We ended up eating here twice, it was great! The menu is short but tasty, not too expensive, and not too expensive. You need to make sure to book in advance as it has limited tables and limited sittings.

This is a small contemporary restaurant with an upstairs and downstairs. The evening we went there was a sign in the window stating that it was fully booked. Staff were pleasant but sadly totally inattentive! We waited for over 15 minutes before one came over to our table and that was only because we managed to catch an eye. So... More

I can only say that the meal we had was top class. I can only say the Curry Plate dessert was outstanding. Such an unusual flavour combanisation worked so well. Thoroughly recommended. The service staff were very confident and knowledgeable. Well done.!

We were so surprised at the delicious food on offer here; clearly a lot of effort and thought had gone into the menu and the service that we received was just as good. I can honestly say that I haven't had better food in some of he top restaurants in London! Well done to Ben and his team! Cooked to... More

We had such a lovely evening here. We booked months ago having read excellent reviews. We were not disappointed. The food was wonderful and wines to match each dish were lovely. Fish tacos to start and then plaice (catch of the day). The curry plate dessert was brilliant. Service fantastic, relaxed and unpretentious. We had such a good evening.

Excellent food but booking a table is essential as the owners concentrate on quality not volume. Would highly recommend.

Went for lunch just before visiting St Michael's Mount. It was an unexpected treat - best meal I've had in a long time. Pudding (sweet curry) was a highlight.

The meal was outstanding. The front of house staff were very knowledgeable regarding the ingredients of each course together with wine selection. Would definitely recommend and look forward to visiting again.

I had been so looking forward to eating here. The food is obviously excellent and that is what you go for after all .... BUT having reserved weeks ahead to ensure a table on a sunny evening in July, despite the thought of a delicious dinner, I was not going to enjoy it in a low ceilinged upstairs room next... More

If you booked the restaurant for the view anfd not the food then you booked the wrong place all our tables are well spaced & comfortable as many have stated before by many people before you. We have just 12 tables we don't turn them it's yours for the night it is hard enough to make a living out of... More
