Second visit here this year and won’t be the last. Stunning cheese soufflés on a grey, cold winter day. Delightful duck. Tender steaks. Buzzing atmosphere on a Thursday lunch time, yet easy for a corporate table of four to hear each other while not being...More

We recently attempted to celebrate my Mum's 80th birthday here. What a sorry choice of venue. The service was uniformly poor. Indifferent waiters who were bordering on being rude. And despite knowing it was a significant birthday, the staff made no effort to even acknowledge...More

We were all pretty disappointed with our experience at Bistro Guillaume. The service was very patchy, not attentive at all. The food was OK, nothing amazing (like I was expecting) The onion soup seemed to be bolstered with a strong beef stock and the steak...More

The menu tested my schoolboy French but the staff were more than helpful. Some of whom were from France. Steak done beautifully. Mussels in a very generous portion. Avoid the frites as they were no better than MacDonald's shoestrings. Lovely spot looking out over the...More
