My absolute favourite place to eat. Service is really friendly and efficient and food is superb - really interesting combinations in inventive dishes, always perfectly cooked. Can't wait for my next visit!

Website very good but doesn’t allow for communication which was zero on two occasions. Service in restaurant very good, freshness and presentation of oysters excellent, ability to adapt set menu appreciated. Chard and Kale not a veg I would choose but full marks for attempting something healthy and different.Wine prices high for a muscadet but well chosen. Desserts a triumph.

It was our first time, me and my wife had brunch. I can honestly say it was the best breakfast we had ever eaten. The food was out of this world, the service was bang on !!!!! And we were made to feel so welcome and appricieated. We will be back as soon as we can for dinner. Loved it!!!!!!!

The food is good and all the things are right, but something does not quite click. Have you got new operators, ownership, management? Maybe you have to decide if you are a neat little cafe or a bistro or 'bouchon'. There are plenty of coffee shops in the town. I do not envy you getting the traffic necessary to make the business viable. Or maybe our choice of a Friday lunch time in January is not a fair test of your offering. Will I come again? Yes, but do not bother buying in your puddings!
