    It was a very pleasant meal. After reading reviews we were prepared for small portions, however we were very pleased with the portions that were 3 balanced courses. The service was friendly and attentive. The restaurant had a decadent, luxurious feel. We took our time, 2 hours, and never felt rushed. The only thing to remember is that the set menu is a guide price, after a coffee and a shared bottle of sparkling water and the 12.5 service charge our bill rose by £12 p. Person. But that aside, will return, definitely.

    Service was very good. Food in general was very enjoyable but my wife’s octopus was sent back as it was too tough to eat.

  • (((** 13 December 2018 by Sally from London

    Welcoming, friendly staff. Very stylish restaurant, if a little dark. The outside roof terrace would be fabulous in the summer time.
    The three courses provided within our deal, although delicious, were very small portions and very limited on choice. The starter portion was ok, I won't usually eat three courses as I don't have a huge appetite. The same main course featured on the a la carte menu was priced at £32. Ours arrived and consisted of three very small bites of short rib. I can only assume that the full price portion would be very much more generous! It was very tasty but very fatty, so I even had to cut some off. The desert, although delicious, was three very small cubes no bigger than a square of chocolate. There was only one option.
    The included cocktail wasn't to my taste at all, but that's not the fault of the restaurant. No alternative was offered though, not even a small glass of wine.
    The restaurant was very quiet, even in December. I did like the surroundings and the food, but overall, even at the deal price, I didn't get value for money.

    We initially chose this restaurant for its location - and we were very pleased.We had the offer of 3 courses with cocktail for £25 - there is a service charge on top of this - the food arrived promptly and was delicious - no complaints

    Food was good, but dishes small. Ambience more suited to bar / nightclub than restaurant.

  • ((*** 30 November 2018 by Mr from london

    the atmosphere was good, the venue is very dark, the service was friendly, however, there was only one heater for the rooftop bar outdoor, not enough for a rooftop with 7 tables. the food was tasty, but the 3 course menu offer was served in a small portion that dont expect to get even half full from that, even the main course - beef dish was in a size of 4 pieces of finger food, pulled beef on thin slice of potato, the dessert was smallest 2 slice of cake that was a size of a tea spoon. they said the concept is to share the food, but within the 4 of us, the food portion is so small and choice so limited. i asked for gluten free bread as they served 4 slices of thin baguette size bread, i m allergic to wheat bread, they said there would be an additional £4 charge. no wonder on a sat night, the restaurant is so empty.
