We ate twice in Le Blaireau and would not hesitate to eat there again. A wide range of choice of food & (french) wine, and first class service in an authentic French atmosphere.

Lovely restaurant with an inviting menu and attentive staff. The goats cheese bruschetta was a highlight. Tables are arranged to give privacy which is always appreciated. Overall we had a lovely visit and would certainly recommend.

We can never fault Le Blaireau and always look forward to our return. Great service and great french cuisine and wines. Our favourite is the lamb dish L’AGNEAU and the poached chicken breast LE POULET they are so delicious and highly recommend!
