The brunch was really great - food delicious and the service spot-on. We had bottomless prosecco and our glasses were never empty! The restaurant is lovely and bright, and has fantastic views over the Thames.

Booking accepted for 6:30 but moved us to 7:30.. we csmenin to ask for a table at 5:30 and happily received a window table.service was good . Food delicious. Surprised to see the sea bass in a bouillon. Would have been better on a bed of Sandra’s or greens. The ducks starter and steak fantastic.

I met up with members of the family. We were given a window seat which had a great view. The staff were attentive but not so much so that we felt pressured for time. Everybody enjoyed their food and we all thought that the set lunch menu was value for money. The food was beautifully presented and tasted as as good as it looked. The waiting. Staff explained the menu well and the sommelier also explained the choices. This is a restaurant worth eating at if you’re in London for a special occasion. All things considered how expensive it is to eat anywhere in London this wasn’t the most expensive restaurant to eat in for a lunchtime treat!

Service was haphazard at times and no one offered to take our coats. The food was delightful and served beautifully. However we were not offered bread and it was difficult to get the attention of any servers.

The food was good but pricey. Also, I had asked repeatedly for a window table for our party of 8 only to be given a table at the entrance; that is really unacceptable when the restaurant requires a guarantee for the booking. Also, I found the staff to be uncoordinated. Not impressed.
