I'm afraid I'm going to be boring and add another glowing review to MGJ. We went last night and had a great experience. I expect most people realise that there is no menu as such, so that each course, I think there was 7 or 8, is a surprise. (However I did receive a phone call at home before we went asking if any of the party had any special dietary requirements - a nice touch). Because of this I, and the other 3 people in our party, ended up eating dishes that we would never had tried. One of the highlights for me was the rabbit kidneys with chorizo on bruschetta - it was simply sublime; melt in the mouth stuff. The other highlight for me was the pigeon breast - it was beautifully cooked, just pink in the middle and so tender. The dessert, which was a plate with 5 or 6 different desserts on it, was another highlight.
I would also echo some of the earlier comments about the waiting staff; the young French lady who served us gave excellent descriptions of what we were eating but wasn't pompous about it in any way, and she had a lovely sense of humour. We were never rushed and the food arrived at exactly the right pace. The cost was £45 per head which for this quality of food is just right. The restaurant is small with 5 or 6 tables, but there were enough people there to make a good atmosphere. I was also amazed to see the chef, who I assume was Gordon Jones, doing the washing up! No Big Time Chef airs and graces there. Thoroughly recommended.
