Had lunch today. Set menu excellent value, but strong choice with all courses and high quality cooking. Service really good, but friendly without stiffness common in higher-end places.

We had our best and most memorable dinner of 2016 in this fantastic restaurant. The food selection is straight forward in that the choice is limited but every mouthful was memorable and truly sensational. They offer a five course (I think) menu for 70 Euro - pricey for sure but really worth it for a special occasion as you will... More

Have eaten here many times. Fantastic spot if you're attending the Gate theatre as just beside it. Check out the early bird menu. Stunning food, large selection of wines & cocktails in a lovely setting. Perfect for meeting friends or for a couples special occasion too.

Service was perfect food outstanding. The only thing I would say we felt we were over dressed . No Dress code what so ever . Not like the last few restaurants in Paris where Gentlemen had to ware a jacket . It's nice to have an excuse to dress up

I have been to this restaurant several times a year for the past twenty years and not once have I been disappointed. The standard of excellence is ever present and the imagination that goes into the food is always changing. From the most welcoming of arrivals to end of meal, it is always a delight to experience Chapter One.
