My hubby and I came here for the first time and the atmosphere is relaxed and intimate before the night crowd came in. We got the brushetta (3 varieties of yum!) and fried ricotta (so-so, not a fan of squash). His entree, the BBQ rump steak was tender and delicious, and I got the fillet with a pepper sauce which...

What a lovely restaurant. The food was good although I won't have the beer battered fish next time. The service is excellent, the ambience is relaxing and cosy (although a little more light on the table could be nice - found it a little dark). Will definitely return.

Had read a number of very positive reviews on this little brasserie and decided to give it a try. From the welcome at the door, to the friendly helpful service and excellent dishes we all had this is a little gem. Two of us had their famous Sunday pork belly roast which was delicious and the other the fillet au... More

We visited this establishment for lunch. The food was excellent and the service very attentative. I had the Sunday roast which was delicious. My wife's crumbed chicken breasts with a mustard sauce was to die for. The kiddies were more than happy with their chicken strips and hake, both served with chips. We will definitely visit again when we will... More

Late lunch time so things were starting to slow down when we entered the eatery. We had a table outside in the narrow courtyard, sitting in gentle sunshine, without a care in the world. We both ordered from the special lunch club menu and were not disappointed. I ordered the pasta puttanesca (full of juicy black olives, anchovies and chilli)... More

Went to the Brasserie for Dinner last night and had a super evening. My wife and I had Pizza, they were both Superb. The base of the Pizza was just perfect. Thin and crispy with plenty of toppings. Service was excellent. We were not rushed at all at any time. If you have the Entertainers Vouchers you can use them... More

In 2013 I rated this restaurant very poorly, it has come a long way since then and has matured into a a delightful and consistent eatery. The menu is well priced with a good choice of items on the menu, typical brasserie fare. Wines are also fairly priced and if you boy, the first bottle is free of corkage. You'll... More

As always - great service and a friendly welcome. Excellent fillet - cooked just right with crispy veggies. Good wine list too and some craft beers. Have eaten there often and will go back again and again as it never disappoints.

We were recommended this place as we just wanted a quick easy bite to eat. The waiter was very friendly and the food that we had was incredibly yummy, succulent steaks with tasty acccompaniments. We didn't get a chance to go back again during our holiday but wouldn't hesitate to recommend this bistro.

We headed to the Brasserie after deciding last minute to head out in search of a dinner on Valentine's...with luck they had space! The steak was quite literally the best prepared steak I have had whilst living in CT for the passed 5 years! Unpretentious and nice setting. Waiter was very well prepared and knew the menu well. Not a... More
