“Perfect for parties”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

Very good for cocktails and the steak is amazing. As you enter you are directed down stairs and it feels like you are inside an old castle. It suits all kinds, from romantic dinners to parties .

“Original and elegant place”

Dinner with friends: this place has a great atmosphere! Dining in a cave or dungeon surrounding with good quality food and nice music!

“Excessive”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

I think everything about this place is excessive, including the hype surrounding the bar, the time it takes for you to get served at the bar, and their prices. I suppose it's a good place to spend some time, but during weekends it becomes so busy that it's almost impossible to stand anywhere. Also, the bar closes at around 23:00 if I recall correctly, which for the standard of this bar is far too early.

“Excellent, Fun, and Quirky”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

We booked this for dinner on our visit to London, and had a wonderful time.
We sadly left a little earlier than expected, not because of the venue, but because I had suffered a terrible bout of hayfever after spending the afternoon on Kings Road, where the pollen from the trees seemed to be effecting a lot of folk. So to the staff, we really wanted to stay longer, and enjoy more of the wonderful cocktails!! So we will come back very soon!
We were seated in the Chapel area, and we felt the whole venue was beautifully presented, quirky, and fun. The staff were friendly attentive, and professional, and we certainly couldn't have been more looked after.
Service was friendly and excellent, food was excellent both in presentation and flavour. Cocktails were amazing, we wanted to work our way through them all!
Great jobs folks, and see you soon :)

“Feast for the eyes rather than the palate!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

Dined as guests of friends and was disappointed for them that the restaurant did not provide the dining pleasure that they recalled from a few years back. Cannot dispute the intriguing interior but felt the staff spent the evening teetering on the brink of chaos! I had a rather unsettling feeling of unease all evening, maitre d over exuberant (too Made in Chelsea for me!), waiter under confident and a longer than reasonable wait for our main courses. My husband and I did however, both enjoy our food choices ....chicory salad and scallop apetizers and main courses of duck and grilled lobster parpadelle although not so much that we decided to order dessert or coffees. Shame, could be fabulous but needs some urgent service reorganization.
