It was a while ago when I used this restaurant. The best part was the food; excellent. Because the place wasn’t busy the day I was there, the staff seemed a bit bored and inclined to chat among themselves rather than serving me attentively. The...More

The menu was well balanced and very tasty. The starter of smoked pigeon sounded very appetising but the amount of pigeon was miniscule. I think 15grams is being generous. The main course of monkfish was perfectly cooked and went well with the wine that was...More

The Michelin starred Galvin brothers whose name the restaurant bears could only be disappointed with the food served here. A bland crab starter was followed by a thin cut rib-eye, ordered medium rare but served medium. If the crab was tasty it should have been...More
