This newish restaurant compares very favourably with other top restaurants in St Francis Bay. It is run by a passionate Belgian who obviously knows how to keep his customers happy - and well fed. The food was first class and there was a good choice of wine. Seeing croquettes de crevettes and crepes Suzette on the menu was a real discovery.

We stopped overnight in this town and visited this restaurant for a bite to eat after a recommendation from the guest house owner.. The service was excellent with well cooked food and wine. The prices were also reasonable.

Had the pleasure of enjoying lunch 3 times at this tucked away Bistro. the first time it was a mushroom risotto the likes of which I never eaten - absolutely superb! The 2nd time was chicken schnitzel and the 3rd time was chicken fillets with a mushroom and brandy type sauce. Brilliant. The cherry on top of the meals was the Crepes Suzette - ask for them if you don't see it on the menu. WOW! The best I have ever eaten!! Everything is cooked by the French chef while you wait, and the flavours are 5 ***** plus. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough - it was wonderful experience. The prices are really good. It is a must !!

My husband and I stayed in St Francis Bay for four nights, such a beautiful town, white washed houses with thatched roofs, a must see, very quaint, like an English country village. We found Pommes Frites on our second night as we went off the trip advisor reviews. We weren't disappointed, what a great little place. We both had beef fillet, it was cooked to perfection. It was so good that we went back the following two nights and ordered the same dish. The owner Jean-Pierre is a lovely man. He introduces himself to his guests and builds a rapport. The ambiance is lovely, Small and friendly.
You will not be disappointed, give the place a visit when in St Francis Bay and mark my word, you will go back for more. Very reasonably priced too. He is very passionate about his food and wants everything to be perfect which it is. His family work with him and also his assistant chef called Michel. As Jean-Pierre said we came as guests and left as friends. Give it a try. Top notch food.
