The French ambiance hits you the minute you walk in the door, with its wonderful beamed ceilings, large stone fire place and general charm; you cannot help but be pleased to be there!  However, being typically French, don't expect all of your meals to arrive at the same time!  It is a little on the expensive side for these parts but it is definitely a bit of a treat.  This restaurant also has the added attraction of being air-conditioned.

A great choice of local restaurants to choose from

Reservations essential (especially at the weekends).  This exceptional restaurant is owned by an ex chef of the Savoy so his creative menu really is to a very high standard.  Seating is either downstairs where you can enjoy the full ambiance of this restaurant, or for a bit more privacy, upstairs where it's a little less noisy.  This delightful restaurant offers very friendly and a charming proprietor who will make you feel very welcome and special.  Although this restaurant does cater for children, we think it is probably more targeted for the adults so you can really take your time and enjoy the excellent gourmet foods and delicious cuisine and great wines.

Bon Appétit.....
