My husband and I visited for a belated anniversary lunch, the restaurant was busy and the staff were attentive without being overbearing. the choice of menu was very good and the food beautifully presented and tasted superb - the coffee panna cotta was sublime. Will definitely be coming back.

As always the food was superb as was the service, you can't fault this restaurant, apart from the fact it's in such high demand thou can't just walk in. I recommend you book well in advance, it's really, really worth it:-)

As soon as you walk in, everything is just right. The staff, furniture, quiet ambiance of this small restaurant makes for a perfect meal. The food was quite simply excellent. The added touches of an appetiser then sorbet between the courses and petit fours afterwards, little touches that meant a lot. Thoroughly recommended, you'll have a job to find a... More
