    A modestly furnished restaurant in the style of a French Bistro with French staff and well prepared and presented French food.

    The problem is it seems that one has to pay for the privilege of eating there - it is not cheap even when using the tastecard and the drinks are the most expensive we have encountered.

    There are many equally good eateries at far better value - one visit is enough. "

    The restaurant had a nice atmosphere and the staff were welcoming. The waiters were French and translated the specials board for us.
    We didn't have starters but we got a basket of bread which was warm and delicious (some of it in the bread basket was stone cold which was odd but still tasty).
    Mains were very flavoursome and rich. We had calves liver and beef stew which were both great. They came with included sides of Dauphinoise Potatoes and vegetables - the potatoes were incredibly delicious which made up for the veg (some loose sweetcorn, a bit of broccoli and some carrot rings).
    Dessert of the white chocolate mousse was incredible - light, not too sweet and expertly put together.
    The dishes were expensive but the tastecard made the meal affordable and it was definitely worth it. I'd go back! "
