Excellent restaurant which never disappoints. Friendly staff to look after you and the chef will always come out when you leave to say goodbye (and allow you to comment if necessary). You will always remember your visit as a good night out here.

Lovely Spanish style restaurant with husband (chef) and wife team. Good menu choice and beautifully cooked. Vegetables cooked perfectly but paid for as an extra, this is made clear so no hidden extra's. Definately go back in the not too distant future..

This is a wonderful restaurant with a good atmosphere. Whether it be inside during the cooler months or outside on the terrace in summer. Always a good welcome too. My all time favourite restaurant with excellent food.

Snails, rib-eye and crème brûlée: all delicious. We had a lovely bubly to start and really nice Bordeaux with the meal. The food is always great and attentive service with a smile. Perfect birthday dinner. Thank you x

We first went to the restaurant in July this year. We returned to the area visiting friends in October 2016. From the outside, if you did not know it was a great place you would drive by. Inside, the restaurant has classic French feel to it. The menu is not cluttered and each dish that came to our table was... More

Our first visit here to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Attentive service, good food and a reasonable price made for a very enjoyable meal. Eating on the patio was very pleasant on a warm evening. I am sure we will be returning soon.
