I booked a surprise dinner and theatre evening for my husband's birthday earlier this week. Although I visit the Mayflower Theatre regularly, we had never eaten in 'Ovation' before, so I wasn't sure what to expect.
The staff were friendly and welcoming, and although I hadn't specified it was a celebration, my husband mentioned it in passing. We had the set menu package, and I have to say the food was just amazing. We eat out frequently at various hotels and restaurants, including some very nice ones in London, but I have to say that this was on a par, if not better than some of the best we have visited.
The dishes were unusual and so well put together, and the desserts were also amazing. We both had different meals, but neither of us were disappointed, we could easily have been eating in a top London restaurant.
The staff were fab, and after dessert bought out an extra plate with more dessert and 'Happy Birthday' written on it in chocolate sauce. This was above and beyond what was expected, and a lovely touch. We were given two spoons, so we could share, and had the chance to try desserts we hadn't ordered.
The whole experience was wonderful, and I look forward to dining there in the future.
