Up market restaurant in a quiet residential area. Great for lunch then a walk in Kensington Gardens, or a dinner to impress.

Lots of creativity in the food, in addition to being delicious. It’s one of our favorite places in London.

Excellent all round as usual. The pre-starter was fantastic, really carefully presented. Service very good, discreet but there when you needed it. A nice touch was a brownie on a 'Congratulations' plate for our son who had just graduated.

Had a lovely tasting menu meal here. Everything was very good. Staff were friendly and attentive without being too attentive. Not cheap but it was a special event meal and a good place to go for a special treat.

We had the lunch menu. The choice was good and the food delicious. We loved the extras like the amuse bouche, the wacky candy floss, the homemade bread and selection of butters, the very tasty yet not heavy food beautifully presented and the selection of petit fours. The staff were very polite and friendly, the wine superb and the venue very pleasant. A truly lovely fine dining experience which was exceptionally good value. We shall be back. Tony and Chrissie
