Well I'm more known for my note taking and attention to detail in my reviews but I must admit I'm a little lost without a notebook on this trip. I can say form memory however that entering the restaurant might be a struggle for anyone unable to assault the set of stairs to get tot he restaurant floor but it's worth it if you can.
The view is only first floor but I did like looking down at the traffic a touch, not a huge restaurant so the tables are a bit tight but the decor is nice and tables well laid out and quite a sophisticated style.
We were seated and I would note the lack of bread on the table, although a minor issue it's worth a mention as some dislike not having some. I never asked but they may have brought some out if asked. I mainly note it because they had a nice selection on the menu which made our wait long while everyone decided what they wanted.
The waiting staff took our drinks orders and were polite and pleasant, drinks came out as requested no need to double check anything and asked all the relevant questions. they were quite ok with having two of our party come up to the bar t look and see what was there rather than use the menu and had no issues with putting the drink on there own bill.
Our food orders were taken shortly after and the staff were knowledgeable and polite as before. Asking all the right questions in the right places and moving round the table as needed rather than talking over people/distance. I would say it was a struggle going over the menu on the blackboard. I don't expect to have to get up out of my seat to see what I want to eat however the waitress was more than happy to tell you what was on it.
The food that came out was a bit of a surprise. Everything was about normal price for the area but the portions were something else. As you'll see from the photos.
Everything was great also, I had the squid myself which was cooked just right. We had no complaints form our party in terms of the food and I can recommend the garlic bread, huge bits of nice warm and slightly toasted bread that will easy do 2-4 people as a side.
We had 8 in our party and I believe we were around £100 with steaks and puddings all included as well as sides ect. We didn't try to go cheap on it and the price worked out better than expected.
Over all my only negatives is the lack of space to swing your cat and the blackboard. Really it;s more of a four and a half for me.
