There is no doubting the quality of the food and service here. Very professional. The cocktails are outstanding, not amateur attempt. This is not the cheapest place by any means, but all things considered, it is good value. We were lucky enough to be seated in an alcove which made it a far more intimate experience. I would suggest that... More

Had the whole restaurant to ourselves! Went on a Sunday, 9th Oct. Service was great, atmosphere was cosy, chilling music, sat in a booth. I had ox cheek to start and my husband had the mackerel. I had beetroot trout for my main course, it had garlic hollandaise sauce, chorizo and pea shoots, it was pink fish and lovely! My... More

2nd visit and summarised as follows, very limited small menu, great wines, tiny portions, attentive staff but we were the only table (speaks for itself!) well presented food but just not enough of it, had to order chips to fill us up! Went for a curry a few hours later as most of our group were still hungry

As part of Maiyango'd "Friday in Love" deal, we stayed at the hotel with dinner and breakfast included. Dinner was very nice, with some very creative, tasty and original starters, main courses and deserts. The cocktails too were memorable. A cherry-on-top was breakfast - for which I had a breakfast burrito and fresh fruit smoothie. Recommended, and very reasonable prices.

Dinner here mid week Started at the bar with G&Ts, a bit disappointing that they'd run out of 2 of the gins we wanted, and fever tree tonic! Restaurant very quiet but it was a Tuesday night (and therefore a bit surprised when it was supposedly a challenge to fit us in at 8). Options were 2 tasting menus or... More

We quite liked the quirky eclectic decor and were prepared for a great meal. The wines we had were lovely, especially the recommended Italian Passionemento, which we have never tried before and which was absolutely gorgeous. The complimentary bread (single slice) was served with a richly tasting olive oil and went together beautifully. We had to ask for another slice,... More

Colleagues and I came for dinner, and I am really sorry we did. The restaurant had a large party and the kitchen was probably overwhelmed. We should have been informed of the extensive delays before we were seated. We waited one hour for our food and were hot, crabby, and ravenous by the time it arrived. I had the scallops,... More

My wife and I visited Maiyango on 14/09/2016 for her birthday meal. The important stuff - The food and service were great. Missed out on 5th star as the restaurant was uncomfortably hot and there was some form of leak above our booth, the leak didn't matter to us as there was plenty of space for us to move away... More
