“Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2014

One of the most beautifully presented dining rooms I've ever been in and the small space in no way feels cramped or over crowded. The service is excellent - knowledgeable but friendly and mercifully lacking in any pomp whatsoever. The menu is all infinitely eatable. Scallops, foie gras and truffle linguine to start. Linguine incredible, scallops zinging with the taste of the sea. Veal and turbot mains impeccable. Chocolate pave with salted caramel ice cream and hazelnuts beautiful but the soufflé of apricots with almonds and almond cream just perfect. Cheese and truffled brie impeccable. And the wine list is beautifully put together and not badly priced. For cooking of this precision and these surroundings - its a steal. Do go - but not too often as then it'll be hard to get in. Perfect.

“Just wonderful ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

Pretty hidden, but well worth it. Be sure to make a reservation, because the place is tiny. The food was just delicious, french-italian fusion. The soufflé is as good as the French ones, light and tasty. Friendly staff and nice decor. Don't miss it while in London.

“1 word: wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014

When we read the reviews on Tripadvisor, we were very curious about this little place. We weren't disappointed. The food is honest, fresh and delicious. We had the tasting menu with acompanying wines. The pairings were amazing and the combinations added an extra value to the meal.
It's never nice to leave a restaurant feeling like you've swallowed a balloon. Here the portions were just the right size. Enough to fill you up, but not too much.
The food had some wonderful flavours, loved the truffle pasta and the souffle, but everything else was great too.
The staff was very friendly and attentive to our wishes. We'll definitely return!

Tip: book well in advance since the resrtaurant is small or try to book a lunch like we did.
