This “relaxed French bistro offering contemporary cuisine and good service” from chef-patron Pascal Wiedermann (ex-Terroirs) and his wife Laura has established a strong niche in Summertown, north of the city centre. A meal here is “always an enjoyable experience” – on a relatively “limited” menu, top billing goes to the steak frites.

The “consistently high standard of cooking” at this French wine bar and bistro from Laura & Pascal Wiedermann (ex-Terroirs) in the north Oxford suburb of Summertown make it a valued favourite for numerous reporters, some of whom had their best meal of the year here. The “professional team makes us very welcome”, and the “set meals are really good value”.

“Quality cuisine in a pleasant north Oxford location with outside terrace” is to be found at Laura and Pascal Wiedermann’s wine bar and dining room. Formerly of highly rated London ventures Racine and Terroirs, it offers a similarly Frenchified mix of (quite rich) cuisine and quality wines. Top Tip: “imaginative and tasty lunch / early evening set menus are cracking value”.

“A very welcome arrival on the Oxford map” – in Summertown – Pascal and Laura Wiedemann’s charcuterie, wine bar and dining room offers “beautiful” dishes, in a similar Gallic mould to Pascal’s former work at London’s Racine and Terroirs. Many reporters note that the lunch prix fixe is “an especially great deal”, while dinner is much less of a steal.

"Having mostly stuck to Central Oxford for years, this was a very pleasant surprise. Menu and wine list impressive, resolutely French. Choux dessert surprisingly delicious."
