Had a delicious meal in a very relaxed atmosphere- staff were very attentive- there was nothing I cud complain about. (I really cannot understand why the hospitality trade are being treated so unfairly in these strange times- there's much more of a chance of getting Covid doing your grocery shopping than eating out in my view!!)

We had a superb brunch on Sunday afternoon It was made even better by the outstanding service of the staff. It was comforting to note that safe distancing was being observed in the restaurant and that full details of names, addresses and telephone numbers were required of all customers. We will be back as soon as the Executive allows us.

My breads and hummus were amazing. The Thai oil was delicious so I bought a bottle. My Italian pizza was so so delicious. My mum had the turkey dinner and was a little disappointed in what she got for the price and the fact that no veg or potatoes were included which is not usual when ordering a Christmas dinner.

Our first grandchild was born on Friday morning in Stockholm - daughter to Julie and Anders. We have our favourite restaurent in The French Rooms. You have a unique menu across the board with interesting daily specials. Your staff have a classic sense of humour - when I ask for a table next to the orchestra and near the palm trees - I don't wait for an answer ! Portstewart Strand was walked both ways after. Best , Robert

Absolutely love The French Rooms and delighted to see it so COVID-secure. I felt comfortable with socially distanced tables and all staff wearing masks and keeping their distance where appropriate. They even have a hand-washing station on entry! Now to the food... I cannot fault it - delicious! We shared a few ‘tiny starters’ - olives/hummus/baked cheese and some breads - tapas size and a good variety. I always have the gourmet platter which is much of the same - tiny pots of pâté/hummus/oils/potted shrimp/goat’s cheese along with breads and a selection of cold meats and pickles, topped off with a cup of Jocelyn soup. With a carafe of wine it really can’t be beaten! Other half went for turkey last night and our daughter, the burger. Everything was great. Portions sizes are quite big but we still managed a chocolate fondant and petites fours to finish. Super range of wines, beers, ciders and cocktails as well as milkshakes (including adult versions, if I remember correctly!) I have recommended the French Rooms to many friends and they have not been disappointed yet.

The French Rooms has been our favourite restaurant since it opened and has never disappointed. Very different menu,pleasant staff and lovely decor. The only small niggle is that the portions are small and so delicious,you always want more !! Apart from that,perfect for a romantic meal.

So good to be back at the French Rooms and it didnt disappoint. The staff are all so friendly and helpful and the food was superb. We particularly enjoyed the small tapas as a starter and the hake was to die for. The gf almond and clementine cake was perfect as a dessert for 2.

We had a really lovely meal here on Friday evening. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. The food was excellent and well presented. My only bug bear (and it is a small one) is that we both ordered flat white coffees and to be honest they were only luke warm. So disappointed in the coffee making but otherwise a really lovely meal and evening. Thank you.
