Found the restaurant by chance on an impromptu evening out. An interesting menu, very tasty, well cooked food and good sized portions. Lovely atmosphere and charming staff. What more could you ask for! We will be returning.

This small place has charm, great food and class. It also has a garden area. Lunch here was a relaxed and unfussy. Just the right attitude. A must.

We ate here for a family meal, my daughter having been here happily several times. Six can eat at the table by the window which is great for people watching, although the door doesn't close properly so it's a little drafty. We were a little disappointed that they were still serving their December menu in January but it's nicely small... More

My boyfriend and I found this restaurant by chance after leaving one we originally booked as it was too noisy and busy with Xmas parties. We stumbled upon this restaurant and luckily they had one table spare and we were so pleased. The atmosphere was cosy and warm and the staff were really friendly and attentive. The food was excellent... More

The food was only average. The service is very bad: they put pressure on us to order as quickly as possible even though it was only 9.30pm, and we were a large table. They didn't have any bread left, although we only had one small basket for a table of 10. I didnt feel welcome. Would not recommend.

Booked this restaurant after reading reviews on TA, I was not disappointed. This is a small restaurant in the heart of Soho, we were made to feel very welcome and although the menu is limited all the food we had had been freshly cooked and was delicious!
