A beautiful place in the very centre of London. The menu is constantly updated and very seasonal. We were lucky to get some aggretti which is so rarely seen in this part of Europe. Highly recommended.

The food is amazing. Atmosphere is lovely and the staff very friendly and helpful. Even got a little cake with candle for my birthday. Sit at the bar to east so you can watch the cocktails being made.
