Café du Marche is a special place with a wonderful atmosphere. The staff understand food & wine and know how to serve. They are welcoming, courteous, knowledgeable and friendly. Excellent traditional French cooking and the wine list is interesting and very good. Nice piano and double bass live music for some of the evening.

Excellent, unfussy, friendly service. We largely ate different things but there was universal praise for the food. Good solid traditional French, good ingredients and well cooked. A nice plus was the piano/bass duo - they were superb

Overpriced set menu, not good value for money! One of the most overcooked pieces of pheasant I have ever had the misfortune to try and eat
