3rd time here and still very very good. Because we love the place so much I don't want to criticize, however.... We all 4 had the taster menu at £120 per head without wine. The portion sizes were on the small size to be honest, some just 2 mouthfuls. All wonderfully presented and high std of food but simply not enough. The waiting staff were chatty (which I like) and approachable. One of my pet hates is getting stitched up on the wine prices but here there was all range of prices and when I selected a white at around £65 and then asked about a red he directed me to a bottle of a similar price. Michel Roux did pop in and he was as charming as ever. My pals own a fine dining restaurant in Southsea Hants called Restaurant 27 (go there!) and he chatted to my friend the chef patron which was charming. The bill ended up at just shy of £900 for the 4 taster menu and 3 bottles of wine. I didn't notice the inclusive tip of £90 as I always take the tip of bills and leave cash at the table based on the overall experience.. Anyway it was all good but just not as good as I remember last time.. (maybe thats just me!) I'd rate this at 8/10 this time around but would I go back, yes but there are other places I want to try..
