I was looking forward to eating here but it was not what I hoped it would be.
Firstly, there is no indication on the web-site or menu that it is a small plates concept, which I don't think it really is anyway. The 'small plates' came just as a conventional meal would have: 2 'starters' and 2 'mains' but on such big plates that it made sharing really awkward. Serving the plates like this just emphasized the fact that you are paying high end prices for half-plates of food that doesn't add up to a meal.
The food itself tasted good but it seemed like it would be impossible to eat a meal at this restaurant as each dish was so rich and 'designed' that it was almost too much. I don't understand why there wouldn't be side dishes available to round out the meal - veggies and/or some carbs. As it is the only side available is bread, which didn't make it to the table even though we ordered it and asked about it later. Since the dishes just appear at random intervals it was difficult to tell if the bread was forgotten or still to come (it was forgotten). Normally I don't worry about bread but as this was the only accompaniment to the meat it was sorely needed to sop up the greasy flavours.
Unfortunately the outcome was that I left the restaurant as hungry as I was when I got there. I guess I could of ordered more but didn't want to throw good money after bad. Even when the server offered us some Calvados by way of apology for the bread it was undrinkable and stayed on the table - too little too late.
