I visited the French Table mid week with friends and we had a very enjoyable evening except that the restaurant was quite cold. There were only two other tables occupied so it also lacked atmosphere. I have visited here many times and we always enjoy it. The menu has recently changed and some old favourites are no longer available. I... More

I should have written this ages ago but never got the chance.. I went to the French table for the first time a month or two ago and I have to say I fell in love with the place! The ambience of the restaurant is magical and the staff were so friendly and knowledgeable (ask for recommendations- they know their... More

Second time to enjoy this lovely restaurant, off the beaten track but very accessable beside the clarion hotel. A special place and wonderful food and atmosphere.

Walked in without a reservation and was warmly welcomed. We just wanted a main course and selected the special fish of the day, which was excellent. I noticed that the set menu was excellent value. The staff were very friendly and service excellent. We spoke to a lovely girl who was on her first night working. Good luck.

Most recently I had a beautiful dinner here with my boyfriend. The service was excellent as was the food and wine, albeit a little expensive but you get what you pay for. My boyfriend said it was the best meal he has ever had! The view we had was beautiful, I would recommend requesting a table by the window. The... More

I have eaten here a number of times but thought I would eventually share my experience. You need to plan to go here as you are unlikely to find it by accident but it is close to the Clarion. I love French food and this restaurant is French. Pleasant atmosphere and attentive staff. The menu is very good. The specials... More

I had the hake, prawn... More

I was very disappointed with the food in this restaurant. I had John dory special. Potatoes especially were terrible. All in all, a disappointing experience and in spite of complaining on the night, nothing was taken off my bill. Special was very overpriced.
