It's become a favourite - a great degustation full of flavour, texture and complexity. Professional service and great value - even better is that we could take our own favourite wines. It was a spontaneous booking without much notice and yet the kitchen was still able to cope with Lynn's wheat and dairy allergies without any problem. Only negative is... More

We were really impressed with the food. Amazing effort into each dish. Exquisite. The food was beautiful to look at and tasted even better. This restaurant is a must. Service excellent, great knowledge of the wine list. Get yourselves down there.

My husband and I ate here for the 3rd time and it was great each time. We had the degustation menu and each dish was scrumptious and beautifully presented (except for one which was just good but not fantastic). We didn't opt for matching wines but the wine list had enough to choose from. The portions are not huge so... More

We had the 8 course degustation menu and each one was unique, some with a unique but mild Asian twist to it. The standout for me was the thin slices of trumpeter fish sashimi delicately embracing paper thin slices of radish - heavenly to taste with the ponzu sauce , and a work of art to behold. A lovely romantic... More

Came here for my birthday with my better half, enjoyed the degustation with a very nice bottle of wine. The food was interesting and very technical in the preparation, with the chefs doing different things with ingredients than normal. However whilst I did enjoy the food I was waiting for that one 'wow' dish which never came, and that was... More

We had the degustation menu with matching wine and booked for a special occasion dinner. We were not disapointed. Each course was delicious and beautifully presented matched with a world class wine. Food quality was outstanding and each course used innovative ingredients. A credit to the oscillate wildly team.

flavour explodes in your mouth, with some very technical and difficult dishes. Menu changes every day, only down side is it takes 4 hours to complete all courses. It is suited to wine diners.

I really like the idea of "just sit down and we will bring you nice food". No Menus is great, they simply ask what you don't/can't eat and away we go. The reason I gave it 4 out of 5 was because of the venue. Its small with an outhouse restroom that's on uneven ground and we sat next to... More

Was a little put off at first to be in such a tight space with tables so close but should not have worried - the acoustics were perfect. Each course was a surprised delight of delicious morsels. Cannot wait to go again. Had such a memorable time.

Wonderful in every way - service, food, quality, presentation. Slightly less innovative than say Sixpenny but no less enjoyable. No problems with Lynn's wheat and dairy allergies - she didn't miss out on anything. The wait teamis excellent - very personable, professional with a great knowledge of all the dishes. Food full of flavour and texture. The only downside is... More
