    Lovely lunch venue. We both had mussels and then fish and each dish was delicious. Service was efficient, warm and friendly. The restaurant is very French with nice decor on two levels so you do have to go down a small set of stairs to the loos. Highly recommend it

    I love this place & brought my father-in-law as a birthday treat. The food was excellent as always but the staff were a bit slow (more so when it was quieter) and my f-I-L's espresso at the end was undrinkable - not sure what went wrong there but tasted like it had salt in it. We were too full to mention it but I'm sure they would have made him another one if we'd asked.
