Our party of four all had the set taster ("degustion" ) menu which has six courses listed on the menu but on our night (like another reviewer) also had 3 chefs surprises or "amuses" in addition. The dishes were all very well presented and excellently cooked with great flavours. All the courses were based on traditional Mexican dishes but each was given a twist (or three!) to make it special. One of our party was Mexican and he was able to identify for us what each course was traditionally based on. As we would expect for a taster menu, each individual course was a small portion but there was also a roll basket with very good home made rolls and excellent home made relish and black butter all of which were regularly replenished until we got to the desert courses. We were all delighted with the quantity, quality, presentation and flavours of our meals.
Our head waiter was excellent and we enjoyed excellent service throughout. Like other reviewers we observed both the owner and the head chef coming out to keep an eye on things and to chat to customers, which is always a good sign.
The frontage to the restaurant is not the most inspiring but the inside is bright and cheerful but not fussy. We were on the 'terrace' which is more accurately a large patio out the back with a retractable cover. Do not expect a view!
We booked for 7pm (the restaurant opens much early than this) and when we arrived a few minutes early were (very politely asked if we could come back at 7 because they were not ready for us yet. The restaurant does not appear to have a separate area to wait in before going to your table. When we came back we noticed another couple waiting on the bench outside, presumably also early. So when you book, check when they expect you to arrive!
With a moderate amount of wine and a tip do not expect much change from £60 a head but for that we got a special meal in very comfortable surroundings that we will remember with great satisfaction.
