“STUNNING!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

Amazing experience. We planned to stop in whilst passing on a recommendation. Even if the restaurant had been average, the experience of the visit alone would have satisfied us. However, the restaurant experience was also spectacular. I had concerns about it being over pretentious and feeling patronised. No chance! Every single member of staff was the most polite and informative about what was on offer than in any restaurant we have ever visited across the globe. And there were plenty of them offering information on the wine, the food etc. despite so many staff, you didn't feel crowded or like they were encroaching on your private experience. They had that perfect back of approaching the table at the right time for the right purpose as in the tradition of service from the days of old! Food was incredible. No measly little pretentious portions and price was amazing. Around £50 for the two of us, starters, mains and wine. This is a must to visit if in the area

“Nice but overpriced!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

Our first visit after the renovation some years ago.The menu is small and so are the portions. Food and drinks are overpriced.
A Lot of "Schicki-Micki"! Not worth to go there one more.
