When my wife and I shop in Chester, we always like to have lunch there as well. A restaurant we used to go to had closed, so my wife searched TripAdvisor and found that this new restaurant had a number of very positive reviews. We booked it the day before to ensure we would have a table.
The restaurant has the feel of a typical restaurant you would find in the Latin Quarter of Paris, even down to having a "Menu du Jour" and A La Carte menus. And yes, it even does snails, frogs legs and 'Moules et Frites". All the staff were French speaking.
The restaurant quickly filled up and we noticed that several tables were occupied by French couples/families.
I opted for a fresh soup starter and pork escalope for my main, both from the Menu du Jour. Both dishes were excellent. The sauce which was served with the pork was absolutely superb and typical French. We were given bread and President butter and the bread was very nice.
We shared a 750ml carafe of house white Sauvignon Blanc which cost around £12. It was very drinkable and I would say good value for the money.
For dessert, my wife had a Crème Brûlée. It was full of vanilla seeds and very creamy. It was probably the best Crème Brûlée either of us have ever tasted. I had the Tarte au Citron which was clearly home-made and served with raspberry sorbet. It was nicely tart and not sweet, which is just how I like it. Again, it was superb.
I finished with a Café Grand which was a creamy coffee similar to a latte and again, this was very nice.
We will definitely be going again. I will be ordering the frogs legs next time!
I would advise to book if you are going on a Saturday, because it gets busy. Several people came in, but could not get a table.
