My friend had told me about a Magical Mystery Treat and could not imagine that it was going to be this surprise! As we got in our coats and bags were stored away and we were escorted to our table with a glass of Champagne. As we sat down, a group of Professional Opera Singers accompanied by piano started singing... More

A really outstanding experience. 6 ladies and gentlemen who service you good food and who performance each 15 min an opera song. Passion, motivation, customer focused service of those gives a real unforgettable evening. As well the food is outstanding. We come back

This restaurant is tucked away but has so much to offer. We were welcomed and relieved of our coats as we stepped over the threshhold, served with a Kir Royale and sat down to make our choice from the menu. The atmosphere and warm intimacy of the room as the food and wine is served tends to embue the senses,... More

We had a fantastic night out here. My brother, sister and I took our Mum here for a birthday treat. It hadn't been personally recommended to me, so I was a little apprehensive, but I needn't have been. From start to finish it was an amazing experience. The singers were amazing and walked around the tables as they sung, so... More

We went for my wife's birthday, one of five that night actually, and every part of the experience was amazing. The location is right next to Hyde Park in a beautiful building; the service from the staff is world class; the menu is well designed; the food was really good and the singing was spectacularly good. I'm sure I heard... More

Never fails to disappoint me. It is fine dining restaurant with a special occasion feel to the place. Prices are very reasonable for what you are served. This is a restaurant perfect for many occasions where a more formal atmosphere is required. It would be hard not to open a bottle of wine with your meal here! Delicious food with... More
