We were given a voucher by my son, and decided to use. We took our 8 year old daughter, and although no children's menu, which you shouldn't expect in this type of restaurant. She was treated wonderfully by the staff, I am sure her behavior helped. At her age very easy to be put off this style of dining for... More

The service was impeccable and every mouthful was a delight. We had some emailed communication with the restaurant to make our booking and advise of some dietary requirements as we had just found out I was expecting. The contact before our arrival was prompt, professional and reassuring. On arrival we were led over to the bar area and drinks orders... More

Maybe we had an off day or it was because we chose the tasting menu. The food wasn't as nice as we have had in the past. We will return but the normal menu is probably the way to go.

Wow, these guys know their stuff. The food and service were amazing - some real treats for the taste buds. The atmosphere is a little quiet and subdued, but in my experience these kinds of restaurants prefer to let their food do the talking. Not cheap but worth it for a treat or special occasion.

We ordered the taster menu which your whole table has to choose to get this. I thought that it was excellent value for money and the food was beautifully presented and tasted amazing! The portions were generous and we were all full by the end. The service was brilliant and there was a wide selection of wines and drinks. This... More

Such a great place for a special occasion. Celebrated a birthday here in October and we were well looked after and food second to none I hope I'll come back soon but it'd have to be for a special occasion I think.

Short and sweet - Fantastic food, attentive service! Maybe not the best looking venue, but the meal was definitely up there with some of the best. An unexpected gem of a find in Portsmouth
