Really very good, It was recommended to me and didn’t disappoint, looking forward to returning.
food was good. like the small dish idea. would come back
gorgeous food, friendly staff and not to formal. great place for a chat.
Food was great, atmosphere was nice and service was great.
They place was great, really relaxed and fun atmosphere without feeling crazy - do note it was Sunday afternoon and not too busy. Staff are very friendly, service really good. Food was good, the stand out dishes for me were the mushroom steak, swordfish and courgette salad. My only comments/feedback would be that we would have liked all the dishes to arrive together, we waited a long time in between dishes with a very long wait on the last fish of prawns to the point we felt we had had enough and tried to cancel them.
Our second visit, this time bringing friends with us, table booked for 9.15 ( would have preferred earlier] , got there early and was told that kitchen shuts at 9.45 and restaurant at 11.00, all fine. Food amazing, all good until the guy in the checked shirt left , then we asked for desert and were told very firmly that we couldn’t have any as kitchen was closed so we asked for another bottle of wine which was slammed on the table by a young woman with plaits. From then on we saw the KP’s bringing all the rubbish bags through the restaurant, tables around us and other diners being spayed with cleaners accompanied by filthy looks from the staff. The couple we were with run a successful restaurant and in previous years one had been FOH at the Dorchester , so they were not at all impressed . We asked for the service charge to be taken off the bill which of course resulted in more of the evils. It was such a shame as we previously loved it there but if they can’t accommodate diners at 9.15 then don’t allow them to book tables.
It was a good visit and the food was good. Service was a bit slow at the end but very cordial and helpful. The place is a bit noisy for my taste but for a younger crowd its probably just right (classic rock was certainly to my taste!). Great place to have a simplified meal either pre-theatre or otherwise.
We had a lovely afternoon - food and drink were excellent but a shame there were no figs or vanilla ice cream. We were looked after fabulously by Viktor who definitely made the experience. Will come back for sure - Thankyou
Very amiable lunch with an old friend. Service was discreet and advice on the menu good and to the point. Food was good-ish, nothing to really call memorable but perfect for a relaxed lunch that was more about the conversation than fine dining.
Beautiful restaurant, great food, great people. But the music was way too loud, and the food came way too fast. We were stille enjoying our starter when the main course arrived. Felt like they wanted to see us leaving as soon as possible to fill the table again. Shame about the good food.
