“Most enjoyable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

My husband and I visited here on a Sunday evening. There was just chef and a very helpful professional waiter at work. You can sit outside to eat but if you pick the right table you can see chef busy at work in the kitchen.
We had the degustation menu which at 45 euros is very good value. There was plenty of care in presentation and cooking. In terms of choosing wine, the list is not extensive but it is chosen to match the food being served and so, if asked, the waiter can assist in you in finding the right choice. This is what we did and our wine was perfectly matched.
I think the chef could raise his level, he is clearly talented, but then you would not be paying 45 euros for a degustation menu.The front of house experience is also excellent. I find it hard to enjoy my food if the service is not good but here it is matched with the quality of the kitchen. They have struck a sensible balance for the location of the restaurant, the number of staff working there and the size of it.
Recommended.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014

The reservation was made for us by a regular customer of VII's. One of her favourite dining spots.We were early...the first to arrive that evening so it was very quiet until it filled up. The decor is minimal but attractive. Flowers candles and linens for the tables which are well spaced but few. The service was helpful, knowledgable and very professional....perhaps one might say a bit 'stiff'. The general atmosphere restrained.The menu much to our suprise lacked variety. Everything we ordered was delicious however and beautifully and imaginatively prepared.Our thoughts were to return and enjoy the degustation menu but on further investigation, it proved to be just too pricey with the wine being an added expense. All in all a very good restaurant that we would someday try again.

“Not quite there yet.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013 via mobile

A restaurant with lots of ambience and an attentive and informed waiter who speaks good English. We had the 4 course degustation menu and whilst there was nothing wrong with the food it did not rise to any great level. Each course was satisfactory but lacked imagination and creativity. The wine list is quite small and a bit expensive. Overall you will enjoy a good night out in a warm and welcoming place, just don't expect it to reac great heights.

“Very Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

Very professional waiter who looks after your every need. It's a small restaurant and a very good one. The food is delicious and the "formule du jour" (if chosen) makes for a very good value, but top quality, meal.

An excellent meal, cooked perfectly, and served in a lovely intimate room.

“Small example of excellence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2013 via mobile

The restaurant is small but the service is pure excellence and the food is exquisite! The sommelier who is also the only waiter is very knowledgable, speaks three languages and looks after you all the time! Prices are fair!
