I would have preferred to report a more positive experience having taken my wife for a birthday treat but the food was bland, dry and the quality of the meat poor and in my wife’s case so chewy that she had to abandon it. Very disappointing in view of its reputation

Wonderful evening. The staff, the ambience, the food. All absolute perfection as always. Cannot thank Benjamin and his team enough, another pleasant evening enjoying the finest of food, wines and service.

Our lunch was faultless - each course was so tasty and so beautifully displayed too. My starter was slices of duck breast; this was not the usual thick dark ,chunky slices, but was elegant and served with watercress, yellow beetroot and popcorn.
The cafetière of coffee accompanied by delicious petit fours rounded off this excellent meal. We had been told that nouvelle cuisine was served here.but we found the food portions were exactly right for us - good portions but not overwhelming

We had a lovely relaxing evening at the Mirabelle. The food was okay /good but not amazing. A little way to go before it gets a Michelin star. On that note I will say that the pricing is a tad pretentious and expensive for what it was. The wine list was good and extensive with some great wines but again mark up on lower priced wines was excessive. The service was amazing, as was the relaxed and exclusive atmosphere in the place, however it was not busy when we were there. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the service we had, it was wonderful but to be honest, the food could have been better, given the price. The wine we had was good but £53 a bottle was about £15 overpriced.
I think that this is a marvelous and quite classy restaurant, perhaps given more to the taste of an older clientele but lovely nevertheless. However it does price itself a little too high for the quality of the food.
You can have a wonderful set 3 course meal at Le Gavroche in London - 3 Michelin Stars and London prices for about the same price as we paid for the same at the Mirabelle. Set 3 course dinner for 2 with wine, coffee and petit four cost us about £186. Nice, but not nice enough for the money.
Mirabelle, don't pretend to be what you are not. Bring your prices down, and the quality of your food up and you will be absolutely fabulous.
As my school report card always said, "could do better..."

We've been fortunate enough to have enjoyed a few meals previously at the Mirabelle restaurant including 2 this year. Usually the food and service are exemplerary. Unfortunately this wasn't the case last week. The menu didn't inspire, the service was confused and the food patchy. The lobster had some lovely meal but some dry meat mixed in. The lemon sole was dry and not accompanied by a sauce. When this was pointed out at the end of the meal an apology was received and an explanation of miscommunication but that doesn't compensate for a ruined main course. Deserts were also a tad dreary. Hopefully an off night.
