“Aerage”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Thi was is a good restaurent, serving avarage food. I had the chiken patai and bread for starters and can tell you it was terrible as the volumes were so small and one can only describe as baby food. When we recieved our food the plates were cold and so was the food.. really a sad experince.

“Please note there are two of these on TripAdvisor”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

So this place has nearly a mythical following. You here how this restaurant is so old school it is still in hidden in a residential building and does not even have a website.

The Menu is £43 per person for 3 courses and there is no other options. It is worth noting that heavy weight items do often have a supplement of up to £5.

The place is just as you read about, stepping into a time warp. You expect them to serve Duck l'orange the whole gig is very 1970's chique and is absolutely jam packed every night.

Every table is given thin crust bread and a salad plate and blue cheese dip as you sit down.

Starters we had Smoked Salmon and Asparagus on a plate, and also the Seafood crepes with crab sauce. Very good quality but a bit on the bland side.

Main course were Veal Escalope with a delicious mushroom sauce, and secondly the sea bass fillets with lobster sauce. Both needed salt which was very surprising. I also asked for some Tabasco after a few bites. Dishes are served with your choice of vegetables.

Deserts were creme brullee which was just ok and the Tiramisu which was actually very good.

Overall the place is an experience, I dont think I would go running back soon because I found the food a little bit on the bland side for french food (Galvin down the road has no such blandness problem) I also thought they should allow people to order a la carte and put up a website so everyone knows what they are getting into.

Service was excellent.

Well hidden but a great find. Extensive choice and generous portions well cooked, with
wonderfully professional waiters, what more could you ask for. Well done and heres to your next 25 years.

“Nothing beats this restaurant”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Thsi is by far the best restaurant I have ever been to. There is such attention to detail from entering the block of flats where the restaurant is on the ground floor

Drinks at the bar were very generous size & there were bowls of nuts to nosh on - however be warned - don't eat too many
On the table there is the most amazing Melba toast & curled butter - together with crudites & a dip
The menu is very extensive & then the waiter will tell you of the many specials they have. Portions are large & you are able to choose any vegetable to go with the meal - creamed spinach & cauliflower cheese are fantastic
Neil - the desert waiter is a legend in his own right & will tempt you with the delights of the house - he will make sure you have what you want
We were celebrating a birthday & they bring out a birthday cake - which was just the nicest cake I have eaten

All in all - a wonderful treat for a celebration
