“Great restaurant”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

This was a late Sunday lunch and the restaurant was very busy, food was very good and perfect service. It was my second time & will go again especially in the warmer weather when you can sit outside overlooking London Bridge.

“Excellent food, nice reception”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

The reception was warm and service good All dishes arrived at once for all our party I had the parma ham followed by Saltimbocca which was delicious. Atmosphere was delightful.I was impressed by the attentive service The only criticism was the fact that the waiters try and hard sell sides (extras such as vegetables) I can understand assisting diners with choices if they ask but if I want extra food I will ask for it. It embarrasses people who are on a budget especially if you are being taken out for dinner and someone else is paying . Maybe waiters should just ask if there is anything else you may like rather than how about some extra vegetables This implies that portions are small and you may not have enough to eat and also that the menu is not clear. . Why not just charge a lttle more and put the veg on the table where people can help themselves to save this undignified haggling

“Dinner”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

I went here to have a quiet meal with a friend on a Monday evening. There was a charming french waiter, think one of the managers and he provided us with excellent service and made us feel very relaxed. The lobster linguine as our main course was fantastic and I would not hesitate to order that again! All in all a very pleasant evening and the food seemed better than it was because of the wonderful atmosphere that the staff created!
