We went for lunch to celebrate my husband's birthday, taking three adults and a four year old with us, so six in total. The five adults had the a la carte menu and they did a special meal for the little one. The wine waiter advised us on champagne and he was spot on, and we also had two bottles of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. The total bill came to £539, so judge for yourself whether you think that was expensive. We though it was well worth it, because we could not have bettered the experience; everything from the valet parking on arrival to the umbrellas held for us as we left was perfect. The food is exquisite and immaculately presented. The use of dry ice and quirky equipment kept the youngest member entertained (and the adults too) and she loved her spag blog - served in what she called "a witch's hat". The flavours are superb and the meals brilliantly balanced. We have eaten here before, but this was extra special and everyone loved it. The staff are discretely attentive. For example, little one commented that there was juice in the bottom of her bowl, and in the blink of an eye a spoon appeared for her. We will go again.... soon.
