    Perfectly fine classic French. But for the cost we expected something a little more. Wine good and not expensive, service fine, ambience fine but terrine bland, onion soup too sweet, pepper sauce over-seasoned and not peppery. I enjoyed rabbit casserole but the whole experience was a bit underwhelming.

    The food was very good, but somewhat average, the venue was slightly busy but managed well, the atmosphere I would've loved french music quietly in the background, it was a bit hot as the air conditioning was not strong enough. A great local restaurant.

    This was our second time at this little gem, and I couldn't have loved it more. Greeted by the charismatic owner, the service was warm and friendly, non-intrusive and playful. The food; an absolute delight. The fresh bread and butter were incredible, and the meals are also really well sized. We also had a really great bottle of wine that went with everything. Crab croquettes were a great starter, followed by a rich & glorious French onion soup. My main of duck was perfectly cooked medium - rare and the bulbous SUBLIME. We don't normally order desert, but we made an exception, and the crepe suzette was a stunning conclusion to a fine evening of dining. What an awesome little French restaurant - very authentic, intimate and cosy!
