    Really good food and very attentive service. Unfortunately it got very noisy at around 8.00pm when a big crowd entered the restaurant. All in all, though, very much to recommend.

    This restaurant is perfect for a business lunch although the tables for two people are very close together. The service was prompt and the ‘plat du jour’ of hake with béarnaise sauce was delicious.

    The food was good, but not exceptional by the standards of this restaurant. The noise level was very high, but the service was excellent.

    Excellent service and very good food, in a quiet and comfortable setting. Almost everything could be modified to be gluten free, including lovely warm rolls to start off with and delicious desserts. The waitress really took care to check if everything served was gluten free, in case we wanted to share.

    We were disappointed to find out that the chef had changed and they had a new menu. I was looking forward to the delicious pasta and risotto dishes they used to serve. The food was good but nothing spectacular and was overpriced for what it was. The wait staff is the same and as lovely as always.

    We were the only English speakers in the restaurant and yet they made us feel most welcome. Menu printed in French and English. Exquisite foie gras, delicious fresh shrimp starter, shared a sea bream whole fish that was perfectly prepared and presented, light pastry with lime and mango sorbets for dessert. Nice wine list, full bar.
