Dined here during a London weekend. Has arranged in advance with the kitchen for a vegetarian tasting menu. The entire meal from start to finish was simply devine. Inventive, creative, delicious. Portions were well sized for our preferences, and each course just wowed us. Service, food and wine, was impeccable. One of the best dining experiences of our two week UK trip. The highest recommendation.

We dined here having stayed at the sister hotel COMO Metropolitan for our anniversary.

The attention and service from the staff was excellent; friendly and attentive without being over-bearing. Each course was introduced to us by knowledgeable staff that clearly had a passion for their food.

We had the 5 course Tapas menu and everything was cooked to perfection, delicate well balanced flavours with a really good accompanying bottle of wine.

We went for a Saturday evening meal. The restaurant was very quiet (8pm on a Saturday) but we decided to stay. The food was very good and very unusual. Overall delicious but would have been even better if it had been a little busier

Like other reviewers I can't understand why this place isn't more busy.
I think this is the only time we have ever found ourselves to be the only two guests in a restaurant throughout an entire lunchtime but we had a lovely time. The restaurant decor is simple and understated but there’s lots of natural light and the light coloured furnishings give the small space a more spacious feeling. This is tapas but not like you are used to. It’s the most innovative and surprising tapas type food we’ve ever had.
First of all I was reassured that they had taken careful note of my dietary requirements and would be adjusting the menu accordingly and this is exactly what they did. More importantly, this was achieved not by simply leaving things out for me which is usually what happens but by replacing things where required with something that was also very tasty and enjoyable but also gluten free.
I’ve posted a picture of the menu so you can see how different it is.
We both chose the Hake as our main course and it was delicious and we also both had the doughnut - except it's not really a doughnut!!
Our waiter was lovely, warm, friendly and helpful and we had a lovely bottle of white wine to go with our food. This was one of the best meals we've had for a while and we will most likely return and would be happy to recommend this place.
