“Quaint” and “very French” (“in a non-posey sort of way”, i.e. “like being in a really good quality restaurant in provincial France”), the Ogrodzki family’s diminutive Gallic haunt was “thoroughly enjoyed” by reporters again this year thanks to its “beautifully presented and perfectly cooked” traditional fare.

The Ogrodzki’s properly Gallic restaurant (no franglais here) continues its successful run; even the very odd cynic praises “charming” hostess Elisabeth and some “absolutely delicious” dishes of a traditional bent.

Yves and Elisabeth Ogrodzki’s decidedly Gallic four-year-old turns out traditional food with good attention to sourcing; ratings are consistently solid here and it’s “not expensive”.

The Ogrodzki’s Gallic three-year-old is a real hit locally – “how wonderful to find a truly French restaurant in Cheltenham, serving satisfyingly traditional food”.
