Inexperience is a little bit of Paris in Douglas. The restaurant is small so you need to book for a meal. The food was really excellent, a limited but some of the finest dishes of French food. Went twice, first time had a fish brule' very rich. Second time e fillet steak which was delectable melted in the mouth. A good selection of French wine as I would expect and a few good other world wines. Service was very good. I did not however get the praline desert as none left so had a creme brule, really crunchynon top and creamy underneath. Very well worth a visit. Don't forget to book though.

We love coming to lex for dinner, whether it’s the flash sale or just the normal menu. The food is always superb and you know what you’re getting when you go. Really love this place, a favourite of ours on the Isle of Man
