I used to love this place due to the great views, cocktails and good food. But as all good places shareholders demand return so cut back in staff and encouraging overcrowding has taken away from this venue.
I chose to dine alone and the chef was really embarrassed by the lack of attention I was given by the waiter. I was not asked for a drink and after finishing my main meal I waited 30 mins before asking the chef how do I get the bill around here let alone a drink? He asked the waiters on 4 occasions to get my bill after which I decided to pick my bag and go visit the ladies. There was still no sign of my bill so I went to collect my coat from the cloakroom told the lady about my frustration an no sign of the bill. My coat arrived I put it on and the waiter came and accused of walking away without paying my bill. He still did not have the bill in his hand...I waited and was made to pay my bill in full with 12.5% service charge.
Management invited me to return again to have a bottle of prosecco on th house to make up the lack of service...Needless to say they don't understand how disrespected I felt having paid £60 + for a meal with no service...I was better off getting a take away in my home town
The brunch is a great taster and value for money at this high end restaurant. A nice relaxing ambiance makes for a cool Sunday afternoon with friends or partner. Food is very tasty and staff are helpful. The bubbles kept coming as soon as my glass was empty.
The place offers a nice dining experience with a different twist. Everything on the menu is Tapas style, first and second course. The servers recommend 4-6 tapas from both starter and main that 'will arrive as soon as they're ready'. That is all well and good but the £29 menu has three 'courses' that can hardly be considered a meal. More like a snack. Albeit, the cocktails are amazing and the taste of the food is remarkable. The desert is also great.
Pricy but very very good quality food. Would recommend if you have the cash to splash out on a nice Japanese!
Had a blast celebrating my birthday last night. The Autumn menu was delicious. From starter to dessert including cocktail signature, Affordable price. Staff and manager were very friendly and attentive. Big thanks to Nikos and Michael who made our night so special!
