We came to PG for lunch, on the recommendation of a chef-friend who was singing the restaurant’s praises. I’m sad to say that the standard of the food did not quite meet our expectations. Our tuna starter was very good, but both main dishes (John...More

Top flight from seating to dessert. The service and atmosphere were perfect. Haut Cuisine but not pretentious which I really appreciate. Our server Tom was warm, friendly and attentive. The foie gras with pineapple sounded strange but was truly one of the best taste experiences...More
