Went for Saturday lunch and at 1pm the place was pretty busy. Hadn’t been before but had an idea what it would be like after a trip to their other restaurant on Talbot Street.
Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. The menu is interesting and had a good range on offer, but in the end we had a rare steak with skinny chips and a chicken pie with mash. Food was really good quality and they clearly take pride in the presentation of the food they serve up.
Definitely recommend it, look forward to going back.

First visit last night and was really looking forward to going here. Got a warm welcome and invited to take a seat for drinks while we waited on our table. 25 minutes after taking our drinks order, a waiter came to say they didn’t have some of the drinks and we could have something else instead. Half an hour later we got our first drink, one of the cocktails was luke warm. The other was dreadful.
For starter, we ordered a platter to share between five. We were served five separate dishes, each with the same thing. A chicken thigh and a piece of fried paneer cheese.
For main course, two of us ordered lamb, they brought us both chicken instead. Wasn’t great, and at this point had given up.
The decor is nice, and it could have easily been a great night out - they really need to make more of an effort in looking after their customers and serving what people actually ask and pay for.
Won’t be back.

What a great little restaurant - perfect service, relaxed and in no way pretentious. The food was really good - had the cold meat platter to start which was served with various cheeses and an onion chutney. The menu of the day had great value pasta dishes - the meatballs were very good. Inside is tiny which in way adds to the charm. Really glad to find somewhere different that serves very good food that doesn’t cost a fortune. Will be back

Nice interior and relaxed feel about this place. Agree with admur about the slight language barrier with some staff - simple questions about the dishes could not be understood or answered by our waiter, but otherwise the staff were very friendly.
The food was good, salted chilli squid was a bit tough but the steamed dim sum were very good (they normally deep fry them so say if you prefer them steamed). For mains had chinese roast duck which was excellent and well presented. The prawn Korean dish didn’t really match the menu description, it was good - just not what we expected. Portions are pretty big for the prices, which are reasonable.
Would go back no problem, nice to see a restaurant like this outside the city centre.

Have been here a few times now and it’s always consistent and very good. Staff are great and there’s a nice atmosphere about the place. As well as that, it’s good value for money.

Set on the Ormeau Road, this little French restaurant is a world away from the trendy restaurants down town and is all the better for it.
Admittedly the outside is pretty drab looking, but once you get inside it’s a lively place - all ages and types come for the straight-forward, homely food. It’s a good idea to book as it fills up really fast.
The menu hadn’t changed much from my last visit. Starters included goat’s cheese salad, pigeon breast and garlic mussels - mains featured swordfish, duck and a very good steak. Desserts are worth having too, the profiteroles take some beating.
It’s bring your own wine which is great and there’s a good off licence nearby.
The mainly French staff are helpful and friendly, the atmosphere is fun and the place is clean. You won’t get matching cutlery, linen napkins or fancy wine glasses - refreshingly, it ain’t that sort of place.
Our bill came to just under 50 quid for 2 (3 courses each) so it’s good value for money. I’d really recommend it.
