    We took advantage of the Bookatable offer (two courses £29.50 or three courses £34 with a bellini and truffles) which was good value. Otherwise lunch would have been very expensive. The wine list is extortionate, with the cheapest glass of red wine priced at £11. The first two courses were excellent (lovely ingredients, well cooked and nicely presented) but we were very disappointed with our dessert. We ordered rhubarb tart which was almost entirely "tart" with no rhubarb besides two tiny bits on the side. Really bland. Service was friendly and efficient and we liked the ambience. Overall we enjoyed the occasion but I am not sure I would return.

    I have now been here twice and like the feeling of the restaurant. On both occasions I have stuck to the fixed price menu and it is always good. I particularly enjoy the fish dishes. Service is good but not intrusive, which is important.

    Great service. Staff were attentive. The food & service was not rushed. Met with a girlfriend & we chose the offer which included a Bellini on arrival. Great food & lively atmosphere. Would recommend it

    Had a lovely Sunday lunch with my niece going to university here she loved it I was in Petersham in Richmond and this is my first meal in Covent Garden Thoroughly enjoyable Lovely food and atmosphere, though less wonderful than sitting in the garden Promised to take her to Richmond next time!

    Booked this as a treat for my Wife's birthday and it exceeded expectations in terms of the food and especially the service. Although I did not make any arrangements with the restaurant they were very attentive and when they noticed she was opening birthday cards Thomas brought out a special dessert with a candle for her birthday. It is his attention to the customers and very pleasant interaction that means this will be a regular haunt for special occasions, I have already recommended this restaurant to a number of family and friends.
