    The food was fantastic and obviously the views were special The staff were very friendly but we found ourselves with empty glasses quite a lot of the time and had to attract someone’s attention for refills of water and wine. Definitely tarnished our experience

    Comically small vegan/vegetarian mains, otherwise fab! Chefs take note - veggies need carbs too!!

    Exceptional, very professional. They made a mistake about the dessert, we wanted a soufflé and we had a baba au rhum. They have been perfect : we kept the baba and they made a soufflé and we paid none of the desserts.
