This restaurant was referred to us last time but was booked out. We managed lunch and dinner this time and it was great. The food is very good French and the service is professional.

Lovely restaurant. It is really popular so make sure you book ahead of time. Menu is really varied and staff are friendly. Definitely worth eating here.
