We love it here. Great food or you can just enjoy a drink. Friendly, helpful staff, relaxed atmosphere and French ambience. If you're eating on busier days it is best to book in advance.

Great little piece of France right here in Skipton. Excellent food, wine, service and atmosphere. Also able to purchase food to take home from the deli...superb range of cheeses available.

A really lovely place styled as a French bistro where many of the dishes are influenced by French bistro styled cuisine but not all. Service was very good and attentive and the menu du jour was reasonably priced. Unfortunately the desert menu was not up to the standard expected so was rather disappointing. All in all, very good and worth... More

Booked a table last minute and it was no problem at all. Food was stunning - had the fishcake to start and duck leg for main course, it was faultless. Portions are really good sizes also which was great. Would visit again without hesitation.

We counted ourselves lucky to have got a table as we hadn't booked, just came in on the off chance when trying to find somewhere to have lunch on our day out in Skipton and people were being turned away who came in after us with no bookings. The staff couldn't have been lovelier, so friendly and helpful and we... More

Found because another restaurant did not answer our call for a table, the booking service and times and room choices were so easy to use. On arrival the downstairs area was busy but we were met and promptly taken to our table in the restaurant (3 areas, Downstairs, Restaurant and Mezzanine) nice table for 2 with good surroundings. Place is... More

We went here as we thought French would be good food and French service. It was not. The food was not good and for what it was very over priced. The service was ok but not what I have come to know from the French. I would not recommend to visit.

So I had to write another review. We came here in November and the food was great but the veggie options were a bit lacking. I wrote a review on here stating as much, and lo and behold when we went back a few weeks later there was a fantastic veggie dish of baked aubergine with potatoes and vegetables on... More

Called in after Christmas Shopping and once again full of people all eating. We both had Bouillabaisse Soup and it was once again full of Fish & Seafood, lots of fresh hot homemade bread and butter and to finish their Ultimate Creme Brulee with its crispy top, Nice glass of white wine. What more could you ask for on a... More

We had been meaning to eat here for ages and finally we called in for lunch. We only ordered a simple croque Monsieur and pork baguette but I must say it was delicious. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the ambience good. We definitely intend to try their more comprehensive menu on another occasion. Well worth a visit.

Thank valma c
