Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Wonderful Food. Great ambiance fabulous staff and great value! It was my birthday. We arrived to a packed restaurant with a lovely table set up for us (we had booked) the menu offers a superb variety of meat, seafood & vegetarian options. There is a...set menu option 2 courses for £28 and also a specials board. We opted for starters from the specials board and the main menu: scallops with black pudding spinach & bacon lardons. I had the cheese soufflé utterly mouthwatering delicious. For mains ribeye steak (med rare) with peppercorn sauce and fat fries. My partner enjoyed pork tenderloin with dauphinois potatoes and Madeira sauce both stunning. This restaurant is must go to! In my view amazing every time (this was our third visit!) Chris gives a personal & friendly service top bloke and a great host.More

I looked on Tripadvisor and booked our Sunday lunchtime slot months ago, phew thank heavens I did. An absolutely superb experience from start to finish and the owner was a very charming chap! The roast beef & pork roasts were faultless and even the humous...to start with and bread and balsamic were so tasty. The desserts and cheese board were also first class. Many thanks!More

We eat here several times a year and went here again to celebrate my husband’s birthday. We both had 3 delicious courses - the food is always beautifully presented and of the highest quality. It was made extra special this time by them presenting my...husband with a birthday plate of scrumptious white chocolate ice cream and a complimentary glass of dessert wine. Looking forward to our next visit .More

This is a small family restaurant that serves excellent french food and wine at a competitive price. We had Sunday lunch last week and returned this evening for an early evening meal. On both occasions delighted with the food and the service,

Small restaurant with great background music. Had a most delicious lunch, beautifully cooked and presented. We will be back but not as frequently as we would like, as it’s 25 miles away. Just wish we had something of such quality and value for money nearer...to us.More

Well-deserved reputation for incredible food and service. We came with friends for a birthday meal and every course was divine. I’m glad to hear the chef will shortly be opening a French patisserie on the high street! French chef and French maitre’d makes the experience...even more authentic. Absolutely delicious food - we have been meaning to try this restaurant for years and now we’ll likely book again next month! Only thing I’d change is the name of the place - sounds way more simple and cafe-like than it is. A proper French title and you’d be falling over yourselves for custom!More

Have often driven past and wondered what this place would be like. It's small so booking is necessary. The menu has a good selection and there are a few specials too. Food was amazing. Beautiful presentation, delicious dishes. We cleared our plates on all 3...courses. Service was friendly and attentive. The only negative was that our table by the door was a bit draughty on a January night. I will definitely be returning. I'm a bit reluctant to review as this place is so good, I don't want to share it.More

Wow! The food and service was amazing. I will often look at a menu and will change it by swapping items or mixing dishes together. Not here. The menu was perfect, fresh, tasty food which was not trying to be anything other than it was....Beautifully presented and tasty and excellent value. My first time but will not be my last. Thank you!More

Excellently cooked and wonderfully presented food. Relaxed atmosphere and a very amiable host. Highly recommended - especially the cheese soufflé. Our second visit following a family birthday meal for 11 back in the summer. We’ll be back!

I went for a belated Birthday lunch with a friend who had recommended Bistro my way. We were able to have lunch from the festive menu. The best Christmas lunch I’ve ever tasted! So good that I keep dreaming about the turkey and roast potatoes...which were delicious and the sauce was fantastic. Wonderful attention from the French waiter . A touch of France in Highcliffe. Parfait! Will definitely be returning.More

It is really better to book in advance to avoid disappointment especially week end as We only sit 20 at the time and therefore the place are limited Charles
