We love this place - straightforward menu with excellent service and a lethal selection of cocktails. Always sat downstairs in the bistro so next time we'll try the upstairs restaurant. The background music was terriffic - modern 'swing' which adds to the atmosphere (and not too intrusive). Probably rate Coco ahead of the Ivy now...
A criticism? The foie gras serving was really small...but compensated for by a giant pot of moules.

Almost excellent, which for TW says something. Better than most in TW for sure. Relaxed atmosphere and, most of all, they seem genuinely determined to provide excellent service.The menu is extensive enough without trying to do too much and the food was very good. Only complaint on that front was that the very nice rolled pork came with no veggies other than potatoes, so just meat and one veg :-)

We enjoyed an excellent family meal for four here last week. The upstairs restaurant seating is a lovely comfortable area, nicely decorated and roomier and a bit quieter than the bustling downstairs bistro area. It was a very busy night but the service kept on top of everything and there were no delays. The menu offers a very good selection and all of our selections were just the right size and perfectly cooked. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and were pleasantly surprised when the bill arrived - this was great value for the quality of the meal.

We have been three times over the summer and each time have been impressed with the welcoming staff, menu, ambience, food and service. We have not yet eaten in the restaurant, but each time in the Bistro. There is a good choice on the reasonably priced menu and wine list. I am surprised at the recent mixed reviews on Tripadvisor as our experience has been consistently good and from my previous reviews of other restaurants you will work out we are quite picky........

Group of Eight and placed in lovely upstairs room next to on view kitchen.
Starters of Fous Gras,mushroom arancini, salmon, tomatoes with morzarella, charcuterie were excellent.
Mains of Burger ( for child) , braised steak, sea bass, duck and lamb tagine were perfect. Deserts and cheese board an excellent completion. All accompanied by a fruity white and a lovely Italian red.
Staff excellent. An ideal place for a large group or just a couple.
Will definitely be back.
A fabulous birthday meal and successful GCSE results for my granddaughter and my 74th birthday ( ouch!!)
Highly recommended.
