    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.

    Food excellent, service good but a bit slow. Overall it was an excellent time. The only thing I was disappointed about was the request that I went to a table by the window with a beautiful view and I did not do it .. Thank you...

    Service was rather slow to start with, we struggled to get a 2nd drink, but it did improve.

    We indicated in the booking that we wanted a table with a view of the skyline however, was provided a table elsewhere instead on the day which was disappointing. However, the service was great and the food delicious. The risotto was a little more runny than I was used too. The caviar starter was extraordinary and the scallops starter was delicious! My cod fish main was cooked to perfection and the venison my husband had was fantastic. The complimentary dessert (celebrating our wedding anniversary) was a great touch and made the difference of feeling appreciated (compared to the initial feeling when we arrived and not gotten the table we indicated in the booking). Mainly due to that final touch, we would come back.

    Not impressed at all Wine was attempted to be upsold. Some major items were not available from the menu. Desert was oversold and portions of the deserts were ridiculous. Would not attend again.
