This place has some of the best food 🥘 be ever eaten! It's a French restaurant and the proprietor is extremely welcoming. The food is absolutely top notch and last time I went I had the most amazing belly pork which melted in the mouth! Desserts and wine list impeccable. Cannot recommend enough

This is an authentic French restaurant - a cosy setting, lovely atmosphere, friendly French staff, a good range of choices on the menu without being over ambitious and an excellent standard of presentation and cooking. There is a Specials board with additional tempting choices and the house wine is excellent. And to add to the excellence, it is on Tastecard!

We visited Chez with another couple on Saturday evening. The food and service were very pleasing. We all enjoyed our meals along with good quality wine. I had the French onion soup to start and crispy duck leg for my main. Friendly atmosphere in a comfortable setting. Will be returning to this quaint restaurant sometime soon.

What an unexpected surprise. Checkered tablecloths, wide ranging menu and very high quality food. Service was extremely friendly with a great incentive to become a regular. No need to travel into town.

We recently celebrated our Diamond Wedding at Chez Tonton. This is our favourite local restaurant and had every confidence that the evening would be a success. As expected Eric and Claudine and staff made the evening an occasion to remember. The menu was varied and the service was second to none, many of our 27 guests have since said how... More

Thus is our second visit to this charming Bistro owned by a French family. Our friends kindly invited us to join them for dinner last Saturday as it was a special wedding anniversary. We were all seated very comfortably upstairs. Our table had a lovely centre piece of The Eiffel Tower. There is a lovely relaxed Gallic ambiance here. The... More

Let Eric & Claudine offer you an immersive french experience that will give you that feeling of.. Je ne sais quoi. A Bientot
