    A thoroughly enjoyable evening with excellent food. Spoilt for choice so we had all of the small plates, even the new ones written on the board during our visit. Squid, scallops and mussels among our favourites. Potatoes merited multiple orders. Eponymous 'prawn on the lawn' our least favourite, but only because of the competition from much stronger dishes.
    Friendly service and pleasant surroundings

    Popular restaurant and the food is consistently fresh and very good. We have been back a few times for this alone. Dishes are a little on the small side for the price so bulking out with the tasty fried potatoes is necessary. Very welcoming although at our last visit the service was inattentive and the kitchen was slow and forgetful - frustrating for a small (but busy) place. A well decked out, cool place to eat but given size can be noisy at peak times so not the place for an intimate chat. Good wine list but again a little pricey.

    This is an absolutely exceptional restaurant. Two of us tried a range of tasting plates, all of which were flawless. Interesting cocktail list and the wine list is reasonably priced. The service was charming and efficient. It is up there with Traiteur as my favourite restaurant in the area. Not too crowded at lunch time but I imagine that it gets rammed in the evening so book ahead.

    Fantastic! Can’t recommend the Schezuan prawns highly enough - favourite dish (although a difficult decision since everything was so tasty!). Great service too.

    We had visited before in the old smaller location. The food was still good, largely the same menu, but the service was pretty bad. We didn't receive some dishes, we didn't get drinks for half an hour after we had eaten starters then all the drinks came at once including wine. The tables were barely large enough to contain the crockery, and were crowded together. The whole place was very loud and filled with people waiting or complaining. The staff were very friendly but it was chaos and no one seemed to be in charge or know what was going on.
