However you will also find many other delightful and reasonably priced French wines on our extensive wine list.

French onion soup

Main course:

Eye fillet pepper steak, baby potatoes, French beans

Coq au vin, mushroom, lardons, Paris mash

Pickled hapuka, mustard coconut milk, zucchini basmati


Vanilla bean crème brûlée
