We had «breakfast» one coffee and "chocolat au lait" that was basically milk with 6 chocolate nuggets that you had to mix yourself. They had no more "pain au chocolat" so we had one old croissant. Service is slow and this place is seriously overrated...More

Fish and chips were lively. Comes with a small salad. Can't remember what the house cocktail is called, but it's delicious. Friendly waitstaff. Boyfriend's steak was yummy.

I had a few morning hours to kill waiting for the Eurostar and spent a really enjoyable relaxing time here. I'm always happy to see Lapsang Souchong on the menu and the scrambled eggs and mushrooms were delicious. Plus good music and free wi-fi.

Got to Houtsiplou at 9.45pm on a Saturday night and was told the kitchen is closed! Couldn't believe that they close up so early. The waitress went to check with the kitchen and said we could have burger and chips only, but whatever drinks we...More
