This bistro is easily the best dining experience in Kendal and has a great atmosphere, friendly and helpful service and great food on an interesting and varied menu. Gets very busy at lunchtimes so go early or late to get a table (no reservations). Enjoy - we always do

Been a few times. Very nice, but perhaps has been better. Last visit it all seemed a bit frantic. Cakes and drinks are very good. We are elevenses people so can't comment on the meals.
