In summary: - Some incredibly rude management - Humiliating service - Deceiving website - Cheapskate attitude Be warned that on the website it states that you can pay £30 to listen to the live music. However it deceivingly appears like it is optional to have...More

I took a good friend that hadn’t been there before. He was most impressed and intrigued by the 1930’s Art Deco surroundings - unique. The food has certainly improved since the last time I was there with good portions, vegetables al dente and well presented....More

This is a wonderful venue and the food satisfactory. Unfortunately during my visit, the audience would not shut up while the musicians were playing, showing no respect for two fine guitarists. Hopefully, this doesn't happen often.

This off the beaten track shrine to Django Reindhart and all things Gypsy Jazz really was a great find and we’ve been back several times. Just step through the door and you’re transported to 1930s Paris. The delicious food, fine wines and truly awe-inspiring live...More
