    Fun, lively atmosphere and great food! We were a bit disappointed as we booked for the 3 course dinner deal but when we arrived were told it was not available

  • (((** 22 May 2017 by Kelly from London

    Cool venue but overpriced for the food you get

  • (((** 22 May 2017 by ORapsu from London

    Whilst I liked the food I felt that the dining area was too noisy as it was between the bar and terrace. Service in the beginning was also not really good although that improved towards the end.

    We had the bookatable deal but were all disappointed with the lack of choice, exceedingly small portions and not able to chose our own cocktail... (the one we were given was very sweet and mostly just a glass of crushed ice!) Sadly came away feeling the experience was somewhat disappointing.

    Very nice, we had the spring set menu which was very good value considering their a la carte and cocktail prices! Although the portions were not huge, for me it was just right and the food was delicious (as was the cocktail!) The service was also very attentive

    Beautiful place, great location. It's very trendy which has its positives and negatives. Good was good (but not exceptional) but unfortunately the service was beyond poor.

    Most of the food was fantastic. Not much of it though for our deal (especially the sashimi starter was minuscule), the beef main was very nice but again quite small and the cheesecake desert was disappointingly small and tasteless. The food is really good but the place has no vibe, no ambiance. The restaurant seems like a railway station with people constantly going from the bar to the beautiful roof top terrace and back with the door open and the cold coming in. Good service but I wouldn't pay their prices regardless of the quality of the food if you feel you're sitting in a canteen.
