As the name suggests, there’s a certain Gallic charm to this “delicious French restaurant” – a relaxed but classy venue specialising in seafood. The decor is suitably bright and breezy, while menus keep things accessible with an array of daily fixed-price deals at very reasonable prices. Otherwise, the full carte cranks up the ante with a couple of book-in-advance plateaux de fruits de mer – the ‘royal’ version features lobster, crab, langoustines, oysters, whelks, tiger prawns and mussels. If that doesn't appeal, dip into the day’s haul for spanking fresh ideas such as raw Cornish mackerel marinated in red wine with black radish, mâche leaves and goats’ curd or sea bass fillet with pumpkin velouté and smoked onion sauce. Some plainer classics are also on show, alongside a few meaty alternatives (fillet of beef with beetroot and back peppercorn sauce, say). Overall, “nothing compares”, according to one regular.
