This is Oxford's Grill Lebanese restaurant.
A 1995 photo by Martin Stott (right) shows the restaurant named as "Ma Belle" bistrot. It was at some point called L'Escargot run by Andre Chavagnon, the chef who opened La Sorbonne in the High Street in 1966, where several famous chefs such as Raymond Blanc began their careers.
It was 'Joe’s Café' during the 1990s and early 2000s, as listed in Thomsons Directory 1999 and 2008: "No 21 Joes Café".
