Consistently very good food with a wide unchanging menu of favorites supplemented by a good variety of seasonal specials. Has the additional benefit of more flexible opening times.

I have liked this brasserie in the past, but now have some concerns... Snails: arrived tepid, sent back. Were reheated (thus overcooked), not replaced. And yes, 2 in each shell - indeed, how does that happen? Calves liver/ EB burger: both excellent. Service: good until...More
