This restaurant has without a doubt the best service of any place I have eaten at (and that includes a couple of Michelin starred places) - polite, discreet, attentive but not invasive. The wine list contains a good selection at reasonable prices and the decor and surroundings are grand and fitting of the situation. The food was for me exceptional, however my wife who is a little more fussy struggled to find things she really wanted on a menu filled with game and delicacies such as foie gras and things such as oxtail. Her loss, but a warning to the less open minded! Having chosen food it was also worth noting that then betroot tarte tatin that accompanied her main course was a little over powering. All these things are of course trifles...of which there were none on the dessert menu which totally outclassed the savoury courses in being truly outstanding and without fault. They were also so beautiful I should have photographed them but lack of any camera prevented this from happening.
All in all a great night.
