    Restaurant had a pleasant atmosphere and the food was amazing.
    If you want some feedback for improvement..
    The service was friendly but inattentive. It wasn't busy but it took 20mins before anyone came to our table to take our drinks order. We had our shared starter on napkins, only got offered drinks once at the beginning and had finished them by the time we had our mains... no water.... steak knives forgotten... never got asked if we were happy with our food... only got desserts menus after we asked.... it took so long for the waitress to return to our table to take our dessert and coffee order, we just asked for the bill at the bar. The waitress was with the table next to us for a long time, didn't even acknowledge that we all had our coats on ready to leave, that we just left the cash on the table and left.
    although we had a good time, felt somewhat disappointed by the service (or the lack of it) as we were celebrating a special day. We appreciate that you had reserved us a nice table for the occasion though.

    Everything we had was very nice. But not as nice as ussual.
    The plates were more simple and the menu changed. I think, to many hamburguer now.
    I love this restaurant, because of the nice location and the beautiful food we normally have. Fresh, healthy, well elaborated, good qualitty of ingredients...
    I believe, maybe you have change the chef.... and that makes a lot of difference i don't know.

    Do not get me wrong, i am not saying the food was bad. Just, the standar was a bit lower.

    I remember the first time i went, i had hake, with a hazelnut and praline sauce.
    The plating was amazing and the taste even better.
    We also had some pork belly with baked apple compote and somthing else i cant remember. The pork belly was just melting in your mouth! It was delicious and the combination of flavours was very unuasuall and very very good.

    We had hake yesterday too.... it wasn't the same. The plating wasn't amazing and the taste was just good. :( :( The rest of us, we had the fish and chips. Nothing else from the menu was inviting us to eat. The ingredients and combination were to simple. Just the same as you can have somewhere else...

    For sure, we will come back another time. And i hope, you rich the same level as before very very soon!

    Just for your information, the fourth of us we work as chefs. So, we know a little bit what we are talking about. Hahahaha

    Wish you a lovely day.
    Kind regards.

    Food was excellent, but service wasn't great initially and I think they have an identity crisis (between tourist fare or fine dining).
    No drinks offered when we got to the table and we only got to order anything once we managed to call over a waitress (after 20mins+). After that the food arrived quickly and was first rate.

    Wonderful position looking on to the river made for a perfect brunch. Scrambled eggs with truffles also made for something very different and enjoyable. Service was good. The meal was a meeting between friends but will consider it for a business meeting in the future.

    Have been before and it was lovely but this time the main meal wasn't cooked properly not what I would expect for the price charged and the restaurant was quiet

    This was my first visit to this restaurant and we were celebrating my friends birthday. We started with cocktails in the Terrace Bar, then moved down to our table in the restaurant. The service was very good and our meals were lovely. The Beef salad was delicious. We can all recommend the chunky chips! Lovely evening and plan to visit again in the summer to enjoy the river views.

    Requested a window table overlooking the river Thames. Had a lovely lunch - the service was great, attentive without being intrusive, and the food was absolutely delicious!
