A lovely French bistro. The menu was classic, and all the food was all very well prepared. The marrow bones were the highlight of the meal for me: a very generous portion (share them!) with a lovely blueberry compote that complimented the dish nicely. I...More

Sat in the bar, loved the European atmosphere. Great personal service. Amazing wine and drink selection. Had the GNOCCHI it was AMAZING!!!! Best thing I've eaten in quite a while. Perfectly cooked, amazing mushrooms, luscious hearty cream sauce topped with cheese. Perfect execution.

I've eaten dinner here several times and each time, I've left a little disappointed. The menu options are quite elegant and French and the wine menu is lengthy and a bit confusing. This restaurant would appeal to diners with a refined palate but there are...More

The food was excellent and the service great. We enjoyed the evening and had looked at it as a practice run for our visit to France.
