“Fab all round! Not to be missed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

We visited here as part of a voucher scheme that included a cocktail on arrival, 3 courses, petit fours and cheese board finishing off with tea or coffee. I forgot to mention the array of lovely breads too. The service we experienced was first class. No way were we made to feel that we were just the voucher guests. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Couldn't stop murmuring "mmm .... " virtually the whole evening! The four of us thoroughly enjoyed our evening, it was fantastic. Would return here voucher or no voucher!

“WOW! amazing - again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

This is the second time we have eaten here and we were remembered by the staff! This is now my favourite restaurant - ever. The staff are brilliant and thanks to Lucca and Nora for making our evening such a wonderful one. The food was beautiful to look at, of course your first taste is always with your eyes! Then oh my - such beautiful aromas and flavours. The chef even prepared a dessert that met with my dietary needs! That too was superb.
This is, in my view, one of the best restaurants in London. We will be returning and hopefully soon.

“Amazing food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

This is the second time that my husband and I have been to this wonderful restaurant and on both occasions have been extremely impressed not only with the quality of the food but also the attentiveness of all the staff. Michael was our waiter on this occasion and proved to be completely excellent throughout the whole evening. Every dish that we had was just superb and impeccably presented. We cannot wait to return for our third visit.

“Great food, atmosphere and staff ... and cocktails”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

Everyone gets a certain number of great restaurant evenings in their lifetime, and we had one of ours at this restaurant.

We chose this place to celebrate my partner’s graduation and in a respectful nod to the festive nature of the evening, it began in the hotel bar with a few very stiff but scrumptious strawberry daiquiris. And as it invariably goes, this put us squarely in the mood to eat. So we moved for the restaurant where we guided through an atmosphere which turned out to be perfect for us: busy enough to not feel Spartan but not so busy that it impeded us from continuing unhinged in our mischief.

Now, waiting staff – they have a tough job don’t they? But Michel read our situation and mood just right. He engaged us jovially, was attentive and enjoyed himself around us without imposing, recommended a very good wine and made sure we tasted a good slug first, took us on a compelling meander through the menu which literally had pools of saliva evacuating my mouth and, by far the most important thing, made my mother-in-law feel special – she had travelled from overseas and does not speak English but he was able to include her in all this with his native and their common language German. Good man.

And so we ordered from the a la carte menu despite having come bearing a voucher (it was a very good deal). In all honesty, the food could have been average given our progressed state of indulgence and we still would have enjoyed it. And the thing is that, in the back of your mind, despite your brain relaxing glutinously into an ocean of daiquiri fumes, you know that is the case. So it makes it all the more impressive when, when you finally plunge into your plate, the food turns out to be high class. There is almost nothing better in this whole dammed life than, half-cut, gobbling your way though a very good steak and chips and swilling it down with a large glass of very tasty plonk.

But the real revelation was the desert. My mother-in-law’s three piece degustation-style plate of cakes was king, and my salted caramel ice cream was special too. And my fiancée was pleasantly surprised by the sweet biscuit which appeared before her with “congratulations on your graduation” written in chocolate. Unprompted, they had gone the extra mile. Well done, and thank you.
