“Impressed and delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

Small, intimate place with a very interesting wine list. We so wanted to choose a non French wine because they have some adventurous choices and in the right spirit of this lovely restaurant but we reverted back after a few tastings. Little plates of crab, duck, terrine and squid, followed by sea bream expertly cooked. Shared cheese and chocolate mousse! Indulgent, fairly priced and great atmosphere. If you are in Covent Garden it is a must!

“Very Enjoyable Evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Whilst staying a couple of days in London, looked on Tripadvisor to see what was worth going to that was near our hotel.

Read the reviews for 10 cases and as it was only a couple of minutes walk away then thought we would give it a go.

What a lovely little gem. Nice selection of wine – not massive but some very good ones on there. Discussed with the lovely lady behind the bar who was most helpful and also knowledgeable. If I had one criticism then it would be that the wine list is really hard to read as it appears to be handwritten.

The place is very small and the tables with diners on are literally a step away from the bar however, this (to us) just made it feel cosier. We didn’t eat there although the compact menu looked very inviting. We sat at the bar when you can plenty of bread/olives etc. to go with your wine if you want.

It was very busy and due to the size of the place it was quite noisy however, we would much rather have that than somewhere with little or no atmosphere.

If you are looking for a cheap glass of wine somewhere then this place is not for you, if you are looking to try some nice wines that you don’t normally see then give this place a go.

We will definitely pop back in again next time we stay in London.

The wine and the food wwere outstanding!! Able to sit outside or sit in and still people watch. The wait staff were friendly and very helpful in assisting with wine selection to go with your food.

“A very good evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013 via mobile

A small restaurant but certainly one to visit. We were lucky to get a table as we didn't have a reservation. The staff were welcoming and attentive. An interesting wine list which was a little difficult to read as it was handwritten. However I really enjoyed my meal and the steak bavette was a good choice. Order wine by the bottle; otherwise its expensive by the glass. Overall a good choice for an evening meal but prices could be a little lower to really satisfy.

“Small precious in big London”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

Probably noone who was not invited by friends will not find this small place hidden in London. Fortunately I was invited. Restaurant run by group of young and friendly people. Lack of space and strange menu system spread on small boards in strange places at every wall. More the nice place than formal restaurant. But appearances are misleading :-) Top class food, small but really good list of wines (this is also the mail idea around the name of restaurant - they never buy more than 10 cases of particular wine). Perfect fish, and tried the friend steak - really did not eat better for years.
