    The manager I believe was so attentive as we’re the staff very good service. Food quality was excellent. The downstairs dining was too hot however I believe a request had been made by a diner to turn off the air con, we were offered dining by the window at the street level of restaurant and it was perfect.

    Great location for pre-theatre dinner. Food was a little slow in coming, but good when it arrived.

    Had a very good experience. Table read when we arrived. I had asked for a table I the window as it was a special birthday outing. Thank you. Food and service really good. Could not fault it. Had the baked brie and the ses bass. Perfect for a warm evening!! We had a two hour slot at the table and they were happy for my niece to come and join us for the last part of the meal. I would recommend Thi restaurant and ideally situated for the royal opera house, where we had seen the ballet.

    Lovely little French brasserie with a nice atmosphere, feels like your in a Paris cafe.It was very busy when we first arrived with pre-theatre goers, by about 7pm it was calmer and more relaxed but throughout the waiters were friendly and efficient. We enjoyed baked Camembert,Mussels and beef Bourguignon as well as Kir royale.

    We came here for the bottomless afternoon tea as we’ve been before and really enjoyed the experience. Once again the service was great, a waitress was always keeping a eye on our Prosecco glasses and made sure they were never empty. The afternoon tea itself was also very enjoyable and good quality. We will definitely come again.

    My friend and I sat downstairs in a cavernous area which added to the atmosphere. We had the set meal - 3 courses and a Kir Royale. It was delicious, fresh, and plentiful. My starter was the squash and spinach salad which had my taste buds tingling. My friend had the fried brie which she said was full of flavour. The main course I chose was trout on a bed of mashed potato. The fish was moist and perfectly cooked. My friend had the minute steak and chips which, judging by the empty plate she enjoyed. We had our Kir Royale with our dessert, - Chocolate tarte with vanilla ice-cream for my friend - that was huge and enough to share. My mango sorbet was the perfect end to my meal, being light but dense in flavour. The total bill included wine and was surprisingly reasonable. A definite winner.
