Wonderful restaurant on cute corner in Covent Garden. Reasonably priced pre-theatre menu. Highly recommend the goat cheese salad and burrata salad. Marinated black cod main course was delicious with lovely sauteed vegetables and salad below. Friendly staff and reasonably priced wines. Best in Covent Garden.
