Excellent museum complemented by a stylish large restaurant. I has a selection of grilled lamb meat including juicy, perfectly grilled (medium-rare) cutlets and super tasty lamb sausages. The accompanying grilled vegetables were outstanding.

Museum cafes are often good, but Provenance goes one better, offering quality choices from sushi to tandoori. The food is freshly prepared, often while you wait, and the setting, especially the tables in the atrium, are lovely. Do look around the various food preparation areas...More
