Delicious mixed platters. Loved the Tapinade and the grissini but the winner were the haddock balls on a bed of black seaweed leaves

My second visit. I love the setting of The Terrace and its buzzy atmosphere. The food was superb; I especially love this way of eating. All the dishes were good but especially the Burrata, the crispy mussels and the duck. The service was efficient and friendly - perfect for between the two parts of the play.

Interesting menu but many items poorly cooked. Ravioli too tough to chew on, greens and gizzards both over cooked, supposed crepe butter with no discernible mushroom taste. Zucchini fritters were pleasant.

Lovey sitting on the terrace in the early evening. Good service, with nothing too much trouble. Enjoyed the food. We took advice on how much to order. All dishes good taste and fun to look at. Presentation interesting. Overall a satisfying experience.
