Harden's survey result
“Huge portions” of “good wholesome food” make this “cheap and cheerful” Gallic outfit serving bistro classics “amazing value for money”. There’s a good selection of “fine wines”, but the place is “very noisy indeed”.
“A bit of France in the middle of Maidstone”, serving “huge portions of wholesome food” (e.g. cassoulet, chicken chasseur, …) and “an excellent choice of (350+) wines” (plus gins) in the new bar next door. The only low point? It’s “very busy” since the expansion and “does get noisy”.
This “original gem in Maidstone” is “always full and buzzy” owing to its “very reasonable prices” and “great authentic” French cuisine. New development: “Frederic has now extended into the two shops next door” for his wine and cheese bar, home to a vastly expanded (350+) library of French wines (“especially Bordeaux”).
“A touch of France in the middle of Maidstone”; reporters praise the “true Gallic cooking” at this “lovely little bistro” whose “extremely good value” cuisine and “very good portions” ensure that it’s “always packed with happy diners!”
Frederic Bistro Restaurant Diner Reviews
"The lunch menu has a limited choice of main dishes, but they are well cooked and presented. A good choice of delicious pastries for dessert. The outside tables, under the arches, are a pleasant place to sit on a warm day."
