Cafe Buee is now closed - despite all the good reviews (including one from me). Sadly, I think I must agree with those who thought the service and surroundings were not up to the excellence of the food. Once the lady of the establishment left...More

I visited Cafe Buee with my girlfriend a week or so ago and was very impressed with the food. We had the full three courses and thought that everything was outstanding, particularly the roast lamb main which was (without exaggeration!) the best I'd ever tasted!...More

In times like these, everyone loves a bargain - and I think this is the best value restaurant on the quayside! Serving no-nonsense French bistro classics (think Steak Frites, Coq au Vin, simply grilled fish) in a warm and pleasant grade II listed building, Chef...More
