Incredible service from the head waiter, amazing food- porter house and sirloin, with a South African Shiraz.

    I took my boyfriend here for his birthday, it’s a nice restaurant tucked away near the river. It’s quite small but made it more intimate with a nice atmosphere (gentle hum of conversations flowing). The waiting staff are all attentive, they didn’t rush orders or taking plates. We had the shared Camembert to start was delicious (we asked for more bread), and we then had the shared chateau briand steak, with chips and peppercorn sauce. This was delicious, very good portion sizes. We have had this elsewhere but you definitely get more for your money here! Would highly recommend and I am sure we will be back!

    I went for a Valentine's dinner. The experience was super. The waiter was very attentive and the food was out if this world. It is expensive but worth it.

    Unfortunately when we arrive, our table wasn’t ready. Upstairs it’s quite cold and I had to wear my jacket all the time. The prawn were almost raw and without taste.
    Regarding the meat I can say that was the “best” part of the dinner though it wasn’t very good. Mashed potatoes too salty and looks prepared with powder instead with fresh potatoes.
    At the end we decided to try one tiramisù to share but unfortunately also that one wasn’t good.
    So, meat not outstanding and overall I didn’t like the experience.

    Food was alright, taste and texture was good, its difficult to enjoy a meal when the room is so noisy you cant hear your glass' *clink* in cheers moment.
    Prices were okay, the cheese starter was too runny for what its supposed to be and the bread was raw, some toasting would go a long way... "mac'n'cheese" was okay, very tasty pasta and cheese top, however the cheese base was overly runny and lacked a cheese taste, as if it was just milk. Potato wedges were nice, but too big pieces

    The resturants layout is annoying, you walk into a nice entrance then have to figure a way to the dining area, its up the stairs. Bathrooms, mens contain just a urinal attached way too high on the wall, shorter people will struggle and the sink is too small. No paper towels to dry your hands only an "old man breathing" air dryer. And it was all gross.

    Seating area is cramped, walking through, my butt did hit a few unexpected guests all the while presenting my crotch to others.
    Cocktails were okay, be weary of the stupid cardboard straws youre supposed to drink from... not smart.

    Parking is non-existant unless you arrive after 8pm, residential parking restrictions are lifted and street parking is available.

    Access to the resturant itself is rather a maze also as the entrance is hidden in an alleyway.
    Service is excellent, staff are friendly and catering
    I'd say the place could be good if they refined some items, until then, dont go.

    Hi we went to this restaurant as part of our early Valentines day celebration. I booked the restaurant for its good reviews and great pictures. I ordered the 50£ something worth steak for me and my partner but the steak was chewy and the medium rare seemed more rare. Admittedly next time i should just give it back to be replaced or get more cooked. However it mag be the meat and not the cooking that made it chewy.
