We thought long and hard about where we should go for our anniversary. We wanted great food in an intimate atmosphere. This restaurant ticked these boxes. It isn't cheap but they have to keep a restaurant going with only fourteen covers and the service is impeccable, friendly and never intrusive. The tasting menu was a well balanced meal. A question. Turbot seems to be flavourless. It was rescued here by a fine sauce. This fish was poached in celeriac with fennel and a black quinoa beurre noisette. Could it be that farmed turbot has taken over from wild fish which had more flavour? Charolais beef was braised in tamarin and spices, it was special. We had a soufflé of macadamia nuts, honeymoon melon sorbet and raspberry purée.
They offer matching wine. We settled for a glass of amazing Turkish white and an equally good red from Portugal.
Even without Marianne in the kitchen this was a memorable meal. They even decorated our petit fours plate with the words happy anniversary. Nothing is too much trouble.

This is a small and intimate restaurant that serves only tasting menus. The food is quite exceptional and the courses very well selected to offer a wonderful range of tastes and flavours. The service is first class and the tables are not 'turned' so time is not important. There is a vegetarian tasting menu on offer, which my daughter appreciated and which was equally good.

Don't think I need to write a lot about this place. Went there for a evening meal and it was simply excellent. Despite I think it is pricey you don't regret paying when the food is so good. Lovely charming staff but it is all about food. Loved it!!

The booking process was wonderful thanks Claire and then from the greeting at the door to the petit fours there was total perfection.

The staff and food made you feel very special and the wine list was wonderful. An excellent pairing between the manager and the kitchen and the drum beat service was best in class.

The food was exceptional and one of the best menus I have tasted in the last year.

Well done everyone for making two ladies birthdays so memorable ....
