    There was very little goats cheese in the parcel, chips were cold and the service was slow

    Food was OK but nothing special. Soupe a l'Oignon was tasty though a bit watery and lacked fleshy onions. Goats cheese in filo pastry was average at best - pastry was dry and flavorless. Bar en Coleaur (Sea bass with couscous) was excellent as were the garnishments, textures and spices. Rib eye Steak ordered was medium rare and what was served was actually a French medium rare so closer to blue. Wine is very overpriced - we had a very average medium bodied Malbec for €42 a bottle. Service was attentive, friendly and all in all excellent. Nice ambience but food isn't at the level of what would be expected.

    I'm not generally a big fan of French food but this meal has changed my mind! French onion soup was fab and the whole meal in general was really good. Great atmosphere too.

    The service was slow, not helped by the manager who was was sat at a table and didn’t help the waiting staff who were clearly run off their feet. The manager was also watching a TV show on her phone with the volume up which didn’t help with the ambience and to further ruin things as she finished her shift she decided to stand behind the bar and comment loudly on all the things the staff were doing wrong. Really bad management style and if it wasn’t for the food I would never consider returning here. However the next shift manager seemed to be completely different and way more professional - will try an evening next time and hopefully this awful manager won’t be on duty!

    While my salad was fab my friend did not eat hers as was very dry. It was the chicken salad . Disappointing as was her first time there too:(. We had to remind when bill arrived that her saiad should not be included. The female waitress wasn’t great .. she could have been more considerate when my friend asked for dressing

    We arrived at 1:30 and had a leisurely lunch until 3:45 pm. The calamaris and boeuf bourgignon were very good. The wine was good and finished with a Bailey's coffee. The only negative was the slightly loud french rap/? music which didn't seem age appropriate for the diners.

    Food is really nice, quite traditional but not quite as heavy as normal. Unfortunately the service isn't great, the host sits you and then comes back ten minutes later to bring you a menu? Also not letting customers use bathroom after a two course meal is ridiculous and saying it is forbidden due to covid is dishonest.

    Great food and portions. The wine card is nice. You really feel like in a brasserie in Paris. Service can be slow and the staff can be like in Paris :( and it can be very noisy indoor.

    Edgar was amazing! We felt very welcome from the get go and all service staff were incredibly friendly - even though it was clear they were a bit busy and some disoriented. We waited a little for our desserts (which was no worry to us) but we were given a free dessert as compensation which was so lovely! Once again Edgar was such a gent and really made our dining experience what it was :) Would definitely return!
