I went with my brother to this Bistro for dinner and was blown away by the quality of the food. Wonderfully presented, wonderfully tasty and very moderately priced. But the portions are enormous and we had to have a doggy bag afterwards. It would have been a sin and a crime to throw the remnants of the meats away. The waitress on duty was a very busy person and accomplished her duties admirably, was attentive and when we made a mistake in ordering some wine, put matters right with great aplomb.

I made four portions of very tasty soup with my 'doggy bag.' We will certainly be back. However here is some constructive criticism. The menu needs to be a bit more upmarket in line with the food and the wine list has a good selection of white wines but no reds to match. The beef was crying for a Chateauneuf-du-Pape or similar.

This restaurant is a delight. A genuine welcome with great service, lovely ambience and fabulous food.. All the food is quite clearly cooked to order (so one does have to be patient, if you're a fast food person this is not the restaurant for you) .....it is however well worth the wait! Personally I prefer to take time over a good meal. The menu has plenty of choice for everyone.

Very enjoyable evening with helpful attentive staff and good food. When we left, I had left my umbrella and a member of staff found us in the pub up the road to return it. Definitely above and beyond.
