated, although we had a few remarks...More
