Old style French dinner at its best. Think La Tour d'Argent in Paris and you get close. Started with 'pata negra' 5 J sliced next to our table by Otto himself. In retrospect we should have also have the hand sliced smoked salmon and shared....next time. Wine a 2008 Aloxe Corton was perfect. For the mains I had grouse off the bone which was as good as it gets, cooked perfectly and my wife had lapin roti with mustard....superb. Many tables around us had the steak tartar which again was prepared by Otto rushing from table to table to assure everything was at its best. Another pleasant surprise was the breads (hot) and toasts served correctly enhancing the dishes. The wine list was solid and not overpriced so you really had a good selection in any price range and Otto has a "sweet spot" for Sherry, Madeira and Ports with an extensive list by bottle or glass. We finished the meal with a creme brulle with a 2000 Bual and were just relaxing (Otto does not do two sittings so the table is yours for the evening) and he offered us a 30 year old Sherry as he saw how we appreciated the Bual to properly compare the two. What we did not order (mistake !!!) was the chocolate souffle which at the next table we watched as the two gentlemen inhaled every spoonful. We did not try Otto's two course duck a la presse but we will next time. This is truly a restaurant out of old Paris in the heart of London. Don't miss it.
