My daughter and I went there for the Travellzoo Taster Menu with glass of Bubly-On Sunday; for my Birthday.
The ambiance was lovely--The food very nouvelle and very different!!
The First course was salmon--allegedly poached--but cold--interesting!! lots of coloured swirls and tiny pices of oyster on the plate.
The Salad of warm duck egg--with cold pickled vegetables and some sort of goats cheese, was even more intereting--and very pretty!!
The main course of hay smoked chicken was almost recognizeable--and very tasty--but no carbs?
I loved the deconstructed lemon merinque pie, but
my daughter asked if hers could be put back together again!!
I did not know what to expect with the Chocolate soup, but it was really just a very strong--bitter dark chocolate sauce, with a fennel sorbet--interesting taste combination!!
The chef came out to explain the different courses and was fasinating; I am not sure if this style of food would suit everybody; it cerainly wasn't my daughter's cup of tea, but we had a wonderful, fun filled evening, and it was certainly worth what we paid Travelzoo--just for the experience!!

We were in the "wine glass" restaurant.
The restaurant is fairly small and I suspect a good chunk of its clientele is either on business or residents, The restaruant is a little formal in style and problably not best suited to someone looking for a romantic location. However the food is to a high standard. Starters were imaginative and well presented. I had a cold salmon dish wish was delicious - totally smooth and succulent. For mains pork loin wrapped in parma ham. Very tender. The only mistake made was that we assumed it would be served with some vegetables. We had to hastily order these once the dinners arrived. Perhaps we could have been fore warned.
Overall I would describve as posh British - it was good food & all well cooked, Enjoyable, but perhaps a bit pricey.

Not inexpensive probably due to the chef spending an inordinate amount of time rolling, chopping and bending the food into odd configurations. We don't like to think of ourselves as being pedestrian eaters but this left us a bit dumbfounded - a number of the items came in sushi-shaped tube forms which blended various components into close proximity so each mouthful was necessarily a blend of flavours - perhaps the intention of the chef. Hence, we spent a lot of our time wondering what was in each mouthful. Smallish portions. Good, attentive service. "Karen99"'s advice about the ability to order from a simpler menu in the bar is probably quite useful knowledge - we didn't know that.
