Harden's survey result
“No-nonsense French cuisine, done well” ensures that this city-centre bistro is “always busy”; and with its “small scuffed tables and chairs packed close together” somehow it “manages to feel intimate, while being crowded and buzzing”. Open for more than 20 years, it’s a survivor from a franchised 90s chain that went belly-up. “Absolutely love it here, the prices are amazing for delicious, classic food”.
“One of the few survivors from a nineties chain” – this “always-busting city-centre French Restaurant” delivers “such a good formula of a type that’s increasingly hard to find” (and is one of the most commented-on venues in town as a result). Service is “very rapid” but “friendly” and offers “simple”, “typical bistro fare” from a “wide range of classic dishes” that may be a tad “unexceptional”, but which come at “amazingly cheap prices (including the wine)”.
Who doesn’t have a “soft spot for this traditional, bistro-type-of-outfit”? – this “buzzy” survivor of the once-national group actually “seems like a genuine French restaurant” in its own right. The food is “not out of this world”, but “efficient, friendly service” and “excellent value” contribute to what’s a “pleasant informal experience” overall.
“Exceptional value for money” (pre-theatre and lunch menus are a particular bargain) underpins the huge popularity of this “buzzing and well-organised” survivor of what was once a national chain – “everything a French bistro should be, with recognisably Gallic dishes and efficient service”.
