“5 Stars all the way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

Really can't rate this restaurant highly enough. The staff are so friendly and welcoming - this is a very nice restaurant and yet it feels relaxed. The service can not be faulted in any way. The food is actually amazing, worthy of a michelin star in my opinion. Very complicated, difficult to produce dishes put together perfectly. The selection of wines is excellent and the staff are very knowledgeable and able to recommend a glass to suit each course perfectly. (apparently one of the waiters there actually enters competitions in wine tasting and really does know his stuff). They have a lovely outdoor area too for summer dinning al fresco. I think its excellent value for money. I Really love this place.

“Great for couples, great for business, great for families, amazing for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

Have eaten here several times, the food is generally excellent, small portions of rich produce that don't leave you wanting more but wishing that you could eat more. The dishes are of Mediterranean style but do have a generous helping of other cultures and styles mixed in to give a good variety of flavours. Service is very attentive and professional, and they've coped with large groups, romantic evenings and an intrigued two year old with equal levels of quality.

Overall, I'm continually amazed that we can get a table with no reservations as often as we can, particularly with the lunch prices the way they are.

“Good location, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

This is a charming restaurant just by the bridge. We were fortunate to have a window table in the first floor restaurant overlooking the river.
Lunch is still £12 for two courses and £16 for three with a choice of two or three items at each course. Good value we thought. A la carte and evenings are rather more expensive. We enjoyed our lunch and, as previously noted, the service is very professional. For lunchtime we had a lager, fortunate because the wines looked a bit pricey.
The only disappointment was the caffeteria of coffee (£3 per head). We had anticipated a really good Italian one but our's was a bit mediocre.

“Fine food, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

Very attractive setting, for coffee, lunch or evening meal. Attentive service- formal, but not too formal. Not cheap, but good quality food (as opposed to huge portions). Their lunch deals are very good.

“A fabulous restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

Yet another fabulous family Birthday celebratory meal - thank you! We first came for Sunday lunch when the restaurant first opened in 2011 for my daughter's 18th & have been back for various celebrations every year since. The food & service are unbelievable, as is the attention to detail. The staff are a credit to the restaurant. The understated elegance of this restaurant make for a memorable, enjoyable relaxed eating experience. We'll be back!
