We have been to this restaurant a few times previously but not for around 2 years, we were so pleased that we went back! The service is excellent, food despite being quite pricey was great and the menu very varied. We were surprised to find it was so quite for a Saturday night but as the evening went on it started to get busier. I would recommend this place to anyone who enjoys excellent cuisine and doesn't mind paying slightly more for good service and ambience.

Went with a voucher - which turned out to be excellent value as you can choose anything from the menu with it.

Starters were delicious. Mains were varied in quality of flavor - some band (truffle pasta) , others overcooked (prawns) and some just not tasting like they're supposed to - (tangine)

Waitress very helpful and bilingual and accommodating with the children in our party

Decor: love the atmosphere ie. intimate and slightly boho.

We had a dinner for two at the terrace. Location is good: a quiet street. Once it started raining, they lowered the blinds in time so we could keep sitting outside, which was great. The tables are small though, and the chairs rather uncomfortable. Staff is friendly but could be a bit more forthcoming. The food I had was quite good, the warm beef salad as a starter was even delicious, the monk fish with black beans and saffron reasonable.The other starter, fish tartar, was a bit bland, and the meat nothing special - vegetables limited to one little carrot. The cheesecake (enormous sharing is a must) was a bit weird, more fluffy than ususal, not bad but not good, and the coffee tasted of nescafe. It was very expensive though, as well as the wine. Not too many options by the glass.

The food is modern, quite good, but you will be squeezed into a space of 0.5m2, bearly allowing you enough space to lift your elbows while you eat, because they just don't have enough space to fit everyone in. Ah, and you will be sitting on an unconfortable stool.
