“Genuinely French staff, owner and food. Sebastian is a wonderful host as are his staff. We appreciate that many can speak French. The wine list is good and the dishes we have sampled after three visits continue to amaze. Their home-made salmon terrine is superb. We highly recommend this restaurant.”- Brett Furlonger
