This review is somewhat difficult to write and it must be taken in the context of how much the dinner costs at 15. With the price and fame of this restaurant I would expect everything to be absolutely perfect and unfortunately it was not.
We decided to go with the seven course tasting menu for £80 a head. We did not go with the seven glasses of wine for £60 a head but rather asked the sommelier for his advice and ended up with a very nice bottle of Chianti for £55
As you would expect the food was very good. The staff were excellent and very helpful.
The imperfections were slightly irritating but did not detract from the overall enjoyment. Problem points were unclean cutlery at the start of the mail, minor flooding around a urinal and lifting of the tiles at about eyelevel over the urinal.
The main issue, and I find it difficult to say this as I really like a lot of food, was that the portions were too big which meant once we got to the fifth course which could not go on. I'm pleased to say that the manager was very good about this and did take a significant amount of money off the bill to reflect the fact we did not have pudding or cheese.
My advice would be perhaps stay away from the tasting menu and choose from the standard one or make sure you are very hungry before you go!
