While it's still The French Cafe, the food style is quite different - and exceptional. The attention to detail is commendable, and tastes were great. Service was a little slow, especially with our initial drinks. Overall though, very good.

Enjoyed our night but the food and service were just not up there.

The fit out has aged as well

Just running on it’s past reputation and the tank is getting low. Bit of a shame. Probably needs to be reborn / made over to get a refreshed life if it’s own.

Thanks for the feedback, as you can imagine refurbishment has been interrupted with Covid-19 last year, although some was completed. Other refurbishment is continuing this year. We do not believe in trading on the restaurants past reputation alone and are reinvesting and reinventing the wheel. Hope to welcome you in the future.

Under the expert care and attention of our waiter cum wine steward, Dylan, the six in our group had one of our most memorable evenings ever. Every facet of the meal, surroundings, ambience, and impeccable service was exceptional. Thank you very much.

Beautiful balance of elegant and tasty food, effortless service and ambiance. Couples were in a different area from groups and large groups which was perfect to enjoy exceptional flavours elegantly presented. A memorable dinner.

Our party of 6 were seated in a lovely private room for a wonderful degustation birthday celebration. The menu catered for a gluten free diner and a vegetarian, all of us were delighted with the interesting tasty food dishes and the well chosen wine selections.
