We went here during London Restaurant Week, and they had a 5 course with bubbles for £65. The menu is adapted for everyone on the day, which we loved. It meant that the people on the table opposite were having something totally different to us. We couldn't decide which was our favourite course, there were so many to choose from. The whole menu encompassed so many of my favourite things; foie gras, truffle, venison, salted caramel. It really was beautifully presented, incredibly cooked, and delicious.
Service was attentive, but subtle. It was a very relaxed meal, and you didn't feel any pressure to rush. I would say that it was not overly busy- which was a shame, especially seeing it was a Friday night. However, it was an outstanding meal, and certainly somewhere I would highly recommend.
Fabulous food, faultless service! Just 2 tiny observations. Was not a fan of the background music......too modern and untuneful, not pleasing on the ears. We also both found the table centre leg to large to place our legs comfortably which made us both lean back and look incredibly relaxed at the table, my apologies to fellow diners. Would absolutely recommend this restaurant none the less and would dine here again. Thank you to all the staff.
Perfectly cooked food, fantastic flavour combos, delicate presentation. The service was also excellent, the staff made us feel incredibly welcome and the sommelier was very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend. (And for people complaining about the music, if you spent more time focussed on your dinner partner and less on the music you might not notice it - we certainly didn't).
It's a Michelin star restaurant. What more can I say that an accreditation like that can't say for me? Perfect ambience, lovely attentive staff, amazing food. We had the tasting menu with paired wines skipping dessert (we aren't sweet people but I did spy the dessert and almost regretted my decision!). For a special occasion I can't flaw it. They even had a Western Australian wine so I was chuffed (Cullen).
Decided to visit here because of the reputation for great food, we were not disappointed.
As we arrived we were seated in the ‘bar’ area and shown menus, the staff were friendly yet professional.
The drinks were accompanied by canapes which weren’t overly fussy as they invariably can be in Michelin restaurants, these were tasty and straightforward, a perfect start to a tasting menu.
The tables are well spaced and beautifully dressed in proper linen and nice glassware, no sign of stripped back Formica and strangely shaped receptacles!
Without describing every course or the wines, I can say that everything we tasted and smelled, was a real sensation. From 1st course to finishing with coffee we were not disappointed with anything and never had to question why an ingredient was included, or whether it added any value.
The service was attentive without being obtrusive, something rarely achieved in these fine dining experiences. The staff are a credit to the establishment and definitely worth the service charge.
All round an excellent evening, great value for money and would recommend to friends and family without hesitation.
We visit London from the Midlands so cannot make it every weekend, but will definitely make sure we see these guys again whenever possible.
