“Superb Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

Came to The Hill yesterday with my partner and daughter after looking up the reviews on Trip Advisor. All three of us were delighted with the food and the ambience of this restaurant and so glad that we ignored the last two reviews. The King Scallops, Iberico Ham, the Veal with Lemon Sauce, the duck and selection of vegetables were extremely well cooked and beautifully presented. The desserts were delicious and the coffee very good.

The waitress who was from Peru was delightful and efficient - she recommended that we should try the Pisco Sour a Peruvian cocktail which neither my partner and I had heard of and we both thoroughly enjoyed.

We would certainly recommend this restaurant to our friends for the ambience, the service and the food and look forward to returning very soon.

We had a wonderful relaxed lunch time experience with low level background music so we could enjoy our conversation. Also loved the original paintings apparently painted by the owners father.

“RATHER DISAPPOINTED”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

I visited this restaurant last San Valantine´s Day with my parnet, looking foward to enjoy a magnificant dinner according to the reviews.
However, our meal was very disappointing. From the moment we arrived, the service we had was terrible. The waitress was rude and she was really slow in bringing us our food and drinks. The wine glasses were dirty and we had to ask for them to be replaced twice before clean ones were brought to us. The cutlery also looked as if it had not been washed properly because it had marks on it.
My parner´s starter was brought to the table 10 minutes after mine arrived. I had to ask the waitress three times about the delay, which was very embarrassing.

In resume, it isn´t the best choice in Greenwhich.

“Big Disappointment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

A friend recommended this place saying all good things about it so we decided to finally try it. Booked a table, went there quite hungry, ordered drinks and food straight away and here we are. After 30 min waiting for our starters which wasn't too complicated, squid and scallops, ask for it and been told that it will arrive in few min. Not very happy about it we waited and after another 10min our order been taken to the other table!!!! So we obviously stood up and left as it was no more patience left. Very frustrating, especially then you are hungry.

“Good for Greenwich”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

Full of atmosphere, conversation and fantastic live music, our dinner for two was a nice insight to life in this beautiful area. The food was beautifully prepared and there was a reasonable choice, although I feel it was a little over-priced for the quality.

Greenwich isn't blessed with many nice restaurants (most are catering for tourists) but this is tucked away in a more residential setting, and it shows with the type of visitor and the improved standard. However, I still think the offering just up on the heath is on another level to this.

“Very good neighbourhood restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

3 of us had a late lunch (4pm) prior to 02 concert - really excellent and fairly priced. The scallop starter was scrumptious as was the seafood linguine. My husband had the 300gm Argentinian fillet steak which he thought superb. The wine is reasonably priced too. Nice friendly staff. Would highly recommend.
