Thoroughly enjoyable evening last Wednesday after visiting the St Nicolas Christmas Market when dining here. Opted for the fix price menu which proved once again good value with many varied dishes. Wine reasonably priced, service very good and food tasty and well presented. A winner.

The only disappointment was that the staff had no record of our telephone booking of a table for four. However, the waitress managed to find us a suitable table and everything after that was great. In typical French fashion, there was a choice of the...More
