Being our second visit to Ottolenghi, we knew that the food would be superb. However previously it had only been the two of us for brunch, and this was a large dinner group, with small children for an added challenge. However, any apprehension we'd had before we got there quickly evaporated as we sat down. Almost everyone was late but the staff were unflustered and didn't rush us even though we were supposed to only have the table for a limited period. Assuming that we'd need to order from a set menu, I was pleasantly surprised when this turned out not to be the case, so that everyone got to order something they actually wanted. Wine suggested by our waiter was very agreeable, and led to us agreeing to another bottle after the bottom of each one was reached. For 'casual fine dining' it was refreshingly unpretentious and as an added bonus was not as expensive as we were expecting. A memorable night that was made effortless by the excellent staff, the only difficulty we had was deciding which of their desserts to have from their diabolical display at the front.
