I'd always thought Bambini Trust was a solid, if slightly underwhelming, bet. Until last Friday. Our table for four was behind another packed with drunken yobs. The duck was cold and the chocolate cake we'd had two or three times was not only unrecognisable - they'd changed the recipe apparently - but dry and/or stale. Having given them the benefit... More

If ever a restaurant felt more Left Bank,its certainly this one. Girth'd by Hyde park greenery in front, and nestled next to the Great Synagogue,this eatery is tucked inside a grand, beautiful sandstone building. Make no mistake,it serves coffee or a lovely drop of vino,but its not a cafe. This is quality, street fine dining. Step past the columns into... More

I first used this bar and restaurant a few years ago when I think it had first opened or reopened. It is an ideal venue when visiting the festival in Hyde Park. I dropped in for a drink and to make a booking for dinner with some friends later in the week. Are they anti the single woman? I was... More

We met the CEO/manager/boss on a Friday, and he could not have been more friendly, really lovely, as he booked us in for Monday morning breakfast. They are not open on weekends, but even so we managed to avoid the Sheraton (next door) breakfast. There is a French barman in their other section who really really knows his stuff. So... More

Great food, great service, great staff. Definitely recommend, although we had a large group and had to be on two tables and in a not in an area very conducive to this working well. Not sure if they have other options but might be better to look elsewhere for groups of more than 6-8. We did I believe had a... More
