My wife and I ate here for the first time last night, with two friends who go there reasonably often (and whose daughter is a major fan). Apart from the somewhat overpriced wine list (I could only find two wines at prices I considered appropriate for the wine), I have to say I was mightily impressed.
The place is not at all pretentious, but it is comfortable. The food is not cheap, but it is good value and absolutely delicious and very well presented. The service was not servile, but it was friendly, smiling and attentive. My crispy hen's egg with truffles was a great way to start and the veal was just “melt in the mouth” tender, beautifully pink in the middle and tasted sublime. I also had a taste of my wife's poussin with leg pie,,, clearly the dish was on the “bijou” side, but the miniature pie's crust was absolutely right and the contents together with the artichoke (if memory serves) on which it was sitting was again, just great.
So far as food is concerned, this place scores a 9+ with me. The food and drink score is 8 overall as I really do think that there ought to be a red “house wine” at around the £20 mark as well (though the red Pays D'Oc Cabernet Sauvignon was acceptable as the sole “entry level” wine).
Hope the second visit is as good as the first !
