Ate the tasting menu before a gig at the RAH. The cod and amuse bushe were lovely but otherwise a little disappointing if I'm honest. Service brilliant, but quality of the food (especially the lamb) a bit below par and parts of the restaurant looking...More

I have been here a few times now. Honestly one of my favorite bars in London. Staff are great and the two guys who normally feature on the piano are outstanding. Such good fun can't reccomend this place enough. Enjoy. x

The food is consistently excellent, the wine list is superb and her staff are very knowledgable and friendly. The piano bar downstairs is a bonus. Would 100% recommend

Very attentive staff - extensive menu. Great food. Very impressive wine list. We dined here in April 2017 before the Music of Bond at The Royal Albert Hall. We will be back for future gastronomic highlights here.

We chose this restaurant for a celebratory night out and weren't disappointed. The heritage tomato starter with its basil sorbet and truffled burrata was an inspired take on the old staple of a caprese while the lobster ravioli was equally enjoyable -- and cooked perfectly...More

Dined in a fairly large group. There had been a mix up with the booking, complicated but probably the staff being a little too efficient. Staff reacted well and quickly sorted out a new table. Very friendly, professional service. Vegetarian food was lovely, although far...More

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
