We highly recommend Le Balmoral for dinner. Our family of four were treated very well, nothing was too much trouble. Yummy pizza, great wine, delicious dessert. Very helpful waiters. Would definitely return !

Abrupt waiter putting bottles on our table with a resounding clunk. Pizzas good without distinction, wine including pots well priced. I would expect a smile from male staff, follow the lead of your female waiting staff even if she did arrive late to start her...More
