“Give the fish tasting menu a try”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Having read of this restaurant in a recently published book called "Where Chefs Eat," we dined here last night and had the fish tasting menu with two tulips of champagne to start, a bottle of Andre Jacquart blanc de blanc 2004, and two glasses of a sweet Loire white. The tasting started with a pea puree served with a mint snow cone like granita followed by salmon gravlax with another flavored snow cone type ice garnished with dried then soaked kelp, then two morsels of king crab in a lemon grass flavored sauce, then a broiled (I think) salted cod in a bed of tiny shrimp in barley and fennel "cous cous". A palate cleanser of egg white "zabaglione" and yoghurt followed ending with a dessert of vanilla ice cream and rhubarb. Very interesting, very labor intensive to plate, and a reasonable meal for a Michelin one star. The tab came to 361 pounds for two.

“Pay too much for what you get”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

This is for people that are specially interested.

We had an alright a'la carte meal with wine package.

It came to a total of over £300 for two. To pay £300 is alright if you get a spectacular meal. But I found it just alright.

++ Very friendly staff though.

“Ideal place for gourmands”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

This place in London is so marvelous. Uncommon atmosphere, great food and unforgettable taste. They skilfully combine tastes and as a result create amazing dishes. It really deserves its 1 Micheline star. Bravo!!! Definitely come back there again

“Taste Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

This is a restaurant to go to when you want the food to be a central part of the evening. Suggest you check it out on the website so that you know what to expect - but also don't be put off by the limited, and fish dominated, menu. Trust the restaurant and be prepared to be a bit adventurous. The food, the texture of the food, and the tastes are superb. You are encouraged to choose from two tasting menus, at about £70 per head, and I'd recommend you do that to get the most from the experience. The wine list is excellent and the staff knowledgable and helpful, and gave us some very good white wine matches. A treat!
