My friend and I visited this place last month Quick version is that the quality of the dishes oscillated wildly between excellent to bizarre and unappetizing pairings. We did the wine pairing with the degustation. A few reviews have mentioned the odd scampi dish. The...More

There were a few reasons to celebrate here last week including a few birthdays, including our hosts. I rang the restaurant earlier on as one of the guests can be fussy with food and they were great. The degustation is amazing and really interesting wine...More

From the moment our waiter opened his mouth, the night was ruined! What a liability he is to the chef and the reputation of this restaurant. Food was good, not amazing, and portions were too small. We all left hungry which is not what we...More

The name of the restaurant coupled with the two hats perhaps leads to a convincing expectation of whats to come. The ambiance was mellow, 'trying to be romantic'. Decor was simple & not much to appreciate. We were led upstairs where it seemed even cosier....More
