What can I say that hasn't already been raved about? It's a feast of tasty theatre presented by waiting staff who are in character from start to finish. You eat scrumptious concoctions that thrill the eye and surprise the palate. It's impossible to over-eat. The balance is just right. You just enjoy the relaxed ambience and have fun along with...

4 friends and tons of expectation. We were so happy that a dream was supposed to become reality. The experience started before we enter it was like magic. The food was outstanding as well the service. Expensive but worthy every penny . Highlights for the white chocolate and caviar, lamb, grapes. Thanks to all the stuff for such an amazing... More

It's an experience one ought to have if one can afford it. Though go for the journey of story-telling rather than the taste of the food. It's not that the food is bad but the story about it is almost always better than the taste.

Everything was an experience, from the time you walked in to the time you leave. Food exciting and innovative. Expensive but who cares, worth it. Payment up front for food and you pay for wine on the night.

We enjoyed it but not sure I'd want to go again. Expectations are set sky high by the price and reputation. (Our bill for 4 people, the 'cheapest' wine flight and tasting menu was just under £2000.) I've seen Heston's stuff on TV so I was expecting the surprises, liquid nitrogen, dry ice, etc. There's very little in the way... More

When you visit a top class restaurant you don't just expect high quality food but an experience to go with it. This place takes both of those elements to a new level that I never though was possible. The title of this review is 'wow' because that is exactly what you say on a continual basis during your dining experience.... More

Right after we went in the restaurant, we were surprised with a lot of things. We were first given a map a.k.a the menu and they also gave me a magnifying glass to look over each dish that was going to be served, every moment that i was there was full of mystery and thrill. Each dish that came out... More

No other words than amazing, it may cost a bit to attend but it was worth every penny in mine and my partners eyes. It was everything you would expect from a restaurant of this calibre. I would reccomend anyone going if they have the opportunity because it is an experience not to be missed in your life time.
