“Lobster, check. Steak, check.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

Lobster and steak place so only choices are those or surf and turf which is a full steak and half lobster. Comes with unlimited chips and a really nice salad.

Add in a bottle of nice wine and finish with the chefs special desert (3 mini deserts of whatever he fancies this week). Deserts were amazing and worth choosing over cheese or similar standard ones.

Can't really go wrong with this but it was a bit pricy compared to other places I've had similar so only a 4.

Quite a posh environment too bit that's a choice you make, not a downside. Top service.

Reservation required as very busy

“Successful formula”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

We last came here three years ago when the restaurant had no name. Then it served only steak and lobster; now "Red" has added caviar to its menu. We couldn't get in first attempt but on an off-chance, when passing, managed to get an early sitting. So book well in advance. The room on a street corner looks attractive with good table linen and friendly staff and was the perfect place to be on a cold, wet January night. We had a half lobster each to start followed by very good steak with fries and salad (the salad was just a garnish and could be more exciting). The wines by the glass were surprisingly good and reasonably priced. Including water, a couple of aperitifs, wine, coffee and armagnac (it was a celebration) we only managed to rack up €55 each. The formula is a simple one but Red does it extremely well.

“Excellent food & ambiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

On a business trip last June, one of my colleagues recommended this restaurant. We were not disappointed. The food, the service, the setting were all wonderful plus it was really not that expensive for what you get. I'd go back there anytime and keep this place in my restaurants contact list for future visits.

“great steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

Luckily I pre-booked this restaurant after reading good reviews, which just as well as very small, but cosy and food fantastic (they only serve steak and lobster) had bit of both, not too badly priced.
Would recommend
