    Lovely location and food was enjoyed by all. Burger, pizza, Caesar salad and salmon of fillet dishes were all very generously portioned, and the desserts too. Extensive cocktail and wine list. Service a little slow towards the end when we asked for the bill, but with the food it was all very prompt. Not a low budget option but the location, views, ambience and quality of the food and drinks was all very good and everything worth the price. Would definitely go again and recommend it to friends.

    When I booked the table, I left a little note explaining that it was my friends birthday and if there was anything extra they could do, I’d really appreciate it (even if there was an extra cost) and they brought out a little birthday cheesecake with a candle on it at the end of our meal! It was so sweet and thoughtful, and our waiter was also extremely lovely and helpful for the entirety of our night. Gorgeous food and cocktails, wonderful service, would recommend to everyone!

    Fairly disappointing experience. Food was average. Tiny selection of tea for an afternoon tea - which seems odd. Clotted cream clearly reused - not great. Lack of care and attention to detail for an afternoon tea experience, which is sad given the stunning location and views!

    It was a lovely lunch! We got a beautiful table by the window and the waiter Tadas was just great! Very attentive and friendly! Sunday roast was delicious and the portion size really generous. Dessert were great too, we had cheesecake and brownies, would definitely recommend Very nice experience.

    I’m sorry to say ... A mediocre and disappointing dining experience for the price. Staff pleasant and helpful enough and the food was good enough but not so special given the prices. The hype about a panoramic view is just that, hype. On a dark, early winter evening, all you can see is people in their houses going about their lives.

    It's been a while since my partner and I had eaten out and I wanted something special for my partner's birthday. I wasn't disappointed! We arrived quite early but the manager couldn't have been more accommodating, finding us a table so we could enjoy some of the many superb cocktails available. The staff were extremely friendly but not intrusive. There was no pressure to order and no one hanging around to collect plates etc. The Covid safety measures had clearly been thought out and other than having to leave early, did not spoil the experience. The two cocktails we tried were amazing and the champagne was spot on. The after dinner gin also went down a treat! The food was delicious. We had a starter and main course. Portion sizes were just right and the flavours were amazing. I was fascinated to watch the bar staff do their thing and was very grateful for the two extra taster cocktails one of them brought to the table. Although we had to leave by 10, the staff did their best not to rush us and were polite about the new requirements. A taxi was ordered on our behalf and we left Six as very happy first time customers. A fantastic and memorable night out for us and one we will remember. We can't recommend this restaurant enough and thanks to all the staff who are working so hard to provide such a great experience in such challenging times.
