Description: Situated in the vibrant Lower Gold Street this is a cafe, bar, bistro with a french flavour. It is a great place to meet up with friends for a morning coffee, indulge in a lazy lunch, relax with a leisurely glass of Kir, meet friends for after work cocktails and light bites or to just have a special evening out. The all day menu is enhanced by the daily baking of bread, cakes and scones and varied daily chefs specials.The wine list is ever changing and the bar is renowned for its amazing number of gins from around the world, which are always served the way they should be!

“Lovely Cakes !”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

Very pretty small restaurant / Bistro. We just had tea and cakes but they were lovely, though the tea would have been nicer in China cups. There was a good choice of teas

“Has potential,just hasn't achieved yet.”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

Had a dissapointing lunch today.Thought we would give Frou Frou a try,as normally eat in others on Tuesday lunch.Limited lunchtime menu,30 minute wait for,cheese on toast,and cold meat board.The food was good,not a lot of it,and they forgot the homemade bread,which we didn't get,and an "oh dear"on paying.
Very well decorated,nice friendly staff,but need to up your game to compete.We will return,maybe better next time.

“eat and drink well but quickly”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

having visited this retaurant twice the first meal being mediocre i revisited and had a good meal with friends i was informed at 9.40 that any further drinks required would have to be ordered now as the restaurant licence ended at 10pm, being a creature of habit i tend to like to finish my wine then move onto the port with the cheese and biscuits, then round the evening up with either a glass of brandy or a liqueur coffee. as i had only 20 minutes before drinking up time , i had lined up in front of me all 3 drinks. this is not an inexpensive restaurant, so whilst the food on this occasion was good , remember to book early..

“Stunning French Restaurant...........”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

Have just moved to Devon and found Frou Frou just by chance....and what a find ! It has a French theme running through it from it's name to it's decor to it's food. It has a lovely atmosphere, the staff are well presented, nicely spoken and provide superb service which is done with such ease. The food was absolutely superb, beautifully cooked and presentation stunning. It is the perfect place for morning coffee, afternoon tea or an intimate dinner with that someone special. Tiverton should be extremely proud to have such an amazing restaurant in their midst, and Jean-Marc thank you for Frou Frou and allowing us to enjoy it with you, it's absolutely amazing....
