My husband surprised me with a weekend in London, a show and a meal at Le Gavroche which was on both our bucket lists. It is expensive and something that most of us don't get to do very often but what an experience. From the minute we stepped inside the (full) restaurant, we were made to feel like the only customers there and nothing was too much trouble. The waiter was so helpful with choosing our dishes and spoke very passionately about my chosen starter of bone marrow, and even said if I did not enjoy it, he would change it. My husband saw the waiter discreetly walk by to make sure I was enjoying it and this made me feel very special and the dish was to die for! They matched the wines perfectly to the dishes and it was nice that you could have any wine by the glass, which saved my husband a heart attack, seeing the price of the bottles of wine!! Also my menu had no prices on but my husbands did which was a lovely touch. We did think we might feel out of place in such a high class establishment but I can honestly say it was like coming home after a long time away and getting a fantastic welcome. Will definitely be back for another special occasion.
