Access very the lift to a lovely bar looking over Cabot circus. Nice relaxed atmosphere, huge list of cocktails, faultless but very slow service

We visit this restaurant reasonably regularly as their fixed price menu, at £22 for 3 courses is excellent value and cleverly uses cheaper ingredients to create beautifully presented, delicious dishes. In addition to the 3 courses, a complimentary amuse bouche and a fabulous selection of artisan bread is also served. Service is always good - friendly and welcoming without being... More

Been a regular here since it opened, see previous reviews. We ate on Sunday, admittedly, later in the afternoon. The portions were generous, well presented and the standard of cooking very high, as you'd expect from the reputation, so no issues here! But we felt the service was a bit lacking in paces, we just didn't feel looked after. We... More

Popped in to Harvey Nichols for an impromptu lunch. The restaurant was surprisingly quiet. Food was excellent as always. There was a good, varied choice of options on both the set and a la carte menus. I opted for the cauliflower soup which was smooth, flavoursome, and had a nice, robust consistency. For mains I chose the chicken Brady, which... More

Superb lunch today. Love the ambience. Feels really special. We had the set menu, which was excellent especially the floating island. Good service. Will go again.

Came here twice for two birthdays as we enjoyed the experience so much the first time round. Food and drink both great and service was lovely, just on the right side of attentive but not overbearing. Food very reasonably priced. Not much choice for vegetarians but staff were happy to substitute the meat in the dishes for something else, which... More

Enjoyed a nice Birthday treat here in Jan. It's the first time I've been here and will definitely go again. The food was excellent, and so was my Vodka Fizz Cocktail.
