Fantastic food, service and all round ambience. What more can I say?! Helen offers a friendly service with excellent knowledge and the menu is to die for. I shall be back again, and again and again.

I highly recommend Lumiere! The staff is so friendly, very knowledgeable, and accommodating. It's very quaint, so perfect for conversation and comfort. The food was delicious! We were absolutely full when we left, but loved every morsel. Reservations are a must, so book early.
