This is first class restaurant in both menu and service. We celebrate birthdays and anniversaries there AND love to go there for an occasional treat. The staff always remember us and spoil us on a special occasion, but any time they cannot be faulted for...their first class attention to detail. The food is fabulous - quality ingredients and beautifully prepared. Excellent wine selection, at every price point too.More
Ideal choice for a formal night out.
It has wonderful, professional staff who combine their expertise with warm friendliness.
This is our experience over the many years we dined there after finding it by accident.
Lunch is equally inviting.
Having written a glowing review six months ago, we were so disappointed. The food was rather bland after first eating with our eyes. There is truly art on a plate but it didn’t live up to our expectations. I had the crème brûlée but it...hadn’t been cooked in a water bath as it is meant to be, rather just a lot of gelatine for the setting agent.
The service was good, not as impeccable as the last time. My husband had to pour our wine a few times which in the grand scheme of things wasn’t disastrous but when you are paying a lot of money, it isn’t a cheap restaurant, should not happen.
I’m not sure we’ll be back which is a shame.More
The food here is creative, tasty and beautifully presented the pork cheek and octopus was a particular triumph. Staff were excellent , warm ,knowledgeable and attentive though not overly so. The room has a Mediterranean feel with copies paintings by renowned artists , tables were...comfortable and well spaced. The good sized and well priced wine list had mostly Portuguese wines with some good options. Overall a very enjoyable wedding anniversary dinner , well worth a visit.More
Had another amazing birthday meal here.
The food, wine and service are outstanding.
The staff are extremely attentive - it is so nice to see the same team -most have been there for many years - which speaks volumes.
Looking forward to our return very...soon.
Thank you again.More
Amazing place serving in-cre-di-bly good food. We went there for a birthday dinner and it definitely met (and exceeded!) our expectations. Special note for the time in paradise we had while tasting their beef tartare gorgonzola and truffles. The outside terrace is super nice and...the staff elegant and caring. We're highly recommending.More
