My husband and I were there Valentines night. The food was fabulous, but the portions were tiny. One slice of potato and two tiny baby carrots! I do think they could have made an effort for Valentines night, a rose on each table, something simple....More

My husband and I visited Lautrecs last Thursday evening for a quiet meal. The food was absolutely beautiful and the atmosphere was romantic and cozy! We would highly recommend this little spot to anyone. We're already planning a return!

Disappointed from the moment we walked in. Checked menu online pre-arrival, different menu on the night, very little choice. Only steak on offer was Striploin- very poor cut for restaurant standard yet still cost the equivalent of a premium cut. No vegetable accompaniment and chips...More

Went for dinner tonight with my mum 20/1/16. Was told that a new Chef had just started and had just finalised new Menu. The goats cheese starter and blow torched prawns were the perfect appetiterser. We then had the steak and seabas for mains. Photos...More

Wonderful evening with friends. Food and service were fab. They had changed chef since our previous visit so food wasn't as good but pizza is always good and service is just excellent.

Had visited here in 2014 and loved it. They don't do tapas anymore but we decided to give it a try anyway. Upon arriving it was really cold but the girl said she'd put us in a warm spot. To be honest I don't think...More
