A great place for a special occasion. The prices mean this is a special indulgence sort of restaurant. Great variety of appetizers and for me it’s like enjoying tapas. Filling without getting overstuffed. Their entrees are good too (duck breast) but I like enjoying a...More

This place does - arguably - the best food in London. Service is impeccable - friendly, discreet when required and always attentive - and the food does not disappoint. For a classy meal in London it’s one of the top addresses. Comes highly recommended.

You can not go wrong going for dinner here. It is totally worth the slightly higher price tag. The food is to die for and the service is excellent! It was a great experience!
