Imagine the warm, inviting glow of a bustling Parisian bistro and you'll get some sense of the ambience created by proprietor Jean Jacques Fontaine at Chez JJ. This restaurant is about as intimate and cosy as you can get, with three floors of dining tables dressed in red-checked tablecloths, and candles in every corner providing beautifully subtle lighting. This little gem is a wonderful restaurant for friends and lovers alike.

This is no place for modern fads and trends though; Jean Jacques prides himself on providing traditional, old-fashioned French cooking. Chez JJ's menu is suitably packed with timeless classics: from French onion soup to moules marinières; simple lunchtime omelettes to slow-cooked leg of duck in juniper sauce.

It's fantastic value too, with excellent set menus and portions that reflect the enormous generosity of the friendly host. A T-bone steak big enough to satisfy any appetite arrived at our table with mounds of real French fries and a pot of authentic Béarnaise sauce, alongside a richly flavoured and incredibly filling Moroccan beef tagine. To follow, my concluding creme brulée was pleasingly smooth and velvety with a satisfyingly crisp lid.

If you're looking to be served by charming staff in a restaurant where the conversation flows as easily as the wine, Chez JJ is a great place to head.
