My partner works in France so very used to eating 'French'. Really good food and atmosphere. Only disappointment was no French cheese on dessert menu.

I loved this place, great food, attentive service and was pleasantly surprised. Even my partner, ( who is a chef and normally very critical) loved the food. Very impressed.

A little off the main buzz of the town this restaurant advertises itself as 'French and Mediterranean cuisine' and it is true to itself. Efficient friendly service good freshly prepared food and French music playing in the background.
