Due to bad luck I have not been able to try the weekday menu. Each of my visits has been at a weekend when the menu is fixed three courses in the creole style. It has been different every time and excellent every time too. This most recent visit I tried to book on a Friday, but they were full - proof of their success.

We had beignet (or frittered) aubergines with curried vegetables and a mild sauce to start. The main course was crevettes (shrimp) on a bed of vegetables, perfumed rice and white beans, with a beautiful lemon slice sauce. Pudding was chopped kiwi fruit in a christmas style pastry cracker with passion fruit ice cream and a small piece of the most wonderful thick chocolate mousse With a bottle of Cheverny white wine and two coffees - 54€ for two people, or £46.10 at today's rate. Fantastic value.

The weekday cooking style is from the island of Réunion using 'la plancha' or cooking on a flat hot plate. I understand that the french fries are home made. I am looking forward to trying them.

The style of the cooking is from Réunion one of the old French colonial possessions in the Indian Ocean. We went on Saturday lunchtime and the fixed menu was Creole. We had seasoned crudités salad with an optional very hot sauce. The main course was a pork chop, but it was so tender. It had cantonese fried rice and highly spiced tomato and onion. For pudding we had two scoops of ice cream and chantilly cream, there were a number of flavours to choose from. All this cost 17 euros. There were four of us, we had a drink to start, a bottle of excellent rose wine and coffee. Total for four people was 100.80 €, or 25.20 € each. Excellent value for money.

The hostess was charming and wonderfully helpful. It was our good fortune to start talking to some other guests and have a really good Saturday afternoon.

The phone number is 02 51 53 01 29. Make a reservation and try it.
