“A little piece of France in the heart of Poole”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

Genuine French food served by French staff. Beautiful cooking, great atmosphere and generous portions. Great value and always come out feeling well-stuffed, by the lovely food not the prices. Gives me a chance to practice my rusty French avec le Patron.

“Stunning Fish Place!!”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

Absolutely stunning!
Friends advised me to book cause this place seems to be packed all the time. And it should be!
Unbelievable food, great staff (very welcoming and polite), lovely wine and just a nice place to be.
And not as expensive as it should be:)
My new favorite fish restaurant.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

Lovely late lunch at 2pm. Great service and food today. Enjoyed crispy hake and fries with French bread. Was admiring the beautiful French wine glasses and they actually sell them!

“Great fish with French flair”
Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

We visited twice over a long weekend in Poole. Essential to book as packed each day- and not hard to see why! Great welcome, attentive, charming staff, and splendid local seafood . The day's specials can be just that. Hard to find any fault, and not even that expensive.
