Had a wonderful meal here. Mixed charcuterie to start followed by lamb for my partner which melted in the mouth and crab with chilli and spaghetti for me. Quite delicious! Dessert was excellent as was wine and service. No complaints at all and would highly recommend it. Would definitely return if we are back in the area. A really lovely... More

I had read about this restaurant from a report in the Telegraph. We arrived at 12.30 last Thursday. We were welcomed warmly. The menu was seasonal and very professional done. The staff friendly and efficient Well worth a visit may get busy in the summer

How I love this restaurant. We were made to feel welcome straight away. This is a family run restaurant, and it shows. So welcoming and friendly. My favourite were the muscles. My husband ordered them (so I forget the name of this dish). Creamy garlicky, herby sauce. This was soo good. We just visited Stow for the day. But I... More

This is a small but very popular bistro in the middle of the market town of Stowe. It's crowded but that adds to the atmosphere and the food is very good with a French style - seafood particualrly recommended.

We booked this restaurant based on Trip Advisor and what looked like a wonderful menu. We were very disappointed with the food and value for money, they were extremely busy and I think this showed in the quality and taste of the food.

Lovely restaurant with very friendly staff, a great atmosphere and decor. The menu is fairly extensive and to be honest we could have eaten most starters and mains which made for difficult decisions! We plumed for the Cornish fish soup and duck fillet to start and the Bouillabaisse and Lobster for mains all of which were good however for the... More

Went on a Saturday evening very busy but good food and really good service had the fish soup starter but had to have a steak main as they did not do just a crab main dish. So slightly disappointed but the steak was good. Wife had lobster which was very tasty if on the small side

This is a really nice little restaurant in Stow. Despite the name it specialises in Seafood and the range available on the day we visited was very good. We all had the Haddock and Chips which was on the daily special, it was really nicely cooked and really fresh. Service from the whole team, all of them very young, was... More

Absolutely excellent - great atmosphere, really good service and amazing food! Had a really nicely cooked liver, and my husband's steak was lovely and smokey too. The desserts were also suberb - loved the ginger cake with rhubarb. Can't wait to come back.
