One of our very favourite restaurants in the area. We come here several times throughout the summer. We live not far and it's an absolute must go to place if you want value in every facet of fine dining. Consistently good over a number of years and what a setting! Allow Jaques the owner to recommend wine for you with your food. Excellent overall.

Not cheap, but well worth the money. Food is superbly cooked and presented, and although it looks as if you're not getting much on your plate (probably because the plates are so huge!), you'll leave feeling replete. We all had different dishes and all enjoyed every morsel. Well worth the money - especially if it's for a special occasion.

We have eaten here twice and plan to return soon when other friends visit. The second visit was better than the first as the service had improved but the food was equally superb on each occasion. Everyone makes an effort to ensure you enjoy your meal with a thorough explanation of the provenance of the dishes, recipe and which wine may best accompany the meal. Having eaten three course meals in other local restaurants Les Griffons isn't that much more expensive and actually feels like pretty good value. Don't go here if you're an 'egg and chips' kind of person but do go here if you want great food and a more special time.

Eaten here twice in a week and planning final visit on Thursday. Service very attentive, wine quality very good too and explained in detail by the owner. I could say that it is a little pricy but that would be unfair as it has the quality to carry the price. Three visits certainly puts it into perspective. Would have gone tonight but it was fully booked. Prawn starter excellent contains coconut which was a subtle surprise. Duck main course very good. My 10 year old loved the fish turbot as a special, my 8 year old daughter enjoyed her beef. I had duck pinkie and it was gorgeous, blue steak and again perfect. Apparently the sweetbreads were delicious too. Definitely worth a visit.

The duck confit was the best I have ever had. I also enjoyed the rabbit and the foie gras. Dark chocolate souffle. Wines paired beautifully with your meal and history about the wines is great!
