The drinks in the wonderful Bar before the Meal was lovely- a very ambient room to have a quiet drink. The 5 course Degustation Meal was delicious, & the presentation & range of dishes was lovely! The experience was elegant, relaxing, and very enjoyable! We will return!

Took some business clients to this restaurant as it was only a short stroll from my hotel at Four Seasons. First time visitor but since the reviews were mainly excellent was keen to try it. We didn't have a booking being a Wednesday night and this wasn't a problem as we were seated straight away. This is somewhat of a... More

Had the degustation menu here which was quite superb, with great flavours and exquisite presentation. The waiting staff were most attentive and the chef coped with one of the party being vegetarian and one having an allergy to garlic. Because there was a mix up with the main dish containing garlic, the chef sent three tasting plates of dessert in... More

Our last visit to this restaurant was in 2007 and things have changed since then. The European classical ambience was still there, but the furniture and curtains look a bit tired and in need of some touch ups. In fact, the Langham hotel lobby also gave the same impression. Waiters and waitresses all tried their best to be helpful, even... More

Amazing (!!!) food, service a little slow (which they compensated for by providing dessert unasked), sensational wine, lovely atmosphere.

Overall this restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and the food is quite good. I have eaten at nicer and better restaurants, but I thought the degustation menu we had was good value for the quality of the food served. Staff were friendly and attentive - I would return. best part is the fantastic cocktails!
