“Fantastique!” – Pascal & Karine Canavet’s “little piece of France in Suffolk” goes “from strength to strength”, providing “an absolutely first rate” combination of “fabulous and exquisitely presented” Gallic fare, “charming” and “so professional” service and “elegant surroundings”. In particular the “super fish dishes always hit the mark”. “We usually visit at lunchtime and have to drive through two counties to get there!!”

Reviewed 6 months, 4 days ago

"The best service I have ever encountered -- perfect in terms of pace and timings. Courteous and charming, without being oily or sycophantic. At lunch, the set price of £32 for 3 courses, plus amuse bouche, petits fours and bread, is wonderful value. The cooking is confident and refined. Only one, tiny criticism: the amuse bouche of melon and Parma ham was mediocre."
