We had the set menu that was very good but were not sure that black olives were a good accompaniment for sea trout (main course) and were surprised to have only pate for the charcuterie starter ( it was very good, but I did wonder whether it was a mistake, apparently not so). The 2012 Savigny les Beaune was underwhelming considering the price. The tarte tatin was superb. The food was very good value. The setting and ambience were very good, and the service impeccable. Overall one of the nicest restaurants we have been to in London and we will certainly go again.

The restaurant had no record of the booking whatsoever. We did manage to get a table but I was concerned that there was no record of teh booking despite your confirmation e-mails.

Excellent service, lovely staff, attentive but not intrusive. Wonderful food and a mango soufflé to die for.
