Intimate atmosphere, good selection of traditional French cuisine and BYO. Complimentary pate and toast triangles was very tasty and all three courses were first rate.

I know this restaurant has been around for 30 years or so, but it has maintained the excellence in food and service. It couldn't be better. Seafood pancake to start, following by Beef Wellington and then cheese & fruit to finish. Great value. B.Y.O. drinks....More
