    Had lunch 26042014 with 2 friends. I close stuffed peppers to start, followed by risotto. Sadly no room for a delicious pudding! The food was excellent as always, this is my 6th visit & it never disappoints. The staff are friendly & professional & to great to see a restaurant so well used by locals, may of them Spanish. Another veggie choice would be great.

    The food was well cooked and well presented. My duck confit was well flavoured with an intense sauce that did not overwhelm the duck or spinach. My friend's sea bass was fresh and cooked perfectly. Our puddings were also good, my pear in red wine was a refreshing end to the meal. I would have like more choice in the wines by the glass but what was available was fine in itself.

    First time here, booked as close to Apollo. Lovely welcome, restaurant warm and inviting after the downpour outside. Great choice of food, attentive but unobtrusive service. Highly recommended.

    Excellent food, service, would definitely make a return visit and only minutes from Victoria train station.

    3 of us had lunch, the first time we'd visited, and we weren't too impressed. The food was only average and quite expensive for what it was and it was quite noisy, too. We certainly wouldn't recommend it.
