Delicious, authentic French food in a great, small restaurant.
The service was friendly and, although it says that there may be a wait for food as it is scratch cooked, it came quickly and was piping hot.
Lovely experience all round. We shall be returning.

Thank Paul T

Just back from our first visit, a lovely dinner for 2. Service was friendly, quick and efficient, without being overbearing. Place was packed and has a really nice, informal atmosphere, but with really good quality food and wine. Good portion sizes too, main meal especially was more generous than in some places I have been. Overall we were very pleased, will go back and would recommend. Only small criticism is they should have include a list of soft drinks and beers, etc. other than the wine list.

Fantastic bistro with a great menu with circa 8 mains to chose from, there where 4 of us who each tried a different one and all delicious. The portions are generous I had the wild chicken and mushroom ....beautiful, the beouf bourguinon was also very tasty. The chef finds time to visit tables and go through the menu which is a great touch. Unfortunately there appears to be only one sitting so book well in advance for the weekend.

Just come home from a fabulous, fun evening at this wonderful little restaurant. Great food, friendly staff and the wine was delicious. Went with the family and we all enjoyed the cosy relaxed environment and the staff were very friendly. Will definitely go back.
