* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

A “cosy restaurant with excellent food in the centre of Oxford, with a particular focus on seafood” and a Gallic touch to its brasserie cooking, as well as a stylish green-walled interior and dedicated bars for cocktails AND Champagne/oysters. It’s “well worth a visit”, especially at lunch when the “prix fixe menu always delivers, and is a steal at about £12 for two courses”.

“At last Oxford is getting some good restaurants” say fans of this very central Gallic-tinted British brasserie, est. 2017, who praise its “super” food and a well-appointed interior (green walls, copper tables) that “feels special” – partly due to fancy additions like the dedicated cocktail and Champagne/oyster bars. It did, though, also inspire the odd ‘off’ report.

“A stylish new venue in Oxford” with “green walls and copper tables” – this “hard-surfaced” modern British brasserie is praised as a useful addition with “excellent” standards in the city-centre.

"We had a fantastic meal here, the staff were extremely helpful and displayed smiling professionalism throughout. The food was delicious and beautifully presented, special mention for the Cornish Ray Wing which was perfectly cooked and the rhubarb and cardamom pudding which was a delight of flavours and textures, but nothing we ordered was disappointing. I will be back here soon."
